LEVNT Schools have been invited to attend an information session to be held at the Association if Independent Schools of South Australia (AISSA) on Friday 17 November about the Human Interdependence Program with Professor Yong Zhao and Dr Trina Emler.
AISSA is proud to be in a partnership with YEE Education, Bejing, and Yong Zhao. This is year 2 of a pilot program that works with teachers and students from across the globe to find problems worth solving and to innovate, create and find entrepreneurial solutions that create value for others.
The program aims to cultivate globally competent, creative, and entrepreneurially minded humans, following the three pillars of the new paradigm of education proposed by Yong Zhao: personalisable learning, authentic product-oriented learning, and globally situated learning.
Students and teachers from Australia, China and beyond will work together to create authentic products that illustrate human connectedness and interdependence in the globalized world. In doing so, students will discover and develop their unique strengths, enjoy participation in product creation and service opportunities that make a difference and develop global competency and social intelligence in online and cross-cultural settings.
Teachers will develop new skills for teaching in a new paradigm of education, lead the creation of future education, network with like-minded educators in Australia and China and have the opportunity to work with some of the world’s leading education experts.
If you would like to hear more, we would love to see you at AISSA, via an online opportunity, on Friday 17 November from 10.30am – 12.30pm. Dr Zhao will be face to face at AISSA and ready to answer any questions you may have. Please also see the timeline for additional information.
Please register here. Where you list your school, please also clearly which state you are in.
The three AISSA schools who trialled the program in 2023 will also be present to share their project stories.
