  2. 2. Dear esteemed educators, It is an exciting time for Asia K12 education in Asia. Our research shows that in this digital era, schools are putting considerable investment in educational technology, pedagogical development, and teachers’ professional development programs to become more progressive and innovative. However, as the school leaders, the evolution presents a variety of challenges: How can school scaffold engaging professional development programs that unleash teachers’ potential? What are the best practices for innovative pedagogical development that truly nurture students learning? How would schools integrate Ed tech for sustainable impacts, without falling into inefficient investment? How to cultivate impactful leadership & governance that sustain the momentum? With these pressing issues in mind, I am delighted to put together K12 Education Leaders Asia Forum 2016, to be held from 25-26 May 2016 in Singapore, where we focus on how great ideas have been implemented across progressive schools in the region. I invite you to explore our program, case studies and the speakers you will meet at K12 Education Leaders Asia 2016. We hope you will join us in this unique opportunity to share, engage and dive deep into interactive discussions on how good schools should be designed to bring visible and sustainable impacts on students. I look forwards to seeing you in May 2016, to get ready to build an engaging school that every student, teacher and parent loves!

  4. 4. ROUNDTABLE DISCUSSIONCASESTUDY CONFERENCE DAY ONE Wednesday, 25th May 2016 Establishing a culture of innovation beyond the classroom context Driving the shifting role of the teachers and the leaders to meet the Millennial’s learning needs Stephen Dexter, Jr., Secondary School Principal, Stamford American International School, Singapore 10:30 Morning Coffee and Networking Break 11:00 Technology-enhanced learning innovations to foster 21st century literacies in Gen Z learners: possibilities and problematics Formal schooling systems are facing mounting critiques of failing to prepare our current generation of young people for real-world learning, living and earning. Whether these critiques merely reflect the moral panics of our time, or accurately characterizes the realities of contemporary schooling in the main, the imperative questions of what counts as 21st century literacies and how can these be cultivated in ‘Gen Z’ learners remain highly pertinent for our global community of educators. In this session, Dr. Tan will share some evidence-based insights in the hope of stimulating our collective professional reflection and dialogue around: What constitutes essential 21st century skills and dispositions, as identified/defined by some current international and national learning frameworks? In what ways can these 21st century literacies be fostered through school-based pedagogical and curriculum innovations? How can we leverage contemporary affordances of technology-enhanced learning for cultivating key 21st century literacies such as collaborative creativity and criticality? What are some promising efforts in the areas of learning ‘big data’ and analytics, and computer- supported collaborative learning? How do Gen Z learners respond to these new technology-enhanced social learning possibilities in school? What are some key enablers and constraints encountered by teachers and students in engaging with such technology-enhanced learning opportunities for nurturing 21st century literacies? Dr. Jennifer Pei-Ling Tan, Assistant Dean, National Institute of Education, Singapore 8:30 Morning Refreshment and Registration 9:00 Opening Remarks from the Chairman Stephen Dexter, Jr., Secondary School Principal, Stamford American International School, Singapore 9:10 The emerging vision of a new K-12 education for the empowered kids of tomorrow A new paradigm for education is emerging in the world, going from the old "academic learning and personal accomplishment" ("Plan A") to the new “improving the world and real-world accomplishment." ("Plan B") Today, just about everything that goes on under the name of “education reform,” is about doing “Plan A”— Academic education—better. Unfortunately, “an improved Plan A", is not what today's and tomorrow's children need. Instead we need to change our mindset and create a "Plan B" education – one that further empowers our kids to make their world a better place by continuously accomplishing world-improving projects while they are still students—accomplishments that build their self-confidence as real-world "solutionaries.” This talk is about why "Education to Better Their World" is a far better education for tomorrow’s kids, what it looks like, and how to get there. Marc Prensky, Inspiring Educational Author, “Teaching Digital Natives” & “From Digital Natives to Digital Wisdom”, United States 9:50 Embracing the inclusive ecology of learning: thinking outside the class Innovation is the new buzzword, but outside of new tech and modern spaces, what does it look like? How do we build structures that support the new “ecology” of learning? Exploring accreditation alternatives that embrace change: the call for new structures and creative alignments for learning Backwards design: are we built for more learning or more schooling? T: +65 6722 9388 F: +65 6720 3804 E: enquiry@iqpc.com.sg W: www.k12eduleaders.com 11:40 Delegates will be divided into 3 interactive discussion tables.

