The  

Adolescent  

Success  

management  

committee  could not be more excited about this conference!  We are changing the program and have broken out of the box to bring you 3 conferences in 1:

  1. A Principals and Aspiring Leaders conference
  2. A Teachers conference
  3. A middle years Student conference

Yes that it correct, we are inviting Students to join us at the conference on Friday 25th August for a one day keynote and concurrent workshop conference designed specifically for middle years students.  We have kept the price of the student registration very low in the hope that schools will find ways to send their students to this hands on and inspiring learning event, where they get to mix with the teacher and leaders and also break into their own sessions where they will learn things like robotics, 3D printing, theatre sports and dance, visual arts and leadership skills.  They will get to choose their own sessions and be delegates for the day.

The Principals conference is designed specifically for school leaders and aspiring leaders and all sessions will be based on leadership skills and qualities including:

  • Leading teaching and learning
  • Developing self and others
  • Leading improvement, innovation and change
  • Leading the management of the school
  • Engaging and working in the community

 

And finally, as we’ve always delivered a high quality Teachers conference for teachers of ALL subjects and ALL year levels of middle school.  You will learn practical approaches to engaging young adolescents in learning and discover why STEAM is so important to the middle years curriculum.  No matter what subject you teach, this conference is vital to the ongoing learning of all middle years teachers.

We warmly,  invite you to join us at The Brisbane Convention and Exhibition Centre

we  

discuss,  

create  

 and  

work with STEAM to engage our young adolescents.

The  

2017

collaborative  

and

for

Conference Strands:

1. Discover

Discovery is key to engaging young adolescents, they need to feel a sense of wonder and excitement about what they are learning.  Where can we find opportunities for students to discover new ideas, new thinking and new aspects of themselves?

 

 

2. Design

What aspects of design can we include in the curriculum for young adolescents?  Where does the design process and the maker movement belong in the quest for engagement of young adolescents? How do we design schools which cater for the specific needs of young adolescents both systematically and physically and how do we lead the design of a modern learning environment and curriculum?

 

 

3. Drive

How do we excite play, passion and purpose in our young people?  When young people demonstrate drive they are engaged and in the flow of learning, how do our classrooms and schools encourage this?  What drives good leaders and how do we learn the skills to drive an effective middle school into the future of learning?
