How Do We Prepare Young People for a World We Cannot Imagine?
Children beginning school this year are likely still to be working in the final quarter of the 21st century, so no matter how much they learn at school, it won't be enough, because most of what they need to know for their lives hasn't been discovered or invented yet. In this keynote, Dylan Wiliam will suggest that creating the schools our children need requires understanding what kinds of capabilities will be needed in the future, understanding why previous attempts at school improvement have been largely unsuccessful, and what we can do instead.

Catch the Attention of your Audience Within 3 Seconds
Vous n’avez que quelques instants pour capter l’attention de votre public et le convaincre. Le Storytelling vous permet de le faire et de tenir votre public en haleine jusqu’au bout avec une mémorisation beaucoup plus importante. Raconter une bonne histoire permet de convaincre votre public et de l’emmener à s’engager ou à prendre une action. Le but de ce workshop est de passer d’une communication descriptive à une communication narrative grâce aux techniques de storytelling et de conférenciers professionnels que Céline Renaud vous dévoilera.
Durant ce workshop, vous recevrez une boîte à astuces et vous allez comprendre quels sont les éléments clés pour écrire une histoire qui fonctionne. Vous pourrez alors directement tester votre propre histoire. Vous intégrerez ces éléments à vos sujets d’intervention. Vous allez vous entraîner à raconter vos histoires pour qu’elles fonctionnent, que ce soient vos anecdotes ou les messages de vos entreprises.
Il y aura vraiment un effet AVANT/APRÈS. C’est une des seules occasions de pouvoir tester de nouvelles choses devant un public réel et recevoir directement du feedback … et tout cela en vous amusant pour rendre vos présentations inoubliables !

Developing Future System Leaders in a VUCA World
Critical thinking, complex problem solving, and creativity are among the most cited future skills, due to their promotion by the World Economic Forum in their Future of Jobs Report. Yet their findings predate the global pandemic, the war in Europe, and worsening climate crisis that are shaping the perceptions of young people about the future. In a world best described as volatile, uncertain, complex and ambiguous (VUCA), systems thinking is the critical skill to acquire today but systems leadership is what we need to develop in our young people for the future. This session explores the «why » and the «how » of developing future systems leaders.

Embedding Formative Assessment
While many people use the term “formative assessment,” it is often used to describe something that is really little more than “early warning summative assessment.” In this breakout session, Dylan Wiliam will explain why assessment for learning is not the same as formative assessment, and why many approaches to formative assessment are of limited effectiveness. The session will also show how teachers can integrate regular minute-to-minute and day-by-day assessment into their teaching, so that what they do is more responsive to their students’ needs, and that their students, in turn, are more engaged.

Whose Language; Whose Standard? Linguistic Diversity in International Education
As we grapple with issues around diversity, equity, and inclusion in international schools, we must also start asking hard questions about our approaches to language, and to interrogate how the lens of privilege in education allows us to look away from linguistic discrimination in our schools. 
This talk will draw on sociolinguistic research and paradigms to help frame and examine inter- and intra-linguistic hierarchies in international school communities. Participants will reflect on their contexts and consider how these support or challenge dominant language hierarchies, and what ‘next step’ they can take to shift attitudes and practice around languages in their schools.

En vue des urgences socio-écologiques actuelles, je vais d'abord exposer quelques recherches récentes du domaine de l'éducation environnementale et de la construction d’un engagement écologique. Je parlerai des bien-faits individuels et collectifs obtenus dans les écoles qui travaillent régulièrement avec une pédagogie de plein air. Je présenterai ensuite, à travers des photos et des vidéos, quelques outils pédagogiques pour les enseignants afin de leur permettre de se sentir en confiance pour commencer à sortir avec leurs classes. Enfin, je parlerai du problème croissant de l'éco-anxiété chez les jeunes et de la façon dont nous, en tant qu'éducateurs, pouvons nous positionner devant nos élèves.

Transport Skills as Important Daily Living Activities
Non-specific aerobic fitness seems to be a very important player in brain development. During aerobic activities such as jogging, walking, or free playing the production of neurotrophic factors responsible for growing of neural networks increased. Therefore, current research has pointed out that transport and play activities significantly contribute not only to long-term active life but also to school academic achievement. The aim of this workshop would be to put light on these associations by emphasizing the necessity of transport activities during childhood.

Curriculum Revolution
In which I will look at the neverending process a school should go through to ensure it has a good curriculum that delivers knowledge and skills but also ensures all the teachers and pupils know what is being studied, when and why.
 
