Language in Which You Will Present: English


Target Audience(s): School Leaders,Teachers and Students


Short Session Description (one line): This is an opportunity for educators to learn alongside two international school students who want to impact change.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):  

Gabi Campos and Nik Hildebrandt are two 11th grade students at Graded in Sao Paulo, Brazil who are passionate about overhauling education. Their call to action for school leaders, teachers, students and parents is urgent. Their vision emcompasses a more constructivist approach where students dive into deeper learning and where failure is promoted as a motivator for learning and feedback is given to students more qualitatively rather than quantitatively. They also have ideas for curricular changes that will provide students with more individual choice in areas of study that are more relevant and interconnected with today’s world.


Participants will be able to wrestle with these ideas and share their stories about how their schools are handling these conversations and actions for change. Gabi and Nik will challenge all participants  to take action for the benefit of our students. Hopefully this inspiring message will lead to immediate action.

Blair,

Love the idea - great to get some student voices in during these conferences... will look forward to tuning in... any plans to incorporate World Cup & Olympics into the classroom at your school?  Great opportunity for us up here in US to shift focus on Brazil.

Hi Greg,

I'm pleased that Gabi's and Nik' voices will be heard. We're working on ways to spread the learning about the Olympics. I'm not sure that we'll be doing much with the World Cup, other than attending games. It's probably an excellent time to make those global connections because Brazil is going through interesting times. Thanks for the reminder.

Hi Blair, 


I'm a big sports fan and we're up against March Madness our basketball fixation in the US.

You might take a look at Dave Zirin's stuff ...  he's got an interesting piece on the World Cup from the view from the favelas ...   http://www.edgeofsports.com/index.html    His book on Brazil is coming out soon too ...

Just thought I'd share... all the best, GA
