Conferences are great in that they provide a unique venue to showcase some of the latest trends and ideas in education, and participants often leave inspired and motivated to renew their practice, but, in most cases, that enthusiasm dies down as the days and weeks go by and educators find themselves back in their usual environments.
Learning @ Global World
Schools are no longer islands which stand alone but are necessarily part of a larger network which includes other schools, communities that surround them, partnerships with external educational organizations and social online learning networks. Addressing this reality entails reviewing the way learning and teaching is carried out in our schools.
“Educating for a Changing World”
Schools worldwide are confronted with the crude reality that our present school system is not ready to respond to our learners’ present and future needs, prepare them for jobs which still do not exist and incorporate the new learning technologies.
“Rethinking Education to Make the Difference”
This is an opportunity to reflect on the way schools are conceived, explore what issues schools should address, understand how children learn and how best to teach the coming generations. Are all students the same? Are all teachers the same? Do gender differences matter? How can we sustain student interest? We believe this event can help us find creative answers to these questions with fellow educators
“Making Connections”. We believe it is time to start “connecting” the topics we have explored in the past three years: new trends in bilingual education, assessment for learning and 21st century skills. How do these impact on our everyday school life? What is the role of creativity in our schools?
