We’ve partnered with the International School of Geneva

Luna is being brought into their classrooms to support student learning.
The School is trying to encourage active recall methodologies alongside spaced repetition, and Luna’s flashcards are forming a key part of this.
Here’s what their ICT Campus Partner and Geography Teacher, Richard Allaway, had to say about using Luna:
‘Mastery of ‘Approaches to learning’ skills helps our students to excel during their studies and examinations. Using Luna is part of a large push which focuses on the discussion of active recall methodologies and spaced repetition with our students. The ability to set dates for assessments within Luna and use AI tools to summarise student-generated notes are features we really appreciate.’
It’s a really exciting partnership to be a part of, and we’re looking forward to seeing how student outcomes can be improved through Luna’s use.
Who are the International School of Geneva?
Over 100 years old, the International School of Geneva is the world’s first international school. It now has three campuses and students of over 130 different nationalities, attaining consistently exceptional academic results through an experienced and highly qualified faculty.
The School also invented the Model United Nations system, a way for students to learn about diplomacy and how international politics functions.
Likewise, it invented the International Baccalaureate Diploma Programme, something offered at over 5,000 schools worldwide now, with a mission to "develop inquiring, knowledgeable and caring young people who help to create a better and more peaceful world through education that builds intercultural understanding and respect".
The International School of Geneva is one of the most prestigious and well-recognised globally, and it’s a privilege to be trusted by them.
Where does Luna come in?
Spaced repetition involves reviewing information at increasing, optimised intervals for retention. Active recall means engaging with what you’re trying to learn - for instance, answering a question on it - rather than passively reading about the topic.
Both have been proven time and again to be particularly effective techniques for students, which is why the International School of Geneva are incorporating them into their ‘Approaches to Learning’ skills.
Here’s hoping the students there can use Luna to smash their exams!