A good curriculum is a complex web of connections, what these are and how they are formed is central to whether an education is just a list of stuff to be learned or a glorious narrative that frees the child from their teacher allowing them to develop as a thinker and doer in their own right.

From Compliance to Development: Harnessing IB Programme Evaluation to Aide School Development
IB Programme (Re)authorisation has changed from the previous 2014 model with the introduction of the 2020 Programme Standards and Practices. The new model shifts the focus from programme compliance towards programme development. This is a fundamental shift in focus for IB authorisation, where the onus is now on a school to beyond compliance to the development of its programmes in line with its strategic planning and the framework of the 2020 Programme Standards and Practices.
 
The session will go through the changes in the authorisation model and offer practical advice on how schools can interpret the model to successfully use IB Authorisation as a vehicle for school development. The session is recommended for programme coordinators, school leaders, and those responsible for programme development and change management.

Teacher Learning
There’s a “knowing-doing” gap in education. It’s not that we don’t know how to improve schools, but that we haven’t been implementing these improvements effectively. The heart of the problem is a widespread belief that teachers lack knowledge, and if they are simply provided with that knowledge, they will become more effective. This hasn’t worked because for most teachers, improving classroom practice is less a matter of knowledge acquisition and more a matter of habit change. This session will focus on how school-based, teacher-led learning communities can support teachers in changing their classroom habits, and make substantial, and lasting, improvements to their practice.

Erik Erikson once said that crisis means growth. If this is the case, psychology as a science has been growing a lot in the past decade. The replication crisis has had devastating effects.

In his talk, Pedro De Bruyckere will discuss the findings from the forthcoming book The Psychology of Great Teaching in which he and his co-authors give a roundup of (almost) everything teachers and school leaders need to know about the current scientific knowledge in psychology.

Disrupting the Status Quo
Women in schools are the majority of the workforce globally, yet are disproportionally represented in leadership roles, especially as senior leaders. Women leaders also take longer to gain senior roles, are paid less for similar roles and flexible working practices are not seen as usual in many schools. The pace of change to the systemic issues which affect us is glacial so WomenEd is now disrupting the status quo. We want to innovate and bring about change to some key processes including job adverts, application forms or CVs, interviews, and professional learning opportunities.

Design Thinking - The Importance of Design Education as we Rapidly Move Towards the 22nd Century
There is much misunderstanding within education surrounding the academic and creative subject of ‘Design’. What, exactly,  does ‘Design Education’ mean in schools? As someone who has taught the subject of Design (and technology) for over 35 years in schools, and has led workshops for teachers on the discipline, there have been shifts in philosophy and approach which have shaken design thinking to the core. Stem is one such initiative, well-meaning but misses the core elements with a focus on technology rather than anthropology - arguably the essence of design education. Come along and hear what I have to say on how we can embed design thinking into the broader school culture, and shift focus from a curriculum-based approach into a whole school ideal. Discussion and debate guaranteed.

Effects of Digitalisation on Education: What Skills are Required?
Digitalization is not only a thriving force of changes in the labour market. Education must adapt to these new challenges. Thereby, discussion should not focus on devices and apps in the classroom, but on the skills needed in future labour market and in tomorrow’s society. Good education has to help children to become winners of digitalisation. How does this impact curriculum in schools? How does this change the role of teachers? Roger Wehrli will try to answer these questions by starting his presentation with some insights on recent shifts in labour markets.

Re-Inventing Education: From Addressing Symptoms to Causes
Covid-19 obliged schools and universities to pivot online overnight, often with poor learning outcomes. As education institutions embrace the new normal, many of them are looking at technological solutions to upgrade and reinvent themselves, often addressing the symptoms of what plagues education rather than the underlying fundamental reasons. Instead, institutions should take a closer look at issues such as teaching cross-contextual skills (that do not expire with the latest technologies and allow graduates to thrive after graduation) and assessments that evaluate real knowledge rather than information retention. These issues could be solved partially by technology, which becomes a tool rather than an end.

The Learning Principles: Research Informed Practice in Education for Inclusion
Current educational discourse frequently refers to the importance of developing independent learners who are agents of their own learning. A significant body of research in education and a number of social science disciplines provides teachers with the tools and pedagogical methods to create a collaborative and inclusive classroom environment that will facilitate the metacognitive and metalinguistic awareness that students need to develop their agentivity. This session will examine ten fundamental principles of learning in relation to the notion of student autonomy in an inclusive classroom.

