When: September 5th & 6th 2016

Where: St Johns Park High SchoolMimosa Rd, Greenfield Park NSW 2176

Areas covered include: Learning Dispositions/Habits of Mind; Critical Thinking; Oracy; Enterprise; Authentic Assessment; Collaboration; Application of Knowledge. 

We investigate current thinking on each of these areas, but, importantly, we also allow educators to experience these as your students will. You’ll also get a chance to see the impact of projects upon students at our host school.

An Education Worth Having: A Workshop For Parents

Where: Vega School, Gurgaon, New Delhi, Nr Eldeco Mansionz, Sohna Road, Sector 48, Gurgaon 122 018

When: 27th October, 2016

Making a pointDescription: The world our children are facing is very different from that of their parents. How is work changing, as we experience globalisation and automation? How do we support our kids through school systems that place such high value on passing exams, and less upon being engaged? How do we cope with the epidemic of high stress and low self-esteem that young people are facing around the world? In other words, what makes ‘an education worth having’?

This workshop is aimed at parents who want to see the bigger picture: the context in which learning needs to take place. After a presentation, we take parents (and teachers) through a number of exercises that identify what really matters in learning, and looks at a variety of teaching and learning approaches, in search of greater parental involvement of their child’s education.
