IBSA Webinar: Shifting Pedagogy

October 13, 2020 - October 13, 2020

Open only to IB Schools Australasia Member Schools, our 2020 IBSA Webinars bring the expertise of Louka Parry to our schools.


About this Event

If COVID-19 has taught us anything, it’s that our industries are shifting faster than ever before.

This moment calls for a renewed focus on emerging pedagogies that support the development of skillsets and mindset that support young people to adapt into their future. Mental health, attentional capacity, and exponential technologies all are contributing to this shift and increasing the learning happening through blended, hybrid or fully virtual learning environments. In an information saturated world with much digital consumption, how might we support and empower our learners to be creators rather than consumers, and deploy powerful pedagogies with and through technology?

Join educator and entrepreneur, Louka Parry, to dive into how might we indeed design and deliver learning in novel, playful, and engaging ways. Perhaps by continuing to evolve our pedagogical approaches and deploying entrepreneurial mindsets as new technologies become mainstreamed we can leverage our own creativity as educators to support the development of the key human capabilities to help our learners become future-fit.
