أهداف التنمية المستدامة


Fatima Abu Najem

شاع مؤخّراً الحديث عن أهداف التّنمية المستدامة (SDGs) بشكل كبير، فلا تكاد تخلو خطط المؤسّسات الكبرى أو المنظّمات العالميّة من ذكر هذه الأهداف، كما تسعى الجهات الحكوميّة في دول العالم المختلفة إلى ربط خططها المستقبليّة بهذه الأهداف، فما المقصود بالتّنمية المستدامة وما أهدافها؟ وكيف نشأت؟وما دورها في في بناء الخطط والأهداف؟ وكيف ترتبط هذه الأهداف بالتّربية والتّعليم؟ وهل يمكننا نحن كمعلمين أن ندرجها في خططنا وممارستنا اليوميّة. هذا ما سوف نسلّط عليه الضّوء خلال لقائنا، إضافة إلى مشاركة عدد من الأمثلة العمليّة وممارسات من أرض الواقع الّتي توضّح دورنا كشركاء أساسيين في تحقيق (أهداف التنمية المستدامة)

Teaspoons of Change


d’Arcy Lunn

Teaspoons of Change are personal choices, decisions and actions that have a positive impact on people and the planet creating positive change. It tries to give a name and meaning to those seemingly unimportant actions that don’t feel significant at a personal level. I often say “be the change you CAN’T see in the world” because it is hard to measure that plastic bottle of water you didn’t buy or the coal saved by turning off the AC for sleeping at night.

In this session we will go through some of the tips and tricks to bring big concepts like global citizenship, the SDGs, sustainability and more, to a personal and practical context so we can feel we are the change in our own lives and the world.

Back to School

Welcome back to school

Maike Silver

Following a difficult year shaped by Covid19 school- reopening needs to be carefully planned. This welcome back to school session will focus on 3 key questions.
  • What team-building activities can help set the tone for our leadership team and/or teachers?
  • How might do we engage leadership/ teachers in school-wide goal setting?
  • Whether we open face-to-face or online, how do we address the well-being of our students and teachers?

Getting “Worldwise”: Courageous Teaching to Transform our Classrooms for a Post-COVID World

Carla Marschall

During this time of social and ecological uncertainty, how can education be a humanizing force that prepares students as knowledgeable, compassionate, and engaged local and global citizens? As we begin our school year, this webinar explores ways that we can support our students in meeting the challenges and opportunities of living in our complex, interconnected post-COVID world. In particular, it will consider the role of learning aimed to nurture students’ global competence, or knowledge, skills, conceptual understandings, and dispositions needed to understand and act on complex human and environmental challenges. This is supported in democratic classrooms where students have ownership over their learning, authentic opportunities for decision making, and high levels of agency. As we start the year, let’s ensure our diverse students are seen, inspired, and empowered to create positive change in their communities and beyond.

Back To School in the Early Years-Laying The Foundations

Lynn White

The start of the school year is a great time to reflect on the community and culture we wish to create for our youngest learners. This session will explore establishing relationships and building a sense of community, beginning of year procedures/systems and setting up a learning environment conducive to inquiry. This will be very much a sharing session with participants being asked to share their thoughts, ideas and experiences at key points so we have great take-aways to begin the year with!

FENG SHUI: a smooth start for important results in your classroom

Cristiano Falconi

In this webinar we will know the basics of feng shui and how to design your classroom. We will share info about: colors, setting and general feng shui tips.


Creating a Classroom Culture of Curiosity: Surefire Techniques for Engagement & Deeper Learning

Dr. Wendy L. Ostroff

We learn by engaging and exploring, asking questions and testing out answers. Yet our classrooms are not always places where such curiosity is encouraged and supported. In this webinar, Dr. Wendy Ostroff will help participants plan out a student-centered environment that allows for openness and surprise, where inquiry guides authentic learning. We will consider current cognitive science and neuroscience findings showing that curiosity releases dopamine, and activates the hippocampus (remembering) and prefrontal cortex (executive functions); sustains intrinsic motivation; and showing that extra curious children exhibit related cognitive gains.

We will discuss ways to cultivate curiosity for diverse learners, including sharing power via emergent curriculum; modeling student curiosity through exploration, novelty, and play; for allowing autonomy, intrinsic motivation, imagination and creativity within structure; for supporting questioning and critical thinking; and for bolstering experimentation and problem solving by deliberately opening up time and space. This workshop will challenge the notion of a hierarchical classroom, and instead generate ideas to harness the powerful drive in all learners—the drive to know, understand, and experience the world in a meaningful way.




Different Perspectives on Agency

Re-Imagining Personalized Learning to Empower Learner Agency

Barbara Bray

We are born curious and learn every day. Yet, in school and through our lives, we may be told what and how we need to learn. This session will invite you to ask who owns the learning and why we need to end teaching to the average. Barbara will walk you through Universal Design for Learning, why everyone can build their one personal learning backpack, and review how to address teaching and learning approaches so learners have a voice and choice Join Barbara to bring back curiosity and develop learner agency by reimagining new ways of teaching and learning in uncertain times.

Developing Relationships in Your Classroom to Increase Agency



Dr. Ilene Winokur

Developing Relationships in Your Classroom to Increase Agency and Improve Outcomes

Why do we need Belonging before Bloom? How can creating relationships with students increase student agency and improve outcomes? Feeling like you belong is relational and increases self-esteem, self-confidence, and self-efficacy which transfers into agency. When teachers value students for their uniqueness by getting to know them, listening to their stories, helping them create relationships with them and their peers they are motivated to participate, take risks with their learning, and improve their learning outcomes. This presentation will share different ways to ensure a safe, accepting, inclusive environment for all students to feel a sense of belonging.

