Costs: 6,000 baht (includes transfers between Boat Lagoon Hotel or Boarding to and from BISP, lunches, BBQ and Gala function)

• For schools already registered – Unless we hear from you by Monday 27th April 2015, FOBISIA will automatically refund the difference between the two conference fee.

Key note speaker

Our key note speaker has not changed. It will continue to be delivered by ‘Crossroads’ founder, David and Sally Begbie. Crossroad is an organisation of outstanding repute in the field of Corporate Social Responsibility. It is dedicated to ‘connecting people in a broken world’, by acting as a crossroads for those who need help and those who can help.

David will also lead the ‘Struggle for Survival Simulations’ where participants try to earn enough to survive and pay for rent, food, sanitation, medical needs and education. This simulates the pressures felt by many globally, and explores ways to break the web of poverty.

Additional workshop

We will continue to explore the themes of Technology, Career Advancement, Global Sustainability Issues, Primary JAWS, Secondary JAWS and Whole School JAWS. We have received a significant number of excellent application and look forward to receiving more. All applications for workshop leaders will close on Friday 29th May 2015. Successful workshop leaders will be informed in June.

The workshop leader application form can be found here.

Given the relatively low price of the conference, it is now not possible to offer conference fee discount for workshop leaders.

Sign 4 Learning Workshop, 23rd April 2015, Bangkok Patana

Sign 4 Learning Workshop
Thursday 23rd April
Bangkok Patana

Please find here details of a CPD opportunity Sign 4 Learning Workshop which will take place at Bangkok Patana School on Thursday 23rd April.

Sign 4 Learning is a unique initiative that successfully uses signs taken from British Sign Language to increase targeted vocabulary in hearing children. The action of the sign, coupled with the spoken word is a powerful tool that helps children to remember new vocabulary and concepts effectively. Children learn best when they are actively engaged and with Sign 4 Learning they are not just hearing and saying new words, but doing them as well. Data from Sign 4 Learning shows significant and measurable progress towards the Early Learning Foundation Stage (EYFS) goals following an 8 week intervention using Sign 4 Stories and Sign 4 Feelings and Behaviour.

More information, including the research data is available from: http://www.sign4learning.co.uk
