Everyone agrees that our education system in South Africa and the world is in serious need of change. But what are the key levers to make that change a reality? This year’s theme is: connect + create = change.
Over the next few days, we will explore ways of turning classrooms into creative spaces for learning, and challenge you to make these spaces sites where learners can connect both with each other and with the wider local and global communities in which they find themselves. We aim to build a community of educators who commit to become active change agents in our schools, our communities, our country and the world at large.
Day 1 – Connection Zones: We will engage in small groups in a range of creative activities (from facilitated discussions, book readings, improvised theatre and a maker space) where active participation is encouraged, all voices are valued, and where every attendee can make a meaningful contribution.
Day 2 – Community of Practice Workshops: We will explore topics such as creativity in the classroom, building connections in and out the classroom and how educators can turn their schools into levers of change through promoting an equitable, just and inclusive society.
Day 3 – Teach Back Sessions: We will work collaboratively in groups of 8 to 10 to create and implement short and fun lessons based on what you have learned during the Summit. The next three days will challenge and excite you as you are part of co-creating a new story for education in South African and the world. Thank you for being part of our journey.