Roundtable A: Developing a proactive and collaborative culture that empowers innovation Roundtable B: Strategizing a rigorous Professional Development (PD) program to attract and retain qualified teachers Roundtable C: Developing distinguishing leadership qualities to nurture impactful and effective governance practices 12:20 Lunch Break 13:20 Engaging with local community to design an effective community service learning program that nurtures problem-solving and social learning At Regents International School Pattaya, community service learning is a unique part of the curriculum. Each primary year group is linked with a community partner who faces a unique social challenge, to provide them with academic, social and personal learning opportunities. Year 3 and the Hand to Hand (H2H) project is one of the highly successful service learning programs at the school. Under the project, the children proactively interview people, identify the unique problem at the centre, and then sort themselves into problem-solving group tasks such as publicity, fund raising, product research, presentations, and communication. Based on the project, this session will touch base on the successful framework to ensure meaningful service learning that enables resilient, resourceful and reflective learning.

Endowed with the mission to "Engage. Enlighten. Empower", CIS developed the concept of this centre that encourages purposeful play through an opportunity for students to connect with the environment. The centre includes sand and water areas, a sound garden, mud kitchen, herb and vegetable gardens, bike and running track, turtle and fish pond, tunnels, hills and viewing platform - all areas for learning about math, science, social studies, literacy, art and physical well being. The outdoor learning spaces & activities promote children's brain development and environmental consciousness. This session will cover: Incorporating neuroscience and environmental stewardship into CIS's unique initiative Intentional students' outdoor learning experience with whole child development in mind Key essential elements to create innovative, enriching, authentic and outdoor learning experiences Researching the impact of this initiative to ensure maximum outreach and long-term involvement for students JoAn Radojkovich, Principal, Primary School, Canadian International School, Singapore 14:40 Afternoon Coffee and Networking Break 15:10 Empowering young minds: developing effective teaching strategies to instil the “growth mindset” among students Establishing high expectation tasks with encouragement to instil resilience and self confidence Scaffolding a viable risk-tolerant learning zone that praises efforts to encourage challenge-seeking learning attitudes Instilling the mind-set of a malleable mind to help students become fully aware of the brain's potentials Essential teaching and communication elements to encourage a student's growth mindset Cora Hui, Vice Principal (Secondary), Christian Alliance P.C. Lau Memorial International School, Hong Kong 15:50 Effecting and leading positive change with the integration of educational technology Every school has a unique set of requirements and staff members that form the culture of a school. In this presentation, Craig will discuss how to effect and lead positive change in your educational institution based on his first hand experience. Learn about successful staff professional development models and ideas directly relating to the integration of technology which positively impacts student learning. Effecting positive change in your institution is much more than having a leader willing to initiate change. It is about the process, the people and the product. It is about getting the first follower and starting a movement. Most importantly, it is not about you, it is about the movement! What are we up against? How are we similar and different? Does it matter? Effecting positive change stories and practical examples How to implement positive changes related to the integration of educational technology How to initiate change by knowing the process, your people and the product Successful staff professional development models and ideas Craig Kemp, Middle School ICT & Innovation Specialist, Stamford American International School, Singapore 16:30 Benchmarking strategic decisions for Ed tech integration and other new teaching resources to avoid inefficient investments Rapid changes in student learning resources, tools, and technology create pressure on school leaders to constantly innovate. While this is praised as forward thinking, there are overwhelming educational fads that struggle to provide meaningful learning after few years of implementation. Having coherent development strategies in place will help school leaders navigate their choices for suitable and sustainable technology initiatives while still seeking to implement the best of new possibilities in education. Learning from an