21st Century Learning - Hong Kong Conference
Posted 02/24/2016 10:12AM

"The 21st Century Learning Conference is the annual event in Hong Kong where teachers, EdTech staff and school leaders gather to learn about the future of education from thought leaders, technology and learning experts, and their peers". -

SIS was honored to have three of its staff members present at 2016 conference:

Diana Beabout, Learning Innovation Coach - Building Capacity For Professional Sharing

"At SIS we've really been building capacity among our teachers to facilitate relevant and meaningful professional learning with our own staff. However, events like the 21st Century Learning Conference provide opportunities for us to connect, interact, share, and learn with other educators, academics, researchers and other industry professionals."

Martin Ruthaivilavan, Learning Innovation Coach - AMPed Reimagined #geniushour

"There is more than just a graduation diploma your child will receive from an educational organization. Many schools (like sis) are making sure that the entire mindset of the child is taken into consideration."

Ceci Gomez-Galvez, MS/HS EAL - Showcasing To A Global Audience: Empowering ELLs (English Language Learners)

"For learners from various language backgrounds, learning English within a rigorous curriculum can be quite a challenge. Applying it to show academic knowledge is even more daunting. However, where ELLs struggle most is in using a language that is not their own to showcase themselves as individuals. How can ELLs find their identity when they must use a language they were not born to use? And how can we empower them to find it?"

This year 21st Century Learning supported the inaugural WLead at the Conference

"WLead: Women Leading Change. This even is all about developing & empowering women in leadership within international schools." -
