And one for my Kiwi readers.

Inspiring professional learning at your convenience — streamed straight to you!
Kia ora Michael

We invite you to join our next streamed breakfast seminar on Friday 16 June:

Future-focused Education – understanding the trends

What are some of the things that are likely to have a significant impact on how we live and learn into the future? What should we be taking notice of and how might we need to respond?

This live-stream presentation will explore how current trends can help us understand the need and opportunity to create future-focused responses in the way we organise and deliver learning to our students.

This CORE breakfast seminar will

  • Explore some of the trends that are shaping how we will live and learn in the future
  • Relate these understandings to the future-focused themes in the New Zealand Curriculum
  • Inspire you to create deeper learning experiences for your students to ensure they are adequately prepared to live and work in their future
  • Consider related issues of ethics, equity, safety and citizenship
