Opening Keynote Presentation: How to Embrace and Effectively Lead Change Within an International Education Context

Why do we resist change as we grow older? How can we nurture and develop an organisational culture that embraces change and encourages collaboration?

Richard examines why change has become increasingly challenging and how risk aversion can stifle individuals and organisations. He explores how to harness the power of creativity, curiosity and confidence in uncertain times and why we must shift the paradigm to understand that change is not a programme or a strategy but an ever-present organic part of the 21st Century.

Noah, Kathleen and Armand will also share recommendations around three core questions:

  • What are we currently doing that we should continue to do?

Presentation: Taking Back Control of Your Educational Technology

Educational technology is spiralling out of control in many schools; stressing teachers and pupils, confusing parents and burning out the IT team. Add to that the dual pressures of new data protection legislations and cyber threat, and school leaders are looking for a way to regain control.

Glaucia Rosas and James Wilkinson, founders of The EduTec Alliance, explain how we ended up here and some simple steps to take back the reins.
