The Adolescent Success management committee believe young adolescents have the right to learn in an environment which helps them become the innovators and creators of the future. As we embark on a new era of education with the use of more technologies, collaborative and virtual learning, we are inspired by the young adolescents before us. We are inspired by their diversity, their adaptability, their ability to learn despite obstacles and their willingness to share their ideas and thoughts with educators. We are inspired by the potential they bring to school and we are hopeful of being the best educators, mentors and leaders we can be for the young adolescents in Australia, New Zealand and beyond.
We invite you to join us at The Australian International School as we discuss, create and work towards innovating education for young adolescents. The 2016 conference is a dynamic, collaborative and inspiring event for every educator who cares about young adolescents.
