HundrED is going ‘GLocal’ with our first Ambassador-hosted event in London this January.

HundrED Ambassadors and community members are the driving force behind these 'GLocal' events. They scour their local region and dig into their area of expertise, looking for education innovations that inspire.

As advocates for the power of student voice, we are proud that our first glocal event is on the theme of ‘Choices and Voices’ in K12 education. Too often educators and young people feel their choices are limited and their voices are not heard. One powerful way to combat a lack of voice and choice in education? Provide compelling examples of the innovative approaches already making the change. That's what this event is all about. 

Global & Local Speakers 

This glocal event connects local teachers to some of the most inspiring innovations out there, both local and global. It’s all about sparking an inclusive, collaborative movement for innovation in education!

We’ve invited local and global education practitioners and pioneers. What better way to describe all this than ‘glocal?’

Pero Sardzoski, the innovator behind Pegasus Digital Literacy for EFL Students, will be joining us all the way from Macedonia. He'll be sharing why EFL and digital literacy go hand in hand.

You'll also hear from Riku Alkio, Founder of Seppo, who'll share how students at the International Academy of Greenwich use Seppo to learn outside the classroom in exciting, cutting-edge ways.

Additionally, hear from the teams behind Voice 21 from the UK and Lyfta from Finland. Voice 21 is an organization that trains, inspires and supports state schools to teach spoken communication, dialogue, and public speaking to all students and campaigns for oracy to have a higher status in the education system. 

Lyfta is a rich media learning experience from Finland that invites pupils to have memorable, immersive experiences with real human stories from around the world. Lyfta lessons are designed in-line with Finland’s 21st Century Skill based curriculum and offer a great tool for teaching about the UN Sustainable Development Goals.

Local speakers include: Sebastien Chapleau, Head Teacher, La Fontaine Academy, and founder, Citizen School; Stephanie Hill from Passmores Academy; Nadine Bernard, Founder of ‘I am here, we see you’; and Leila Douri, Teacher, Surrey Square Primary School.

 

Local Hosts

The event will be hosted by HundrED Ambassador Alex Bell, Founder of Portland Education, and Big Education, in collaboration with HundrED.

Portland Education helps schools and school leaders to be bold, brave and authentic. The UK-based organization designs and delivers top quality professional development for whole schools and coach school leaders to become the leaders they really want to be.

Big Education is a group of schools in London that believes that schools have become closed and narrow. That’s why they offer an education of the head, heart, and hand. By coming together to form Big Education, the schools seek to inspire, provoke and empower others from across education and beyond. To ask bigger questions, think more boldly, and challenge some of the assumptions of ‘the way we do things’, to change the story of education in the UK.


This GLocal event takes place at the International Academy of Greenwich, London. Join us on Tuesday, January 29th, 2019, 5.30-7.30pm (GMT)
