Share Your LS Journey at International Conferences

The trolley at San Diego where NCSM and NCTM events are hel this year.

Does your team want to present at international conferences?

Why do you want to do it? Preparing for these conferences is a learning journey in itself. Also, there are so many things to learn at these conferences. Plus, you get to see a bit of the place yo are presenting.

Do you need to be an expert to present?

Absolutely not. People are interested how Singapore teachers develop themselves professionally. It beats nothing to hear it from you directly. I am happy to coach any school who is keen to prepare for a conference.

This is a selection of 2011 conferences I think will provide opportunities for learning. Deadlines for proposal are approaching but there is plenty of time to prepare the actual presentation. If you need ideas for proposal contact me.

General Education
2011 ASCD Annual Conference San Francisco CA
What you will learn at this conference?
UbD, DI, PLC especially action research, MI. Key authors of these concepts like Carol Tomlinson (DI) and the others are often at this conference.

Mathematics Education
2011 NCTM Annual Meeting and Exposition Indianapolis IN
What you you learn at this conference?
There is a mind boggling-number of sessions from dawn to dusk. There is a fantastic expo with manipulatives, books and so on. I come every year and I still get excited each time I attend this. If you are also interested in leadership in mathematics education e.g. HoDs, senior teachers and lead teachers, there is a NCSM Annual Conference that preceeds that.



Nearer to Singapore WALS2010 Conference is hosted by Brunei in December
