PRE-CONFERENCE INSTITUTE - HOW CAN FOREIGN LANGUAGE TEACHERS STILL HAVE AN ACTIVE ROLE IN THE MODERN VIRTUAL TEACHING WORLD? From Teachers for Teachers: Sharing Experiences, Ideas and Good Practice in Foreign Languages to Enhance Effective Learning The teaching and learning process has changed tremendously in the past years and will continue to change rapidly in the future. The variety of teaching materials that are available support teachers in finding interesting ways of dealing with different topics. The influence of the modern virtual world though has got a much bigger impact than anybody could have foreseen years ago, when the internet did not yet offer such a variety of materials. As a consequence the role of the learner has changed as well: 21st Century Learners learn by doing, they can be far more independent learners and can have a more active role within the classroom using the advantages the virtual world can offer them through the modern media. How can teachers adapt to the necessities of the change of our virtual world? In this pre-conference we will focus on a variety of activities that can help teachers to still have an active role in the modern virtual teaching world. Adapting the teaching of foreign languages to the needs of our current learners has become a challenge. Blended learning (a mix of online and face-to-face instruction) has become an important trend. We will offer useful ideas and practical examples and give you a chance to exchange your own experience and ideas with colleagues from other international schools. Please come and join us for this special event on Nov. 22nd, 2012 in Nice!

PRE-CONFERENCE INSTITUTE - A PRACTICAL INTRODUCTION TO ANNE BOGART'S NINE VIEWPOINTS

14-16

In 1976 Mary Overlie, a contemporary dancer and choreographer, began a thirty year endeavor to deconstruct theatre and performance in the hope that she would find a set of ruling principles. This work saw Overlie develop a system she coined the Six Viewpoints, which have since been adopted and adapted by a variety of practitioners working in numerous areas of performance; the most famous and prolific being the work of Anne Bogart, Tina Landau and the SITI theatre company in New York. This workshop will provide an opportunity to put into practice Bogart’s version of Overlie’s system; the 9 physical Viewpoints (Kinesthetic Response, Tempo, Duration, Repetition, Spatial Relationship, Floor Pattern, Shape, Architecture, Gesture). I have been using this system with GCSE, A-Level, IB and Undergraduate drama, dance and physical theatre students for several years now and I can honestly say that this way of working has been one of THE most powerful and effective tools in my drama/dance teacher/theatre maker tool kit. Students, when using this system, get a feel for creating in the moment, the dynamism and excitement of the ensemble and a precise and shared language with which they can make, analyse, and write about theatre and performance. This workshop will give you an embodied understanding of a system that quickly and effectively demonstrates to students their power and creativity, as individuals and as a group. It is fast, physical and a bit sweaty, so you will need to wear loose and comfortable clothing; trousers can't be too long and work will be done barefoot. Please bring a large bottle of water and some cake to share. This workshop might also be of interest to Art and Theatre makers, Creative Art, Dance and PE teachers.

PRE-CONFERENCE INSTITUTE - MONACO AQUARIUM VISIT - EXPLORING THE OCEANS

3-18

This incredible field trip and workshop is designed for all educators who wish to learn more about the oceans. Led by Michael DiSpezio, you'll experience an entertaining and enlightening primer to marine science, followed by an afternoon field trip to the oceanographic exhibits at the Monaco Aquarium. For the morning session, we'll meet and work mostly onsite as we construct a general overview of the world ocean and survey its incredible assortment of life forms. The coverage will include an introduction to the disciplines of oceanography with emphasis on marine biology. During the morning presentations, participants will not only be introduced to the basics of marine science, but will explore ways this multidisciplinary subject can be incorporated into the K-12 curriculum. In addition, a trip to the local fish markets and Nice's own Musee d'Histoire Naturelle, will help prepare everyone for the afternoon's adventure to Monte Carlo, and the world renowned Monaco aquarium. Following lunch at the conference center, we are off as a group for a 30 minute bus ride to Monaco. Don't forget to bring your camera and walking shoes! Upon arrival, we'll walk to the Oceanographic Museum of Monaco. There we'll review concepts presented in the morning session. Plus you'll have plenty of free time to explore the marine exhibits. When we finish our visit, you are on your own and can take the bus directly back to Nice or remain in Monaco. This institute is aimed at teachers, administrators, and all individuals interested in learning more about the oceans, marine biology, and exploring the Monaco Aquarium resource.

PRE-CONFERENCE INSTITUTE -THE INTERNATIONAL ICT LEADER - VISION AND DEVELOPMENT PLANNING The role of Information and Communications Technology must fit in with the school’s vision for learning, but, in the 21st century it has a unique contribution to make given that it provides new ways of working and learning that have not been accessible in the past. As a result, a school vision that does not encompass ICT, its impact on learning and teaching and the efficient running of the school, becomes increasingly inadequate. Indeed, research has shown that embedding ICT into the heart of a school s vision equips it for the present and the future. By the end of this institute you will have developed an understanding for: * Whole school vision for ICT in the school * The self review process and how it can be used to bring your school up to e-confidence * Writing a near-term ICT vision for your school Delegates are also given the opportunity to use the resources provided in this course (and any other relevant resources identified), to draw up a near-term ICT vision document for your school post event.

