Episode 1 with Matt Elms and Lisa Wan: What are DSLOs and why are they important?

Singapore American School

In the inaugural episode of our Learning at SAS podcast series, deputy superintendent Dr. Jennifer Sparrow, middle school social studies teacher Matt Elms, and curriculum and assessment specialist Lisa Wan discuss one of our most-used acronyms, DSLOs—desired student learning outcomes. How, exactly, could we summarize the most important learning outcomes for our students in today’s complex and exciting world? Ask your children what they did today at school—hopefully, you will see some of our DSLOs in their answers!

In episode two, Dr. Jennifer Sparrow and two other guests will describe how we settled on the seven specific learning outcomes that we hope all students develop during their time at SAS: communication, collaboration, cultural competence, character, critical thinking, creativity, and content knowledge.
