EVENT DESCRIPTION

INTRODUCTION


In the 21st century, the curriculum is no longer the most important aspect of school.  The learning experience is.  The experience of learning is what teaches students the portable skills they need to be successful in this rapidly changing world.  A positive learning experience is what causes students to graduate and become life-long learners, not just learners who can retain content information long enough to take the next test.  A deeper learning experience is what creates self-esteem, empathy, confidence, and agency, essential qualities for personal success in the world of work, in relationships and with family, and in civic life. 

Students are an untapped resource that can change the world.  Traditional education positions students as not yet ready to be contributing members of society, but a change in that paradigm could unleash unimaginable talent to solve the world’s problems.  

The Revolution in Education Congress: PBL with Purpose has a mission to be that kind of learning experience for educators.  With hours of hands-on coaching workshops and focused keynote speeches by leading experts from the top school associations in North America, South America, Europe, Asia & Africa it will be a congress like no other.   Participants will work together in small groups and challenge conventional educational paradigms, preparing them to later create changes in their own institutions. 

The congress is organized by Dr. Frank Locker, creator of Harvard University’s LEFT program and international educational planning consultant, Nicholas Salmon, founder and president of the Collaborative Learning Network,  in alliance with Avante & Gimnasio los Caobos private schools leading PBL with Purpose experiences with great learning results and positive impact  on admissions and parent/student engagement and satisfaction.
