Presented by Special Guest, Greg Whitby

Traditional schooling is no longer relevant in today’s world and there are expectations that schools (and school systems), reform and innovate to better prepare children for the demands of life and work in the 21st century. How do education systems and school leaders respond to this challenge? What frameworks, structures, roles and responsibilities are necessary to support reforms? What capabilities do teachers require and what does effective teaching look like in schools? How do we bridge the equity gap regardless of the background, interests and abilities of all children?

This workshop will:
• explore the changing nature of schooling in today’s world in the context of moving schools from "cottage" to "enterprise" using technology to support learning and teaching.
• share insight into a "whole of system" response to 21st century schooling at superintendent, leader and teacher level
• provide practical structures and frameworks for leading a 21st century system and school
• demonstrate practical examples of building teacher capacity through an inquiry and knowledge building model
