Perth, Australia – Educational Trends to Fear, Fight and Embrace
June 9, 2014 @ 9:00 AM - 12:00 PM
The SSTUWA welcomes Gary Stager to engage, motivate and celebrate with school leaders and teachers. Gary Stager’s conference presentations, keynote addresses and school presentations are known for being provocative, witty and full of examples of children doing remarkable things.
This internationally recognized educator, author, speaker and consultant returns to Perth for the first time in years to share his observations collected from direct experience in schools around the world. Although there are powerful forces hell bent on eroding the public’s confidence in education, privatizing public schools, and turning classrooms into joyless factories focused on standardization, there is room for great optimism as well.
In the 21st Century, educators need to create productive contexts for learning in which students are prepared to solve problems their school never even imagined.
Educational Trends to Fear, Fight and Embrace
AN EVENT DESIGNED FOR SCHOOL LEADERS
We stand on the shoulders of giants and know what to do on behalf of the children we serve, but will we do the right thing?
This freewheeling conversation with a provocative thinker, whose recent work has included teaching and mentoring some of Australia’s “most troubled” public schools, should inspire educators in the role as classroom and civic leaders.
No question is off-limits!
