Confederation of Indian Industry (CII) Eastern Region is organising the Fourth Edition of the flagship programme titled CII School Excellence Conclave with the theme “Evolve to Solve: Reforming Schools for Tomorrow” on 24 November 2018 at Hotel Radisson, Kolkata.
A classroom is not a place where the teacher is a preacher and the students are the listeners. It’s about the success of the whole team (teacher & students). Teachers are designers of learning and can create experiences tailored to suit their outcome. If we “re-professionalize” teachers as designers who can create their own scripts for what they want students to learn, we can shape students for tomorrow. Students needs to experience more flow in schools, if we want to make children’s learning joyful. No longer can schooling be primarily about creating workers and test takers, but rather nurturing human beings. By helping students find the pleasure in learning, we can make that learning impactful and sustainable.
Against this backdrop CII is organizing Fourth edition of School Excellence Conclave on 24 November 2018 at Radisson Hotel, Kolkata with the theme of Reforming Schools for Tomorrow which aims to look at the latest global trends and developments in school education, including changes to the: schooling system; society; behavior; pedagogy; technology; professional learning; and learning spaces.
The conclave aims to cover:
A School of Future – What, Why & How
Learning or Best practices by CII Making Students Future Ready Project (MSFR) partners
School & Community Partnership – The Way Forward
