KEYNOTE - Changing Perspectives: Seeing Students in a Different Light

One of the greatest gifts of neuroscience is the affirmation of neuroplasticity - that the brain can change lifelong. This provides new hope for us as educators, as we often struggle to engage our students in a meaningful way.

Family dynamics, social relationships, the ability to handle stress - these are just a few factors that can impede a student’s potential for optimal performance. Children who appear to be unmotivated in school, or who display behaviour that needs to be addressed, are often struggling with issues that are not entirely visible. Remarkably, given that the brain can be rewired, the way in which a teacher responds to a student having difficulties can be a game changer.

The solution for developing resilient young people is simpler than you think. Sharing some of the most illuminating stories, examples, ideas, and insights from 25 years of working with students and their families, Louise Favaro will show that in our profession, we are not just developing lifelong learners, we are developing people for life.

(Dis)Connected: Maintaining Human Relationships in a Digital Age
Limited Capacity seats available

Our smartphones and tablets have revolutionised the way we and our children communicate, connect, collaborate, and play. The advantages of these tools to education are limited only by our imaginations. And yet, these technologies also bring with them new challenges and genuine risks to the social and emotional development of our children. From the parents who hold their baby with one hand and and answer email with the other to the teens who are exposed to photoshopped images of perfection that make them feel inadequate; we are all experimenting with these new technologies without a guide book that tells us what will be the long term impact on our children's development.

It is our hope that attendees will come out from this session with an increased understanding of the likely impacts of new technologies on students' social and emotional growth and a deeper grasp of the ways in which we can maintain real human connections in a brave new world of 24-hour Wifi and anonymous chatting services.

Active Learning
Limited Capacity filling up

Cambridge International Examinations uses ‘active learning’ to describe a classroom approach which acknowledges that learners are active in the learning process, building knowledge and understanding in response to learning opportunities provided by their teacher. This contrasts with a model of instruction whereby knowledge is imparted or transmitted from the teacher to students. For Cambridge, active learning means that learners take increasing responsibility for their learning, and that teachers are enablers and activators of learning, rather than lecturers or deliverers of ideas.

The presentation will explain the theoretical concepts and research evidence for active learning. We will look at examples of what it means in the classroom and examine how the Cambridge curriculum supports active learning. Finally we will consider challenges to the implementation of active learning and how the approach may need to be adapted in the Indonesian context.

Approaches to Learning in the 21st Century Classroom
Limited Capacity full

As the 21st Century unfolds data suggests that young people will have as many as 3-5 different types of careers in their lifetime. Increasingly, employers and universities are suggesting that students need a wider range of skills, which they have the ability to use in a variety of situations. So how can schools respond to these requirements?

With reference to learning in 1972 Alec Peterson said that: ‘….what matters is not the absorption and regurgitation either of facts or of predigested interpretations of facts, but the development of powers of the mind or ways of thinking which can be applied to new situations and new presentations of facts as they arise.’ More recently in 2013, Lance King has spoken about the need for a ‘learning skills capability programme’ as being an essential part of school pedagogy and structures.

This session will examine the nature of the Approaches to Learning paradigm that is transforming teacher understanding and student achievement within the classroom. We will examine ‘What makes a good learner?’ ‘What understandings, skills and techniques do teachers need in the modern classroom?’ and consider ways in which you can move your schools to one that develops ‘autonomous learners’ with the persistence to tackle obstacles, using habits of mind and study, practised across a broad range of circumstances rather than on a narrow range of occasions.

Are the 'Smart' Kids Really That Smart
Limited Capacity seats available

Growing up we all knew who the ‘smart’ kids were.  They were the ones praised for getting 10/10 and inevitably always answering every question correctly. But what does praising students for getting something correct say to students about what is important?  Are we fixating purely on student performance and shying away from encouraging them to take risks and make mistakes? Carol Dweck, believes students who receive specific praise for their efforts try harder and show persistence. These ‘effort’ kids have a ‘growth mindset’.  They are resilient and strive to improve.  

