CPD sessions

Hosted by Dragonfly Training, the following free CPD sessions will be running throughout the day:

Workshop A: No Passengers Permitted: Promoting Independent Learning - Aaron Wilkes

The lessons that have that ‘X factor’ are ones in which the students are not passive classroom passengers but are active learners, motivated to work independently or collaboratively and extend themselves as far as they can. This workshop explores how to prevent your students from becoming passengers in lessons, helps you set up lessons where the students work a lot harder than they have done before and offers practical, down-to-earth advice, tips and teaching techniques that have been proven to work.

Workshop B: Teacher Tech Top Up: Mobilising the Power of Technology to Improve Progress - Peter Dawes

With technology playing an ever-increasing role in education, it is vital to have a good working knowledge of how best to apply it. The workshop will consider not just the how, but more importantly, the WHY and the WHEN (Spoiler alert - when it can motivate, save time or improve on a pen and paper!). This session will be practical, hands-on and presented in plain English: the technically nervous need have no fear! Please be sure to bring along a device - a mobile phone is fine.

Your presenter has been running IT-based courses since the Millennium, including a week of workshops at Apple HQ in Bangkok.

Workshop C: Growth Mindsets: Real and Sustained Achievement - Dave Taylor

Come and hear about actual classroom strategies you can use to implement a Growth Mindset culture in your classroom. Hear about the things that Professor Carole Dweck is concerned are misinterpreting her work. Come and hear about how Growth Mindset should be seen as a set of strategies used for certain situations not an overall state of being.
