During the summer 2016 vacation I travelled to Hong Kong to work at the French International School. This was arranged through my role as an Independent Thinking Associate. The school was looking for modern and relevant ways to develop a variety of teaching and learning techniques for their setting. A dual stream school across the full age range with multi-lingual students and a student body in excess of 2700, this was a big undertaking and one which clearly had an immediate impact with colleagues at the school as you’ll read below.
In order to ensure that my time with them was spent making the biggest possible impact I worked closely with the leadership team prior to arriving on the day. This saw a number of Skype sessions and a face to face meeting in Hong Kong to ensure that I was well prepared for the day with staff.
The day was a big success. With 5 distinct sessions across the day covering all aspects of formative assessment and assessment for learning, the impact on staff was immediate with a number turning to social media to share their praise about the various sessions.
