LINKgroup at the top again: Partnership with World Education Summit 2022
and a special stage just for us
The largest global event in the field of education – the World Education Summit was held last week. More than 400 speakers from all over the world, and four days of live program on ten dynamic virtual stages made this summit the most visited event in the world of education. Over 50,000 visitors tuned in to watch the event from all over the world, and as many will join through the learning platform Summit Central.
The LINKgroup Educational Alliance has once again proved that we are among the very best in innovative teaching practice, and our partnership with the organisers of the World Education Summit gave us the opportunity to curate one of the ten stages – Balkan Education Summit. This is a unique privilege that has been granted only to our Alliance, because, in addition to English, all languages of the region could be heard on this stage.
OUR TEACHERS ON THE GLOBAL STAGE
Academic Director of the Institute for Contemporary Education, Dr Svetlana Belić Malinić, was curating the program of our stage on behalf of our Alliance, and her presentation on research in the field of neuroscience, and the role of neurotransmitters in the science of learning was scheduled for the first day of the summit. Milica Aleksić, English teacher at Savremena gimnazija presented the topic of student engagement in the learning process while leveraging their motivation. Nadežda Golubović, Biology teacher and STEAM coordinator of the International School, talked about the importance of the mentoring program for the social-emotional development of teachers, while her colleague, Global Perspectives teacher, Tatjana Koluvija, explained the role of a mindful and assertive approach to one’s relationship with coworkers, students and parents.
In addition to the representatives of our Alliance and teachers from the region, who showed the world the transformative potential of the Balkans, where teachers achieve great feats with limited resources, the audience could also join the sessions of influential educators from Finland, Estonia, Denmark, The Netherlands, Switzerland, UK, USA, Singapore and Hong Kong on this stage. During the four days of the summit, our stage hosted 44 great presentations that showcased educational innovation, international practices, great projects, and outstanding ideas.
WHAT WE LEARNED AT THE WORLD EDUCATION SUMMIT
The World Education Summit brought together the most distinguished professionals in the field of education, innovative educational leaders, skillful motivational speakers, inspiring and enthusiastic teachers who shared their educational ideas and good teaching practices with the audience through presentations, workshops, and panel discussions. The topics were diverse, so that all delegates from different parts of the world could find something interesting: from the application of new technologies, through experiential approaches to teaching, to unusual projects that encourage change.
The World Education Summit singled out ten emerging horizons in education that we should strive toward:
- Learning first
- Democratisation of learning
- Social emotional learning (SEL)
- Learning strategies
- Embracing errors and mistakes
- World class initial teacher education
- Contribution science
- Leadership climate challenge
- Collective assessment
Our speakers published their scientific papers, creative educational ideas, and outstanding projects in a special issue of the K12 Digest Magazine, dedicated to our stage at the World Education Summit.
The LINKgroup Educational Alliance keeps up with the trends in education, and strives to provide our teachers and educational leaders with the opportunities for continuous professional development. This is why we believe that the World Education Summit is an incredible opportunity to learn from the best and with the best in education. The participation of our Institute for Contemporary Education in such a prestigious event is an indicator that we are stepping firmly toward the innovations of tomorrow, and that we can readily respond to the challenges of Education 4.0.
