“Learning Environments Today: Fostering Engagement and Achievement through Transformation and Change”

In response to the wisdom of John Dewey and Sir Ken Robinson, this presentation addresses the imperative of aligning education with the dynamic needs of today’s students. Emphasizing the necessity of adapting to the evolving educational landscape, the discussion explores current best practices in learning.

Barrett’s research reveals that agile learning environments significantly enhance academic performance, particularly in reading, writing, and mathematics. Personalized, flexible classrooms contribute to 25% of academic improvement, granting students autonomy. In mathematics, 73% of student progress is linked to comforting classroom designs that alleviate anxiety.

The symbiosis between flexible learning spaces and evolving pedagogy is examined, disrupting traditional teaching dynamics and empowering students while boosting academic engagement. Inspired by Heard & McDonough, the presentation underscores the creation of environments fostering wonder, mystery, and discovery to nurture innate curiosity.

Ultimately, this presentation aims to inspire educators and school leaders to reassess and reshape learning environments, cultivating a future-ready generation passionately dedicated to exploration, discovery, and lifelong learning.

Expected outcome of the presentation:

Awareness of Educational Evolution: Participants will gain a heightened awareness of the evolving educational landscape and the critical need to align teaching methods with the dynamic needs of contemporary students.

Impact of Agile Learning Environments: The session will convey Barrett’s research findings, demonstrating how agile learning environments significantly improve academic performance, with a specific focus on reading, writing, and mathematics.

Significance of Personalization: Educators will recognize the importance of personalized, flexible classrooms, understanding that 25% of academic improvement can be attributed to granting students autonomy within their learning spaces.

Pedagogical Transformation: Educators will explore the symbiotic relationship between flexible learning spaces and evolving pedagogy, realizing the potential for transformative shifts in teaching dynamics and increased student empowerment.

Inspiration for Environment Creation: The session will inspire participants to create learning environments that spark wonder, mystery, and discovery, fostering innate curiosity among students.

Call to Action: Ultimately, school leaders will be motivated to reassess and reshape their learning environments, actively contributing to the cultivation of a future-ready generation passionately dedicated to exploration, discovery, and lifelong learning.

Breaking Barriers: Sustainable Leadership

In this ever-changing world, educational institutions face different challenges which will require different coping strategies. We will talk about real example often faced by educational leaders in dealing with teachers and students well-being as well as clients’ expectation.

Topics to discuss are as follows:
• Sustainable leadership inspired by performance trust quadrant and creating a circle of safety in the organization.
• Infusing values of humanity to the learners in the technology-infused educational approach. (a touch in the CAS as the core mandated in IB Diploma Programme)
• Breaking barriers of learning especially with different learning requirements. (implementing inclusivity in “exclusive” SPK schools)
• Balancing teachers’ and students’ well-being with academic expectations and competitiveness.
• Paradigm shift in educators and educational leaders
Through this discussion, it is expected that participants will have an opportunity to reflect on their educational practices, gain useful insights to suggest to policy makers and to inspire implementation in real- world settings.
