Session 1: PYP Curriculum Planning - Part 1

{Experience Level: Beginner-Intermediate}

The collaborative process supports the transdisciplinary nature of the PYP. This session addresses the PYP requirement that schools have a system for regular review and refinement of the programme of inquiry. You will come away with clear criteria for evaluating a programme of inquiry document and a suggested process to carry out a school-wide self-assessment.

In this session, you will explore effective collaborative planning practices. This will be demonstrated through a simulation of the planning process, highlighting ways to engage the whole teaching team in developing units of inquiry and sharing best practices.

Implementing ManageBac in your school can be overwhelming and challenging.  Strategies for implementation will be discussed, including identifying stakeholders; training teachers, staff students and parents; and challenges you might encounter along the way.  An important part of the implementation process for each school will be deciding which sections to implement first and how much to implement.  As various aspects of ManageBac are discussed, this will assist each school to make informed decisions on implementation.  During this session I will share my experience at our established IB school.

Session 5: Visual Literacy
We all have received those horribly formatted documents. Comic sans font, no spacing, magenta color - everything that is a teacher's worst nightmare. But the question is who teaches all these skills to the students. By adopting the CRAP principle Contrast, Repetition, Alignment, and Proximity we all can make documents visually more appealing and meaningful. A simple mini-lesson with the students can help them enhance their presentation skills. This session will walk teachers through how to use the principles of design to make learning more visible and impactful for the learners.

Admissions Session 2: Marketing for Schools - what no one thinks to tell you…

School marketing is still in its infancy as a science and much misunderstood. Practised and espoused for decades by schools all over the world under various banners such as External Relations, Admissions and Marketing, this much underrated set of knowledges, experiences and expertises has still to see the proper light of day in schools. If marketing is NOT sales, NOT communications, NOT PR, NOT events and NOT defining target audiences with an annual schedule of activities designed to attract attention, then what is it? How can we better understand it? Harness to what we are already doing and make it work better for any school? A session for those who seek answers and practically applied knowledge.

Admissions Session 3: Power of Storytelling in Admissions
Every person who walks in to your school is searching for answers to an important question - 
  • How is this school different from others hence it is essential for every School Admissions and Marketing Head to identify those key messages?
  • What are the best practises to be followed while identifying the school key messages and it’s unique selling points?
  • Who should be involved in this exercise?

Once you have identified these key messages, you need to gather evidence that these messages are real and should be delivered in the form of stories.

Storytelling is a powerful tool in our daily life however, has anyone ever tried it in admissions with the parents? Can it be used as an effective way to deliver your key message? What kind of stories, how to find those stories, who should deliver them are the questions that will be part of the discussion.

After this, what will be the end result? Join the discussion to know more…

In a small school, the “admissions office” can be limited to one person.  This session will look at the challenges and benefits of having one individual perform much of this role through OpenApply and where the access for both Primary and Secondary Principals contributes to the process.  We will explore how this then integrates with interviews and enrollment as families move through the system.

Session 7: Preparing Today's teenagers for the 4th Industrial Revolution, the Disruption of Work.
These days, there is a lot of talk about the 4th industrial revolution -- the disruption of global labour markets. There are a range of forces driving macro shifts in labour markets -- from burgeoning middle-classes in emerging markets, to the role of technology in industry -- and these forces will impact every age group in different ways. But the group that we think about are teens, students who intend to enter the labour markets in the next 4-7 years. For these students, who are already grappling with a post-secondary education landscape that is evolving rapidly in real-time, staying abreast of emerging changes in labour markets is not just important, it is vital. During this session, we will explore the key labour market shifts that will affect Diploma students, and I will propose several concrete strategies for helping these students contextualize higher education and early career thinking within a world whereby the only constant is change.

Admissions Session 6: Why schools need better Communications?

I quote George Bernard Shaw “The single biggest problem in communication is the illusion that it has taken place.”

Communication forms an integral part of the admissions process - in fact, it may be the single most important factor. In this session we walk you through the messages on the school website, emails and phone calls during the assessment and admission process, ending with when the student finally walks through the school gate into a whole new world. This short session will leave you with a better understanding of the different components that help make communication more effective.
