The Canadian International Educational Organization (CIEO) hosted their 2019 International Education Conference on November 8th at Canadian International School of Guangzhou. The event was attended by teachers, educational experts and faculty from international schools.
There were over 20 topics discussed by education leaders including STEAM educator Stu Lowe and Emerging Technology Consultant for Edmonton Catholic Schools in Edmonton Trish Roffey.
This year’s theme was ‘INNOVATION: The Future Of Education”. The goal was to help teachers, parents and anyone interested in education understand STEAM, PBL, ELL and other aspects of the theme.
STEAM interaction was definitely the highlight of this conference, with workshop topics covering 3D printing, EV3 Robotics, AR/VR learning etc. Guests were able to try out Google glasses and other techonology immersed learning experiences.
Apart from technology, there were theme workshops about Chinese calligraphy, paper art and clay art. Teachers and guests from around the world got to experience how Chinese traditional culture is able to come to life in classrooms.
It was a day of inspiration and we thank everyone for your attendance and support. It made for a very special day for all of us at CIEO and CIS!
