1. Dan Fitzpatrick - Leadership in the future

Strategy is about leadership in the future.

If the only constant is change, then to earn our leadership in the future, we must adapt. This is innovation. The pace of artificial intelligence and the emergence of unconventional competition have created an environment where the transformation of the education system is essential if it is to survive.

Educational leaders are faced with a crucial decision point.

Dan spends his time helping educational leaders, teams, and organisations around the world to embrace an uncertain future, so that together, we can build a better education system together.
Key takeaways:
● Delve into the Three Box Solution to innovation and its relevance to AI.
● Pinpoint how your organisation can champion both linear and non-linear innovations in the era of AI.
● Grasp the techniques leaders employ to balance current systems with non-linear innovation.
● Recognize the prevalent obstacles to non-linear innovation.
● Investigate innovative pathways to guarantee your leadership for tomorrow.

4. Jake Macmillan - The future of English assessment: A conversation about how technology is enabling changes in the assessment of young learners 

In this conversation we will delve into two key areas of the recently published Future of English research: how is English language assessment changing and what is the role of new technology in assessment. We will also collectively discuss the opportunities and challenges faced by schools across the region when it comes to assessment. Finally, we will explore how technology has become more prominent in assessing young learners through game-based environments, digital storytelling, virtual reality (VR) language learning, online quizzes, and others. Again, we will touch upon the different benefits and challenges but also examining different ways to engage with key stakeholders from the students themselves, to their parents and of course other members of the school community.

5. Discussion led by John Mackenzie - AI - the big questions 

In this session we will develop and exchange ideas around some of the fundamental issues that underpin the relationship between AI and education. We hope to generate a lively discussion so come prepared to participate!
A few of the questions that we might address are:
    • How does AI influence the way we think about knowledge and knowing?
    • Are AI tools able to think? What does this mean, anyway?
    • Do we need to rethink our concept of intelligence?
    • How will the availability of AI determine the content that we consider to be relevant for students to learn, the teaching and learning themselves, and the way in which learning is assessed?
    • What impact will AI have on the role of the teacher?
    • What can’t AI do?
We will also be happy to include other questions from attendees.

4. Binna, Bernardo Alayza - Creativity in learning: New requirements for the future of schools

In today's era, often referred to as the "Age of People," where interpersonal interactions and skills related to innovation and technology management are becoming increasingly pivotal, the importance of creativity in the learning process cannot be underestimated. According to the latest report from the World Economic Forum (2023), creativity has emerged as one of the most highly sought-after skills in the workplace.

The cultivation of critical thinking, effective communication, collaboration, and problem-solving skills occurs within a creative framework and is considered essential in environments characterized by constant change. For this reason, it is imperative for educational institutions to focus on nurturing students who are both creative and innovative, capable of effectively addressing these demands.

In this session, we will delve into the conceptual framework surrounding creativity in learning. Additionally, we will review various technopedagogical experiences and methodologies developed within the Apple Education ecosystem. These approaches have made a significant impact on shaping individuals who are increasingly well-prepared to confront the challenges of this new era.