What Foresight Is and Why you Need to Train this Muscle – Not Tomorrow, Today
The future is not a linear continuation of the present — it is exponential and complex.  The future does not exist in the present, but we can study a range of images of futures to be prepared for the unknown and the uncertain.  Our learners, our kids, will be in the world of work by 2030.  A part of them will be the leaders in 2040.  And the world will be extremely different then.
Foresight enables you to use the futures as your ace up the sleeve. It provides seamless transition from near to far with incredible sharpness, so that leaders can see no limits to their opportunities.

The Tall Poppy Syndrome
Tall Poppy Syndrome” (TPS) is a term commonly used in Australia, referring to the expectation that poppies should grow together,” as noted by Dr. Rumeet Billan, who explored the topic extensively in a study with Thomson Reuters and Women of Influence. “If one grows too tall, it is cut down to size.”
Tall poppy syndrome describes aspects of a culture where people of high status or success are attacked or criticised because their achievements make them stand out from their peers. The impact of "TPS" ranges from damaging effects on both mental and psychological well-being as well as a decline in emotional resilience. An immediate change is needed to support women in the workplace to encourage their accomplishments and consequently productivity in the workplace.
To what extent does the "TPS" exist withIN the education sector? This session will unpack the “Tall Poppy Syndrome” and discuss approaches and strategies to combat "TPS" within our schools.

Quantum Pedagogy: A Response to the Various Challenges Created by the Digital Universe?
Digitalisation currently tends to make some human brains 'lazy' and leads to a decrease in certain cognitive abilities.
At school, teachers are confronted with very different levels of learning in their classrooms and with operating modes that are increasingly difficult to channel. Capturing young people's attention and motivating them to learn has become increasingly complex with the rise of the internet and smartphones.
To meet the challenges of the new economy, companies need young, creative and critical thinkers on the one hand, and experienced employees ready to learn new technologies on the other.
How can we build more bridges between these two worlds - school and business, school education and lifelong learning? How can we motivate and help young - and not so young - people to learn throughout their lives and to develop new skills? Would it be possible to invent a new type of intelligence that would make the path to knowledge more personal, more joyful and more effective?
As a teacher and researcher in neuroscience, Jean-Jacques Martin will present his quantum approach to pedagogy, in which a biological brain and a benevolent AI must learn and teach each other to project themselves into a new universe shaped by accelerating social disruption.

Pédagogie quantique : une réponse aux différents défis engendrés par l’univers digital ?
La digitalisation tend actuellement à rendre certains cerveaux humains « flemmard » et entraîne une diminution de certaines capacités cognitives.
A l’école, les enseignants se trouvent confrontés à des niveaux très disparates au sein de leur classe et à des modes de fonctionnement de plus en plus difficiles à canaliser. Captiver l’attention des jeunes et les motiver à apprendre est devenu plus complexe depuis l’essor d’internet et des smartphones.
Pour relever les challenges de la nouvelle économie, les entreprises ont quant à elles besoin de jeunes collaborateurs créatifs et dotés d’un esprit critique affuté, et d’autre part de collaborateurs expérimentés prêts à se former aux nouvelles technologies.
Comment créer davantage de ponts entre ces deux univers – l’école et les entreprises, la formation scolaire et la formation continue ? Comment motiver et aider les jeunes – et les moins jeunes – à apprendre tout au long de leur vie et à développer de nouvelles compétences ? Serait-il possible d’inventer un nouveau type d’intelligence permettant de rendre le chemin du Savoir à la fois plus personnel, plus ludique et plus efficace ?
En tant qu’enseignant et chercheur en neurosciences, Jean-Jacques Martin vous présentera son approche quantique de la pédagogie, dans laquelle un cerveau biologique et une IA bienveillante doivent apprendre et s’enseigner mutuellement pour se projeter dans un nouvel univers façonné par une disruption sociale en accélération.

Giving Motivating Feedback on Attainment to Students and their Parents is Hard – This is How to do it Better
When a teacher reports how a student is doing it affects their belief systems – their beliefs about current attainment and their beliefs about ability to learn and progress in the future. Some teachers choose to give marks, rankings or grades whilst others prefer to communicate using fuzzy language. Neither of these approaches is value-neutral and both risks undermining motivation to learn under certain circumstances. This talk showcases some of the world’s best experiments and policy evaluations, which together give us both a framework for thinking about a student’s belief systems and an approach to talking about attainment that is most likely to yield motivating results.
