Conference session: Constructing meaning together through language learning
Date and time:
Check the conference schedule here
Description: Learning together is inherently linked to learning language, communicating and developing literacy. Students need literacy as a basic foundation to be successful global citizens in a world that is increasingly technological, multimodal and multilingual. Educators need to be confident in their pedagogical approach to support students as they develop their language skills to create new ways of constructing meaning through language, and this from the very early years on.
Participants will explore ways in which the latest research on language and literacy in IB programmes can inform how students develop literacy skills through specific language interventions but also across the curriculum. Practical ideas and suggestions will be proposed to explore the PYP as a useful framework to implement classroom practices that are inclusive of students’ complex language profiles and that promote creative, flexible and innovative understandings of what it might mean to be literate both now and into the future.

Conference session: Playful inquiry in early learning communities: A provocation
Date and time: Check the conference schedule here
Description: Are y­­ou are interested in building a learning community through play? In this session, we will explore the role of play in inquiry and as an approach to creating learning communities in your setting. We will share theories and research that support playful engagements for life-long learning.  Together we will reflect on the image of child, image of teacher, relationships and learning communities in your schools.
Take away for participants:
