Workshop Overview
There is now a large and growing evidence base that helping teachers develop their use of minute-to-minute and day-by-day assessment is one of, if not the most powerful way to improve student learning. However, adopting formative assessment, or assessment for learning as it is sometimes called, involves far more than adding a few “quick fixes” to teachers’ classroom repertoires. It involves a fundamental shift in focus, from what the teacher is putting in to the process to what the students are getting out of it.

In this interactive two-day workshop, participants will learn:
Why we need to increase educational achievement, what’s been tried, and why it hasn’t worked;
Why formative assessment needs to be the priority for every school;
What formative assessment is (and isn’t);
Practical techniques for implementing formative assessment; and
How to sustain the development of formative assessment with teacher learning communities.

Workshop Facilitator

Dr. Dylan Wiliam is Emeritus Professor of Educational Assessment at the Institute of Education, University of London where, from 2006 to 2010 he was its Deputy Director. In a varied career, he has taught in urban public schools, directed a large-scale testing program, and served a number of roles in university administration, including Dean of a School of Education.

His recent work has focused on the use of assessment to support learning . He was the co-author, with Paul Black, of a major review of the research evidence on formative assessment published in 1998 and has subsequently worked with many groups of teachers, in both the UK and the USA, on developing formative assessment practices.

Workshop Objectives
Participants will learn what kinds of formative assessment have the biggest impact on student achievement and how they can be implemented in every classroom.

Specifically, participants will:
Understand why a focus on minute to minute and day by day assessment for learning must be a priority for every school.
Learn about the five key strategies of assessment for learning, together with thirty practical techniques that teachers can use in their classrooms
Understand how to support colleagues in developing their practice of assessment for learning.
Methodology
The workshop will use a variety of techniques including formal presentation, small group discussion, and a variety of activities that model the use of effective formative assessment in the classroom.

Workshop Agenda
Day 1
Session 1: Formative assessment: why, what and how
Session 2: Sharing learning intentions
Session 3: Eliciting evidence

Day 2
Session 1: Feedback
Session 2: Activating students—as learning resources and as owners of their learning

Student Data Conference

Getting the most out of your data:
An interactive workshop to support schools in maximising the value they gain from the use of assessments.

Bromsgrove International School Thailand, Bangkok
Saturday 14th March
Following on from the FOBISIA Student Data Conference, GL Education is offering an interactive workshop to support schools who wish to deepen their understanding of the practical application of data to support the concepts discussed during the conference.

Aims of the session:
 Understand what a cognitive abilities test measures, and how the data can be used across different roles within a school (SMT, middle leaders, classroom teachers)
 Review standardised attainment assessments and how these can measure progress and provide feedback to learners
 Explore how attainment and aptitude data can be used together to identify underachievement, informing individual learning and whole school policies
 Provide an opportunity to share good practice of assessment policies across international schools.
The workshop will be structured around the use and comparison of data from the following GL Education assessments:
 Cognitive Abilities Test 4 (CAT4)
 Progress in Maths (PIM)
 Progress in English (PIE)
 New Group Reading Test (NGRT)

Attendees are asked to bring a class set of student data for each of these assessments to work with during the session. Schools that do not currently use some or all of these assessments will be provided with a complimentary set of tests, with which to assess a single class of their students. These tests will need to be administered in February, prior to the workshop; enabling delegates to fully participate in the hands-on analysis.
Delegates new to GL Education’s assessments will also be invited to a short introductory webinar prior to running the tests so that they are familiar with the administration process and can carry out the trial in an accurate and effective manner.

The workshop is aimed at:
 Colleagues who are already using the assessments who wish to broaden and deepen their understanding and use of the data
 Colleagues not currently using the assessments who wish to explore the potential benefits of the data in the context of their school and students

Using Puppetry in the Classroom, Saturday 17th January 2015, Patana, Bangkok

Using Puppetry in the Classroom
Saturday 17th January 2015
Bangkok Patana
Registration 08:30, Session 09:00 – 16:00
Cost: 6,000 Baht

A great opportunity for teachers from Primary and Secondary age range to add to their portfolio using puppetry to enhance learning.

Puppetry is not only a beautiful skill to master in its own artistic right but it can also be used as a valuable and exciting tool for exploring many areas of the curriculum. This day of puppetry play will begin by exploring the basic principles of puppeteering through the world of object manipulation, exploring the characters and creatures that appear when you believe that anything can be brought to life through imagination and a few tricks of the puppetry trade. We will then transfer these skills into a human form puppet which we will create with our own fair hands using a simple, yet hugely versatile, technique. Once we have created our new friends we will look at they myriad of opportunities and areas of learning which come when we explore scale; building small worlds and friendly giants we will learn to puppeteer as an individual and as an ensemble. In amongst all the fun we will take time to discuss and share the learning opportunities, cross curricular pathways and personal and social skills which can be developed in your classroom, with your students, through the wonderful world of puppets!
Louise Clark has an MA in Drama and Theatre Education and a BA in Theatre and Performance both from the University of Warwick and has specialised in Early Years arts education since her MA dissertation research into The Place of the Drama Specialist in the Early Years. She works as a performer and theatre practitioner, specialising in theatre education and children’s theatre. She believes high quality theatre experiences can play a pivotal role in the education and development of young children. This belief keeps her busy as an artist for Creative Partnerships and as a drama consultant for LEAs, developing drama as a whole school approach to learning and as a teaching tool within the classroom.

Louise worked as a performer in children’s theatre for several years touring with Tell Tale Hearts, for whom she is now Associate Director. She also works as an education associate for a number of well-known theatre companies including Horse and Bamboo Theatre Company, Oldham Coliseum, Manchester Library Theatre, Doncaster Community Arts (darts) and RSC. Louise is also a member of staff for the International Schools Theatre Association (ISTA) and works closely with Calderdale Theatre School, Halifax.

A great opportunity for teachers from Primary and Secondary age range to add to their portfolio using puppetry to enhance learning.

Course Leader
Dr. Suzi Kagan
Founder and Director of the Israeli Association for Play Therapy

Dr.Suzi Kagan, is the Founder and Director of the Israeli Association for Play Therapy. She is a Licensed Professional Counselor (LPC), a National Certified Counselor (NCC), Child’s Life Specialist (CLS) and a Registered Play Therapist Supervisor (RPT -S).

Play is universal and natural activity of childhood. Between the ages 2-11 most children use play in a symbolic way to deal with their direct and indirect experiences. By using play children may be able to organize their lives and practice some control over their everyday issues.

In the USA and Europe, play therapy has been applied as part of responsive services within comprehensive, developmental elementary and school counseling programs to facilitate self-esteem, increase self-efficacy, and decrease maladaptive behaviors to remove barriers for
success in social and emotional spheres.

Workshop Aim
This 2 days course will offer training to preschool and elementary school teachers, to elementary school counselors, to classroom assistants, and others working with children in expanding their knowledge and skill in non-directive play therapy.

Methodology
Participants’ learning will be facilitated through a didactic presentation,interactive discussions, and some role playing.

Workshop Overview
Educator Parker Palmer speaks of the difficulties we face as teachers in the classroom and he notes that failing to reveal ourselves as authentic persons, instead of only as information disseminators, is at the root of the problem. Increasing professional responsibilities, student needs, and student discipline issues leave little time for reflection about our teaching or the inner-self and, even when some time exists, fear of revealing who we are may keep us from being “authentic” in the classroom.

Workshop Goals
This workshop will offer educators an opportunity to reflect on the following:
Their classroom practices
Interactions with students, colleagues, and administrators
Needs for peace of mind in order to be more effective in the school environment.
In addition, educators will explore how finding their own peace and centeredness can flow outward to assist in the psychological, emotional, and social development of their students.

The facilitator envisions a collaborative, safe environment for exploring these topics and identifying implementation stages that will allow immediate, practical application.

Methodology
The two-day session will consist of lecture, audio-visual material, small group, and open group discussion.

Dr. Hendrix is a university professor with over 30 years experience as a teacher in conjunction with administrative experience. She is an instructional communication scholar with a broad teaching range including argumentation, interpersonal and intercultural communication, and qualitative research methods.

Modern Language Workshops, 26th-28th February 2015, Bangkok

Modern Language Workshops
A Series of Workshops for Language Teachers

Facilitated by:John Connor

Dates:(February 2015)
Workshop 1 – Feb 26
Workshop 2 – Feb 27
Workshop 3 – Feb 28

Venue:Exact venue to be confirmed: Bangkok, Thailand

Overview
This series of workshops is designed to address three major issues surrounding teaching and learning in modern languages, namely:
how to deliver lessons that stimulate, engage and motivate pupils, instilling a curiosity about and love for language learning.
how to develop the skills, competences, attitudes and attributes of successful language learning from an early age, and
how to create “meanings that matter” in a language curriculum that has historically been driven by a range of fairly sterile topics
There will be a mixture of input, group discussion and activities, and delegates will be able to take from the workshop not only ready-to-use resources, but also the knowledge to enable them to plan and devise a curriculum which will establish a secure foundation for future language learning.

Workshop Facilitator
A double graduate in Spanish and Latin American Studies, John Connor taught languages in inner city comprehensive schools in the North East of England and the Midlands, holding Head of Faculty posts before serving for 3 years as Adviser for Languages to a local authority.

He has worked as a commissioning editor for a publishing house, and was a Team Inspector with OFSTED and an Assessor on the Advanced Skills Teacher programme for the Department for Education. He has also worked as a senior examiner with two major awarding bodies.

Since 1997 he has worked freelance, writing teaching materials in French and Spanish at all levels, running training seminars for language teachers, directing in-house staff development and conducting teaching and learning quality audits for modern language departments and schools across the UK, the Channel Islands, Europe, the Middle East and the Far East.

As a consultant he helped several local authorities develop their Primary Languages programmes, conducting methodology training and language up-skilling sessions for non-specialist primary teachers.

Workshop 1 – Outstanding MFL Lessons

This workshop will:
Consider the characteristics of outstanding MFL lessons in terms of planning, expectations, teacher expertise and assessment.
Examine how to develop higher order thinking skills in language lessons and consider the role of Assessment for Learning in improving pupil outcomes.
Explore how the use of new technologies can enhance language learning.

Workshop 2 – Teaching Languages to Younger Learners

This workshop is concerned with laying the foundations of good habits of language learning which will stand pupils in good stead as they advance through their years of schooling. It is based on the concepts of the Framework for Languages produced in the UK for 7-11 year old pupils, and will examine the 5 strands of the Framework, namely:
Oracy (O)
Literacy (L)
Intercultural Understanding (IU)
Knowledge About Language (KAL)
Language Learning Strategies (LLS)
It will also consider practical approaches to key issues such as developing the phoneme/ grapheme relationship, active learning, integrating languages into the wider curriculum, assessing pupils’ progress and the transition to the next phase of education.

Workshop 3 – Content and Language Integrated Learning (CLIL)

CLIL is an approach or method which integrates the teaching of content from a curriculum subject with the teaching of a non-native language.

It’s considered increasingly important in our global society because knowledge of another language helps learners to develop skills in their first language and also help them to develop skills to communicate ideas about science, arts and technologies to people around the world.

In a CLIL classroom, the curricular subject and new language skills are taught together; and thinking and learning skills are integrated too. CLIL teachers can be subject teachers, language teachers or classroom assistants. Different teachers have different goals that can be achieved through a high degree of cooperation, among them: language teachers need to learn more about subject content and subject teachers need to learn about the language needed for their subjects.

The workshop will start by exploring the core features of CLIL methodology, and then go to examine lesson planning, a framework for CLIL lessons, how to exploit texts, deal with vocabulary, check understanding, correct errors and develop presentation skills in a climate of constructive critique.

Delegates will take from the workshop not only examples of ready-to-use resources, but also the skills and knowledge to begin framing a CLIL-based approach to their own lessons.