inefficient 1-to-1 MacBook program, Ruamrudee International School (RIS) has transformed its Ed Tech investment framework. With well-defined objectives, thorough pilot programs, and cross-school collaboration, RIS has invested in education technology that positively impacts a student's performance. Key areas to be addressed include: Cultivating sustainable strategies to increase the likelihood of success on new initiatives and avoid educational fads Sustaining transformative changes by re-emphasizing on the rationale behind new initiatives Ensuring a well-planned scale integration of new initiatives into the school’s unique system Acquiring a critical assessment guide to make deliberate choices about new fads, tools and resources Balancing best traditional teaching methodologies with new innovation to reinforce engaged learning Daniel Smith, High School Principal, Ruamrudee International School, Thailand 17:10 Closing Remark & End of Conference Day One CASESTUDY CASESTUDY CASESTUDYCONFERENCE DAY ONE Wednesday, 25th May 2016 T: +65 6722 9388 F: +65 6720 3804 E: enquiry@iqpc.com.sg W: www.k12eduleaders.com ED-TECH LEADERSHIP AND THE CULTURE OF INNOVATION CASESTUDY
  6. 6. 12:20 Lunch Break 13:20 Introducing the “Flipped Staff Meeting” that works to spur innovation and collaboration among teachers! Heard of a flipped classroom? How about a flipped staff meeting!? This session will explore how a flipped staff meeting’ might work in reality. In the words of Peter DeWitt (2012), ‘Principals set the tone every day and the flipped model could represent a symbolic way of telling adults that we still have to be innovative, and it's really hard for a principal to preach innovation if they aren't using it in the venues they lead Understanding the needs and benefits of a flipped staff meeting "Quitting the announcement" – how the flipped meeting should be effectively designed, prepared and implemented to emphasize teacher-led discussion? Moderating and leading a flipped meeting to spur innovation among teachers Evaluating the pros and cons of a flipped meeting to decide when it is appropriate Overcoming the initial challenges when moving to flipped meetings to achieve exciting outcomes Sarah-Jane Green, Vice-Principal – Primary, ACG School Jakarta, Indonesia 14:00 Implementing Modern Learning Environments (MLE) in an international school Albert Einstein once said: “I never teach my pupils, I only provide the conditions in which they can learn”. That condition emphasizes the importance of modern learning environments where the students can learn and grow. This session will explore how to build an engaging and innovative learning environment at Nexus International School. Student-centric classrooms: what makes students stick and shine in their classroom?

This presentation will explore five personas of school leaders that can support the building of positive, healthy school cultures The Change Conductor The Capacity Builder The Selfless Innovator The Difficult Decision Maker The Collaboration Engineer Richard Bruford, Secondary Principal, Suzhou Singapore International School (SISS), China 10:30 Morning Coffee and Networking Break CASESTUDY PANEL DISCUSSION CONFERENCE DAY TWO Thursday, 26th May 2016 CASESTUDY 11:00 The changing landscape of teacher recruitment to select the best-suited teachers Leveraging technology to develop cost-efficient and effective global teacher sourcing strategies What matters to them? Discussing pay and benefits for expatriate teachers Grappling with the competitive landscape and a global shortage of quality teachers Cultivating a teacher's passion that goes beyond monetary welfare Graham Wilson, Head of Senior School, Dulwich College, Singapore Christophe Henry, Middle School Principal, Jakarta Intercultural School, Indonesia Richard Bruford, Secondary Principal, Suzhou Singapore International School (SISS), China 11:40 Strategizing a rigorous Professional Development (PD) program to attract and retain the best teachers Going beyond one-off training workshops and one-size- fits-all PD that are sometimes segregated from real classroom context, personalised teachers’ enquiry-based training transforms PD practices. Teachers play a proactive and collaborative role in seeking for relevant skillsets and ensure they also grow alongside their students. Key areas to be addressed include: Developing a professional learning community to nurture the ongoing learning culture Developing a culture of high trust, reflection and challenge to create healthy competency-based learning amongst teachers Understanding teachers development needs to design an engaging training program Building collaborative coaching sessions to create dynamic learning for teachers Customising a systematic enquiry system to ensure every teacher’s development is personalised Benchmarking the implementation, impact and effectiveness of training programs to ensure ongoing improvement in professional learning Colter S.