USING ANNE BOGART'S NINE VIEWPOINTS TO MAKE, WATCH AND WRITE ABOUT THEATRE

15-18

Mary Overlie, a contemporary dancer and choreographer worked tirelessly for 30 years to deconstruct theatre and performance in the hope that she would find a set of ruling principles. She thinks she managed it. Her work saw her develop a system she coined the Six Viewpoints, which have since been adopted and adapted by a variety of practitioners working in numerous areas of performance; the most famous and prolific being the work of Anne Bogart, Tina Landau and the SITI theatre company in New York. And it is this system of 9 Viewpoints that we look at in this workshop. How does the practical knowledge and experience gained from Bogart's 9 physical viewpoints work in our classrooms? Time is given over to talking through Bogart's system, the language she uses, and we discuss the implications of students using this system in their classroom practice, theatre making and essay writing. The aim of the workshop is that we leave with a system that we can deliver to students; a system that empowers them to move towards not just excellent grades, but passionate, critical and articulate artistry.

SOCIAL THINKING CONCEPTS AND VOCABULARY FOR PARTICIPATING AS PART OF A GROUP

1 Implementing Social Thinking Strategies at School using Social Thinking Vocabulary While the terms “pay attention”, “cooperate” and “negotiate” are commonly used in teaching, however; their abstract nature prevents them from being strong teaching tools for our students who have more concrete learning styles. Using Social Thinking Vocabulary we explode the social code to help guide all students, but especially those with social learning challenges (e.g. Asperger Syndrome, ADHD, etc.) to learn to better process and respond to social expectations. Social Thinking provides concrete lessons for professionals using positive behavior instructional supports.

THE ICT CURRICULUM: A NEW START

3-18

Technology (ICT) has always been problematic in curriculum terms as it has both a body of knowledge and content as well as cross-curricular concepts and skills that need to be embedded in the process of learning for students. This session will introduce delegates to a new ICT Framework produced by Naace (The ICT association) that provides an audit and planning tool to enable schools to deliver a broad and balanced ICT curriculum providing a clear progression from kindergarten to middle years and a firm basis for examination and diploma studies. The framework is supported by detailed explanatory documentation and a toolkit of resources, research and examples of how aspects can be delivered in the classroom. It encourages teachers to adopt strategies that move beyond basic levels in Bloom’s taxonomy moving students into the higher order thinking skills while enabling learners to develop features identified by ISTE’s NETS.

HONESTY HONESTLY - A POSITIVE APPROACH TO ACADEMIC HONESTY

11-18

It is all too easy, when promoting academic honesty, to concentrate on what is not acceptable, to put the emphasis on academic dishonesty, on plagiarism avoidance for instance, and on consequences and punishment. Research suggests that this approach does not always help students and may confuse many. Nor does it help when different teachers - and parents - have different ideas about what is acceptable and what isn't. In this session, we look at and share positive approaches to promoting academically acceptable behaviour and practice, from the earliest years through to year 12.

IB EDUCATOR CERTIFICATES: DEVELOPING INTERNATIONALLY MINDED EDUCATORS

3-18

IB partners with reputable universities around the globe to offer educators IB-recognized courses of study. These courses of study support educators to further their own educational goals and immerse them in the IB’s mission, philosophy and pedagogy. Upon completing a course of study, educators receive an IB educator certificate (formerly the IB teacher award). The IB offers two certificates: the IB certificate in teaching and learning for teachers who want to develop their skills as reflective IB practitioners. The IB advanced certificate in teaching and learning research caters for those practitioners who want to conduct academic research into an area of IB practice with the support of university faculty. The IB certificate in leadership practice and the IB advanced certificate in leadership research are being piloted this year in select universities. This session will investigate ways that all IB-recognized professional development builds teachers capacity to critically reflect on their practice and build leadership capabilities involved in the authorisation and implementation of IB programmes.

Teaching from the Mind's Eye - Maximizing Every Learner's Potential Your brain is wired to see what is essential, not what is real. Drawing on the latest neuroscientific research and his vast teaching experience, Terry Small explains how mental models stand between you and reality, distorting all your perceptions…and how they create both limitations and opportunities. The new brain science suggests that learning can be greatly improved by teaching to the 'mind's eye'. Understanding " The 3 Principles" is key. Your brain is better than you think and belief changes biology. Terry Small, The Terry Small Learning Corporation, Canada

Myths about Creativity and the Creativity Crisis Dr Kim will discuss her definition of creativity and common misconceptions about creativity. She will also discuss the well-known “Creativity Crisis” in America briefly.

Harnessing Global Journalism to Teach Essential Competencies and to Empower Students What if our students collaborated worldwide on a common project that embodied all the best qualities of 21st Century learning, and while doing so changed the world? Our schools can empower students by engaging them as creators of news media and connecting them through their own global news agency, supported by professional journalists through the Pulitzer Center on Crisis Reporting.