Agency through the culture of thinking in early years



Samah Abou Ghazal


This webinar will shed the light on empowering young learners to become active agents and thinkers, where they lead their own learning, and develop thier thinking dispositions. In the webinar, we will define what is agency and see the impacts of raising autonomous learners on the learning process. Establishing an environment conducive to thinking and learning will give the children a voice with what and how they want to learn.
We will look at a documentation of a unit that will help us see agency in action.
Fostering a culture of thinking will promote a sense of agency within the classroom environment where thinking becomes the core of learning, and the teacher becomes a consultant in the process.

Teacher agency


Karen Crooke

Teacher Agency is a redundant term as far as I am concerned. Developing and building an agentic environment that supports all learners is the key to educational change. In the time we have, I hope to share some thoughts and wonderings about the alignment of agency to pedagogy and accountability, the “collective good” and teacher wellbeing. I have asked four members of our team to share their experiences and I would like to finish off with some misconceptions – without putting a damper on it’s importance and relevance to 21st C education.

Becoming Agentic Educators


Lu Gerlach

As educators, we are making non-stop decisions throughout the day about what and how ideas are shared. In this workshop, we are going to explore how to share that decision-making process with our students, so they can develop their agentic thinking. This is a process and it requires us to be intentional and release some of the control. Are you ready to become an agentic educator?



Bilingual Education

Learning Through Language: The Beauty of Language Immersion Schools


Maria Abad & Bodo Heiliger

Children constantly work to understand the world around them and also have those in the world around them understand them. This desire to make sense of themselves and the world provides the foundation for children to be immersed in an additional language, not only to become fluent in another language but to develop cultural fluency. At The International School in Portland, Oregon, USA, children are fully immersed in one of the three languages of instruction, Mandarin, Japanese, and Spanish. In this session, participants will engage in a case study of The International School, where they will engage in learning the structures, practices, and policies to ensure that children experience powerful concept-driven and play-based learning environments across all classrooms.


Planifier une unité de recherche en contexte bilingue

Carine Lagacé

Nous explorerons les différents éléments à considérer lors de la planification initiale, la collaboration avec les autres enseignants impliqués et nous terminerons avec un exemple concret d’une activité d’apprentissage. Les participants seront invités à poser des questions et à partager leurs propres stratégies.


Du Iz Tak? Translanguaging and Symbolic Learning


Josh Blue

Du Iz Tak? Manazoot. Translanguaging. Meaning making is at the heart of self-expression, self-understanding and communication. Delving into the concept of ‘Translanguaging’, we will explore how every has voice, choice and ownership and the ability to express themselves, regardless if they are familiar with the language of instruction or not. Using picture books, research and YOU, we are going to redefine ‘language’ by exploring the power of using what we know and who we are to communicate and express ourselves. We will co-construct a model of translanguaging and look specifically at way to embed key practices in your classroom.

Learning Together through Inquiry

Provocation – a doorway to Inquiry

Sonia Singh

Provocations are found at the start of an inquiry to provoke thoughts, ideas and ignite curiosity. Provocations allow teachers to gain an insight into what the students know and where to take the learning experiences into the future. Good engaging provocations spark a lot of learning opportunities leading to engaging questions, powerful discussions and paving a way to inquire further. As a true PYP educator, reflecting and refining our provocations is something that is critical to developing student’s learning and sparking curiosity. What are some of your favourite provocations? I will be sharing some of my favourite ones with you that led to questions and engagements for deeper learning.


تقنية صياغة الأسئلة

Rawan Merie

إن القدرة على طرح الأسئلة والإجابة عليها أمر أساسي في عملية التعلم. حيث أن مهارة طرح الأسئلة تعتبر وسيلة رئيسة نكشف من خلالها معرفة الطلبة السابقة، ونحدد الثغرات في الفهم والمعرفة لديهم. هذه التقنية بسيطة ويمكن تطبيقها على جميع الفئات العمرية من الروضة وحتى الصف الثاني عشر، لما لها من تأثير قوي في اكتساب الطلبة لمهارات التفكير العليا والفهم والتعلم مدى الحياة.


From Guided to Student-led inquiry

Sally Saaid

In this session we will focus on the different ways inquiry can look in a classroom; from teacher guided inquiry to student-led inquiry. Focusing on the use of ATLs, and Learner Profiles we will dive deeper into the different ways inquiry groups can be formed and supported in a PYP classroom.

Leading in a Culture of Inquiry

Tricia Herbert

We will explore the role of formal and informal leaders in growing and nurturing a culture of inquiry throughout the school community.

Inquiry in Early years

Katherine M Patton

The early years ~ it is where inquiry is at the heart of the educational experience. Children are natural inquirers and creating a classroom that promotes ‘wondering’ allows for children to continue to explore the world around them with their curious minds. In this session, we will use some guiding questions to explore inquiry in the early years. What does inquiry in the early years look like? Why is it important? and How can it be encouraged?



The Big Picture – Inquiry Through Art


Lise Farquhar

“But I can’t draw.”

As an Art teacher I hear this all the time, say it all the time
and think about it all the time, which fuels my fire. Art is not about drawing. It is the ultimate opportunity for students to inquire deeply into their learning from across the curriculum and life. Find out and share ways to shift the focus from techniques and terminology to context and concepts.