  7. 7. Deploying smart furniture and equipment that enhance teaching and learning Engaging students in both digital and physical spaces Dr. Stuart Martin, Principal, Nexus International School, Singapore 14:40 Afternoon Coffee and Networking Break 15:10 Ensuring a safe, secure and protective school environment As victims of child abuse speak out and international terrorism raises the alarm in recent years, international schools could be vulnerable targets and student safety has become a major priority for all. School management thus needs to enforce a comprehensive safeguarding framework and a culture of ownership to ensure students’ safety. This presentation will discuss all areas of the safeguarding agenda that can essentially guide a whole-school strategic security framework What are we up against? - The rising need to safeguard students How to implement stringent policies and procedures to ensure whole-school safety Embedding staff safety and safer working practices within schools Effective coordination to encompass safety for outdoor learning Site security: implementing stringent security procedures within a community context Ensuring the safe recruitment of staff Suzanne Murray, Deputy Head of School, International School Ho Chi Minh City, Vietnam 15:50 Building a school’s unique branding through parent engagement programs Governance structures and practices in international schools can vary greatly depending on the historical context of the school. This case study will look at ways to develop an effective parent governance culture in a long established, unique, not-for-profit school environment and suggest strategies for developing and improving a school’s unique brand through decision-making, collaboration and teamwork Parent governance: how governance structure can be effective to ensure the best outcomes for a parent owned and governed school? Building a successful voluntary governance culture: agreeing the decision framework for the strategic versus operational divide in a school Strengthening the partnership between school leadership and parent governors: building trust, consensus and cooperation Protecting and enhancing brand and reputation: the importance of community links and partnerships Roger Schultz, Head of School, Alice-Smith International School, Malaysia 16:30 Refining parent engagement programs – The case of Jakarta Intercultural School (JIS) Robust, meaningful relationships with parents will enhance the school community. Often schools approach this relationship through a disconnected series of events. How can schools develop a community involvement strategy, refine their message, and define targets to maximise the potential of the parent "grapevine?" This presentation narrates on JIS’s journey toward embracing their parent community and harnessing the power of their voice; complete with examples, mistakes and successes! Parents ambassador programs: the cost-effective resources to enhance school’s recognition Building successful parents ambassador program: passion, credibility, and connections Innovative approaches to strengthen partnership between the schools and parents via parents workshops and handbooks Leveraging effectively social media platforms to nurture parents engagements: benefits, pitfalls and practicalities Christophe Henry, Middle School Principal, Jakarta Intercultural School, Indonesia 17:10 Closing Remark & End of Conference CASESTUDYCASESTUDY CASESTUDY CONFERENCE DAY TWO Thursday, 26th May 2016 T: +65 6722 9388 F: +65 6720 3804 E: enquiry@iqpc.com.sg W: www.k12eduleaders.com PARENT ENGAGEMENT PROGRAMS

PRE-CONFERENCE WORKSHOPS Tuesday, 24th May 2016 T: +65 6722 9388 F: +65 6720 3804 E: enquiry@iqpc.com.sg W: www.k12eduleaders.com Brand mapping: crafting your unique value into a communications strategy Believe it or not, not every school has its branding. International education has become a fiercely competitive market, where decent infrastructure and best teachers may not be the sole criteria to attract students and their parents. A good Brand Mapping strategy can help to navigate & amplify school’s unique values, meet the expectations of families and build a brand that enrols students and recruits educators that are mission appropriate. The key is the school’s story and its unique vision, and constant willingness to grow. The school simply can’t be good at everything, and satisfy everyone. Michael Iannini will facilitate this workshop and lead participants through a process of developing a story about their school’s unique value and how that story will form the foundation for a holistic communication strategy. Conference delegates that attended the presentation on Brand Mapping will work with Michael to answer existential questions 2 and 3 to develop a draft of their school’s Brand Map. This exercise in Brand Mapping will teach participants how to: Identify the schools core reason to exist Create an emotional connection to the school brand Accentuate the school’s core competencies Define the school’s characters Provide guidance how to tell the story Communicate to the market their unique value Workshop leader: Michael