The web page of one of the schools I’ll be visiting while in Singapore…
International conferences are interesting places. You discover how education in these various countries is in such different places, and how we all have such similar goals, we’re trying to converge to a point that is more relevant to today’s children, the future we are preparing them for, an increasingly global awareness, and within a dramatically new information environment.
I will have the honor of working with educators from throughout Asia, at the International Conference on Teaching and Learning with Technology (iCTLT) in Singapore in a couple of months. It will be a boiling cauldron of ideas and perspectives, probably coming from opposite ends of a spectrum of education philosophies, where our goal is somewhere in the middle. I hope that this sharing of ideas will result, for me, in a better handle on what that goal is, what it looks like, what its outcomes look like, and how to talk about it.
