Students in the KED Program have their own logbook, to record how they are progressing towards their personal goals.
The student translates learning tasks into a few sentences that describe, for example, what she is to study, how many math problems she needs to solve and which exercises to do. The student, her parents and her teachers can suggest changes.
“I get an immediate response, which I never got at other schools. When my son was in year 1 to 5, an entire term might pass before we heard that something had to be changed,” says one father of a boy in a KED school.
At our schools, parents keep abreast of their children’s schoolwork by reading their own daily notes in the logbook.
If the teacher thinks that a student should change his work path somehow – revise a goal or try a new approach to studying a subject – everything is stated in the logbook.
In this way, the logbook gives parents insight into their child’s work. It allows them to participate in their child’s schoolwork, react to it and be a driving force behind it, when needed. As a parent, you can contact the teachers any time.
The Kunskapsskolan schools are among the leading schools of Sweden. The success of its KED Program can be judged not only by students’ performance being higher than the Swedish national average, but also by the growth of KED schools across international boundaries. Currently, over 100 KED schools and KED Inspired schools are operational across Sweden, UK, the Netherlands, India, USA and the Middle East. The schools follow the curriculum of each country and grade student performance according to national standards.