Iannini, Managing Director, PDAcademia, Hong Kong Michael Iannini is an Affiliated CIS Consultant that focuses in appraisal and professional development, leadership training and school governance and strategic planning. Michael has worked with a number of Not-for-Profit Organizations, International Schools and Chinese Bilingual schools to develop curriculum, train teachers, devise parent engagement strategies and consult leadership on staff capacity building strategies, which has included a long and mutually beneficial relationship with ACAMIS and its network of schools. Michael has lived in China, India and Hong Kong; working in a variety of leadership roles. During these years Michael learned how to satisfy the needs of a diverse group of stakeholders, develop cross-cultural leadership and communication skills, as well as continue his studies in Building Effective Teams and Strategic Planning Growing a distributed leadership culture that captures and develops the diversity of skills and talents needed in a 21st century school In 21st century schools, the mental model of leader being the ‘one who has all of the skills and capabilities needed to lead the vision, create the culture, communicate with diverse stakeholders and be all things to all people’ is well and truly outdated. Schools are complex and challenging environments and the principal needs to grow the leadership capacity of those with positional roles and others and create a culture of ‘distributed/parallel/shared leadership’ to meet the needs of students and staff and enjoy success through others. This interactive workshop will examine leadership qualities with regards to empowering the school core values and vision; effective communication strategies to scaffold a diverse and competent school that empowers progression and fosters trust. It sets the fundamentals for lifelong learning to develop personal leadership capabilities. Key areas to be addressed include: From admin governance to leadership empowerment: what makes a successful leaders in 21st century schools? Leadership through Partnership (LtP): building relationship and healthy dialogue to drive effective change management Effective communicating with board members to engage and receive support for school strategic development Recognizing the full impact of the principal on the school development Adapting leadership practices to promote school’s unique core values, mission and vision Workshop leader: Jan Alen, Owner and Principle, Jan Alen Consulting, Australia Jan is Director of JA Consulting. She has worked in the area of leadership for over twenty five years, where she is driven by a desire to increase the confidence and capability of leaders. She brings a wealth of experience and insight to her work supporting the development of leaders, aspirants and leadership teams across a diverse range of organisations in Australia and internationally. She was a recipient of the prestigious Australia Endeavour Award where she worked with principals and system leaders in the Vietnam Ministry of Education and Training, and was awarded an ACEL Fellowship (Queensland) in 2011 in recognition for her ‘outstanding contribution to the development of leaders and aspiring leaders across the state’. Developing holistic Social-Emotional Learning (SEL) programs to cultivate students’ interpersonal skills and academic performance SEL is now at the heart of a holistic learning system, and a measure of students’ holistic wellbeing development. In 2015, 67% of educators said SEL was very important, compared with 54% in 2014 (Education Dive). It empowers students with self-awareness, mindfulness, and interpersonal skills that open more doors for their sustainable future success. SEL has also achieved positive correlation with students’ academic performance. Teachers, however, shared that they want more training to facilitate this special teaching approach. This practical and experiential workshop will provide you with insightful practices on how to smoothly implement SEL into daily curricula, starting with decision making as the organizing framework Assessing school needs and resources to effectively prepare the successful SEL curricula Incorporating SEL into regular curriculum to promote in-the- -moment awareness of thoughts, feelings and potential alternative actions Creating mindfulness exercises and ‘calming corners’ for pre and after-class activities to nurture both personal and cognitive development Effective hiring of counselor and education consultant to develop fruitful SEL instruction Inside Out - Developing holistic curricula that help students to transform from independent to interdependent individuals Benchmarking the impacts of SEL programs via parents feedback and academic review Workshop leader: Chris Spetzler, Executive Director, Decision Education Foundation, United States Chris Spetzler, Executive Director of the Decision Education Foundation, is passionate about bringing decision skills to young people. Chris has taught Decision Quality to educators through Stanford Center for Professional Development and to students through Stanford Pre-Collegiate Studies.