MARIE CURIE AND THE FOUR CLIMATES FOR GARDENING CREATIVITY Dr Kim will discuss her theory of the Four Climates for Gardening Creativity and examines the Climates vis a vis the life and lifestyle of Marie Curie. Curie was not only the first woman to win the Nobel Prize in physics (1903), but when she won the Nobel Prize in chemistry (1911), she became the first person ever to win the Nobel Prize twice. Curie was the first female professor at the University of Paris. Her life will be discussed within the four climates that gardened her creativity. The Sun Climate fostered her inspiration, curiosity, and confidence; the Storm Climate fostered her persistence, risk-taking, and resilience; the Time Climate fostered her empathy and masculine qualities; and the Soil Climate fostered her open-mindedness and resourcefulness. ECIS would like to thank the College Board for sponsoring Kyung Hee Kim's participation at this conference.

This session will provide a forum to continue the discussion from Apples and Oranges 1.0 presented at ECIS in 2011. The programs offered by the College Board (AP) and the International Baccalaureate Organisation (IBO) both seek to offer students in secondary schools a transformative educational experience that prepares them to have the knowledge and skills necessary to complete their higher education and to be global citizens. At a practical level, however, how do the programs align and differ in international schools? Major updates and innovations for each program will be shared, followed by perspectives about the implementation of both programs from administrative leaders in ECIS schools. An opportunity for questions and discussion will be provided.

DEVELOPING SCHOOL-BASED LANGUAGE POLICIES: THE INTERSECTING ROLES OF RESEARCH EVIDENCE, IDEOLOGY AND LEADERSHIP Every school has a language policy. In some cases, unfortunately, this policy is unarticulated, incoherent, and ineffective in promoting student achievement. The session will address strategies for articulating a coherent and dynamic language policy with a focus on the policy as a process rather than as a product. The rationale for developing school-based language policies derives from the fact that students’ knowledge about how academic language works is deepened when teachers integrate language and literacy goals across languages (e.g., ESL, mother tongues and additional languages) and across the curriculum. ECIS would like to thank the ISL Group for sponsoring Jim Cummins participation at this conference. Jim Cummins, Professor and Canada Research Chair, University of Toronto, Canada

In this workshop we will explore how we can identify and then teach core concepts related to the social mind which can be then utilized on the playground, when socially regulating in the classroom and within the core curriculum helping to promote more efficient teaching practices.

THE IB LEARNER PROFILE IN A CHANGING WORLD

3-18

“With the development of a continuum of international education, it is intended that teachers, students and parents will be able to draw confidently on a recognizable common educational framework, a consistent structure of aims and values and an overarching concept of how to develop international-mindedness. The IB learner profile will be at the heart of this common framework, as a clear and concise statement of the aims and values of the IB, and an embodiment of what the IB means by “international-mindedness”. (IB learner profile booklet) Like all aspects of the IB’s curriculum frameworks the learner profile is subject to review by the IB community. Due to its importance to IB World Schools this review claims a special importance and calls for high levels of participation and widely-dispersed, creative, critical reflection. In this seminar style session participants will engage in dialogue, inquiry and reflection on the IB learner profile and cultural agility.

LEARNING TO LEARN: HOW TEACHERS CAN FACILITATE STUDENT METACOGNITION

3-18

Many schools claim to teach students to learn how to learn. In our experience, only a few do so deliberately and explicitly. This is despite the fact that recent research points to the development of student metacognition as perhaps the most powerful influence on student achievement and lifelong learning. In this highly interactive workshop, participants will come to understand what metacognition means in a classroom setting (not the same as teaching study skills). Participants will analyze their assumptions about student learning, explore various models of metacognition and become more reflective about their own thinking and learning. Our experience has shown that teachers who are metacognitive and reflective are more likely to develop these habits of mind in their students. Embedded within the workshop will be numerous research-based strategies that promote structured reflection and metacognition. This workshop is suitable for teachers, principals, and curriculum coordinators, Pre-K through Grade 12.

HAVING FUN DANCING IN SCHOOL Children Dances and Movement Activities in Kindergarten and Primary School This session proposes an easy, effective way to use folk dances for children in the music lessons. The session will focus primarily on younger learners. Since younger children learn through their bodies, movement is an important part in the primary music education. Folk dances are an excellent tool to develop or improve specific music skills. They are a unique tool to develop social skills and to create a good and positive atmosphere in the classroom as well. Dances and movement games for children don’t require specific dance abilities so also music teachers that are not experts in movement can easily learn them.

IMPROVING ASSESSMENT: DEVELOPING A SCHOOLWIDE SYSTEM

In most schools there is good assessment happening in individual classrooms but there is little consistency between teachers or across grade levels – a state of ‘assessment anarchy’ is typical. Research shows that a common characteristic of the most successful organisations is a systematic and consistent approach to whatever they are doing. This session will provide a protocol for taking a more systematic approach to assessment schoolwide, to improve both efficiency and effectiveness. We have used this protocol with many schools across a range of curricular models with very positive results: more focused teaching; better feedback for student learning; more meaningful information for parents; better vertical and horizontal monitoring of student achievement.
