Description

"Learning to participate in interconnected, complex and diverse societies is no longer a luxury but a pressing necessity.”

Andreas Schleicher, OECD

In 2018, for the first time ever, the PISA test included global competences in its metrics for the comparative success of education systems around the world. How can schools prepare students not just to perform well in the PISA test, but to play a fulfilling and confident role in the ever-changing world of the 21st century?

In this workshop, we will explore how the use of resources from UNICEF and the World’s Largest Lesson can be used to engage students from all year groups with the Sustainable Development Goals. We will also discover if we are smarter than chimpanzees and why this links to having a positive attitude towards global citizenship.

This session will be led by David Robinson, Global Campus Leader and Teacher of English and Humanities at Nord Anglia International Hong Kong. After completing his Master’s degree in English and Politics from the University of Glasgow, David embarked upon a global education career that has taken him from rural Japan to urban Australia. However, the bulk of his career has been spent working in China in both local and international schools in Sichuan, Beijing and, for the past five years, Hong Kong. In addition to a post-graduate diploma in education from the University of Strathclyde, David recently completed an executive Masters in International Education from Kings College London.