In this session we will look at how you can develop the skills to encourage a growth mindset in yourself and your students so that you can:

  • Motivate and inspire students to reach their highest academic potential
  • Explore strategies for improving student achievement and success

Developing Reflective Learners with Constructive Feedback
Limited Capacity seats available

There are several pedagogies being applied to teaching to enhance and maximize students’ learning.  Integrating technology, problem solving, critical thinking and games can help in the learning  of students.  However, there are skills that need to be inculcated to the students which can help with their emotional growth. 

Being a reflective learner is one of the essential skills that need to be developed in each student.   It is a skill that will ensure students’ success once they step out of the four-walled classrooms.   Identifying  one’s strengths and weaknesses can be supported  by teachers  by  giving immediate and constructive feedback to the students.   Giving each of the student the opportunity to reflect on their strengths and weaknesses will not only enhance their  self-esteem  and confidence but will  give them the pride to take ownership of their learning.  

In this workshop, several ways of giving immediate and constructive feedback will be discussed.   Emphasis will be given on the impact of varied feedbacks to students’ learning.   It is expected that at the end of the workshop, teachers can bring with them knowledge that will have impact not only on the students’ learning but also on their emotional development.

Teaching 10 Character Traits To Transform Your Primary Classroom by Transforming Your Students From the Inside Out
Limited Capacity seats available

Before we can fully motivate our primary students to apply themselves to learning academics, we need to establish a love-trust connection with them.  One effective way of developing this bond is to teach character traits a few minutes each day.  The results from incorporating character training in the classroom are profound. For example, classroom management issues are greatly minimized, peer relationships are enhanced, parents notice positive changes at home, school administrators see the difference on the playground, and teachers report a more collaborative atmosphere in the classroom.  Join our workshop to learn more about character education in general, and to see sample lessons for Primary level classrooms on some of the following character traits: integrity, conviction, self-discipline, diligence, wisdom, loyalty, courage, humility, kindness and thankfulness. Resources for classroom teachers and parents will be available for your perusal or purchase.

Effective Questioning
Limited Capacity seats available

A Science teacher has a special role in bridging the gap between Science as knowledge and the real world. In order to become effective science teachers, we need to have some strategies and one of the strategies is to create effective questions that lead to improving the student’s higher order thinking skills. In general, asking a question is the essential key in gaining information. In classroom learning, social interaction among the students is sustained by questioning. During classroom instruction, teachers invariably ask many questions to guide their students to gather information and to promote learning. Questions have many purposes. For the teachers, questions allow them to determine how much a class understands the lesson and a question is also an important tool for managing the classroom; especially keeping the students alert and interested with the lesson. For the students, questions can help them to reflect on information and commit it to memory, plus it also can develop their thinking skills, encourage discussion and stimulate new ideas. Questioning is seen as an important pedagogy.

Reach Them to Teach Them is an important phrase for all educators today. It is the call to make which emphasizing in the importance to be a positive influence in each learner. Educators should also realize in the importance to be the role models for the learners and have authentic relationship with them.

Nowadays, learners have faced a more challenging problems and adversities at home, relating with their friends, as well as pressures given by the media. Thus, they need educators who trusts in them, supports them, engourages them, and even only talks to them. Educators who have the ability to engage with the learners and bring out the best of the learners.

Understanding Students with Learning Difficulties
Limited Capacity filling up

The number of students with learning difficulties is significantly on a rise each year. Ranging form mild to severe many of these students are enrolled in school with their challenges being identified not until much later in their education path.

Learning difficulties, or learning disorders, are an umbrella term for a wide variety of learning problems. A learning disability is not a problem with intelligence or motivation. Kids with learning difficulties aren’t 'lazy' or 'dumb'. In fact, most are just as smart as everyone else. Their brains are simply wired differently. This difference affects how they receive and process information.

Students with learning difficulties see, hear, and understand things differently. This can lead to trouble with learning new information and skills, and putting them to use. The most common types of learning disabilities involve problems with reading, writing, math, reasoning, listening, and speaking.

By understanding more about learning difficulties, you can ensure your students gets the right help to overcome classroom challenges and succeed in life.

Character Education in the Secondary Classroom to Enhance Learning by Transforming Students from the Inside Out
Limited Capacity full

Youth who focus only on increasing their knowledge and academic skills will not be adequately prepared for a satisfying life as an adult.  Living a fulfilled life demands much more than academic knowledge.  For example, people lacking integrity and good morals experience severe relationship problems or may end up in prison for lapses in ethical behavior in their business.  Middle school and high school teachers who integrate a few minutes of character education in their weekly lessons experience greater motivation by their students, fewer discipline problems, and better student behavior.  Also, parents notice improved behavior at home.  In this workshop you will be introduced to 10 character traits that have been shown to improve students’ (1) academic achievement, (2) self-esteem and self-confidence, and (3) social behavior in and out of the classroom. The 10 character traits addressed in this workshop are: integrity, conviction, self-discipline, diligence, wisdom, loyalty, courage, humility, kindness and thankfulness.

In this workshop you will learn how teachers around the globe have successfully integrated character education with their regular lessons. Demonstration lessons will be given on some of the 10 character traits. Resources for classroom teachers and parents will be available for perusal or purchase following the workshop.

Discovering the Five Languages of Love at School
Limited Capacity seats available

Connections Make All the Difference !

  Teachers are so busy striving to have the best academic outcomes for their students that it seems they hardly come up for air to get to “know” their students. Research suggests that connectedness between students and their educators  is paramount to their success. Academic excellence and achievement happen at the crossroads of “human” and "academic” connection. Make these human connections in your classrooms and make the love languages as part of your school culture to add more depth and meaning in the environment and reduce inappropriate behaviours.

Based on the #1 "New York Times" bestseller " Discovering The 5 Love Languages " (R) , the interactive workshop aims to provide educators with tools and ideas of how to use the  love languages to understand students personally, promote a more tolerant classroom community and create an overall school climate of acceptance that will help teachers and students establish both human and academic connections.

Improving Student Learning Through Assessment and Feedback
Limited Capacity filling up

Excellent schools give a great deal of attention to improving the quality of their assessment practices. Assessment is not only critical in measuring achievement standards. It also helps students understand their own strengths and limitations, and know what they need to do to improve. Because of its significance to learners, teachers and parents, it is important to have a clear assessment policy.

This workshop looks at assessment that is used to support learning. This includes feedback teachers give to students in day-to-day interactions and how teachers can provide valuable oral and written feedback to students. Feedback that teachers get from students’  comments in class and work is critical in helping them understanding how the learner is thinking. Assessment information needs to be recorded and tracked in a way that is meaningful.

Teachers need to be sure they have a common understanding of assessment standards so we briefly consider standardising teacher assessments.

Positive Education Builds Bridges
Limited Capacity seats available

For Primary Educators:

A grateful heart is a magnet for miracles. Positive emotions broaden our horizons. They change the boundaries of our hearts and minds and change our outlook on the environment. When you are happy inside, you will have a better output of anything you do. This focuses on individual strengths on the process than the product and personal motivation to promote learning.

Supporting English Language Learners Across the Curriculum with WIDA
Limited Capacity seats available

Jakarta Nanyang School (JNY) has adopted the WIDA International Comprehensive System to meet the challenge of delivering curriculum to students with a range of English-Language proficiencies.

WIDA, developed in the United States, offers a system of standards-based instruction and assessment of English Language Learners (ELLs). WIDA allows educators to use information about their students to make data-informed decisions to support students in all classes for which English is the medium of instruction. Ultimately, WIDA helps teachers develop academic language and conceptual knowledge together in all subjects for our students.

JNY has begun to implement WIDA across its curriculum for subjects taught in English and even those in other languages. We would like to share how we have used WIDA to guide admissions, identify language supports, encourage collaboration, support professional development and interact with a global network of like-minded educators and WIDA professionals. Recently, JNY also hosted a two-day Workshop for area teachers, and WIDA's lead developers flew over from the United States to present.