Dr. Ron Ritchhart

Date/Time
May 1 – 2, 2015
9.00 am – 3.30 pm

Venue
Exact venue to be confirmed
Chiangmai, Thailand

Background
The Cultures of Thinking Project is a global initiative under the direction of Dr. Ron Ritchhart, a Principal Investigator and Senior Research Associate at Project Zero, Harvard Graduate School of Education.

Since 2000, the CoT Project has worked with hundreds of public, independent, and international schools and museums across North America, Australia, Asia, and Europe to help transform schools, classrooms, and museums into places where thinking is valued, visible and actively promoted as part of the regular day-to-day experience of all group members.

Three books have documented this work and are useful resources for those interested in developing a culture of thinking:
– Intellectual Character (Ritchhart, 2002)
– Making Thinking Visible (Ritchhart, Church & Morrison, 2011), and
– Creating Cultures of Thinking (Ritchhart, 2015).

Workshop Facilitator

Dr. Ron Ritchhart is a Senior Research Associate at Harvard Project Zero and Fellow at the University of Melbourne, Australia. His current research focuses on developing intellectual character, making thinking visible, and enhancing school and classroom culture. Ron’s research and writings, particularly his theory of Intellectual Character and his framework for understanding group culture, have informed the work of schools, museums, and organizations throughout the world.

Ron’s widely acclaimed book, Making Thinking Visible, co-authored with Mark Church and Karin Morrison, has popularized the use of thinking routines worldwide. Ron currently directs the Worldwide Cultures of Thinking Project aimed at facilitating effective learning in classrooms, schools, and organizations. Bialik College in Melbourne Australia, Oakland County Schools in Michigan, and the International School of Amsterdam have been key partners in Ron’s research.

This combination of private, public, and international schools have served as the prime sites for developing the core practices and school-based evidence that surround Cultures of Thinking. Ron’s forthcoming book, Creating Cultures of Thinking, couples the real classroom practice of teachers with whom he has worked with recent educational research on learning to illuminate how schools and classrooms can be transformed to develop the learners and thinkers we need for the 21st century

Workshop Overview
The CoT initiative considers education to be a social and cultural endeavor whose goal is the development of both the individual and the group as effective learners and thinkers able to engage with and adapt to a changing world. Within this context the most important assessment question we can ask ourselves as educators is: Who are our students becoming as thinkers and learners as a result of their time with us?

Learning is a product of thinking. If we want our students to learn well and develop understanding, we must create cultures of thinking that actively engage students in thinking on an ongoing basis.

However, this isn’t always an easy task. Schools and classrooms are not always set up to encourage thinking. Furthermore, by its very nature, thinking is a rather invisible and elusive process. How do we as teachers promote students’ thinking, recognize it when it occurs, and make thoughtfulness permeate our classrooms?

To create a culture of thinking, educators must work together to create a school environment whose structure and purpose actively encourage a high level of student thinking, both individually as well as collectively, and where the thinking of all group members is regularly promoted, valued, made visible, and pushed further as a part of the ongoing, shared enterprise of the group.

During the workshop, we will focus on the practical and concrete ways educators can create a culture of thinking in their schools and classrooms, foster the kinds of thinking opportunities that lead to deep understanding of content, and how to look for evidence of student thinking and understanding. Participants will be introduced to a variety of thinking routines: what they are and how they can be used to create more thoughtful classrooms.

We will explore such questions as:
• What is a culture of thinking?
• How can the cultural forces that exist in each classroom support and further develop a culture of thinking?
• How can educators use thinking routines to structure, scaffold, and support students’ thinking?

Potential Audience
This interactive workshop is designed for teachers, administrators and school leaders across grade levels and subject areas who are interested in supporting and developing their students as thinkers and learners.

Workshop Objectives
Participants will learn:
• The eight keys to the development of group culture and how they can harness those to create a culture of thinking in their school or classroom.
• How to use thinking routines in to support students learning, to foster thinkingdispositions, and to make thinking visible.
• How to foster effective classroom discussions through the use of language, questioning, and discourse.
