21 – 23 November, 2014
RDFZ XISHAN SCHOOL
RDFZ XISHAN SCHOOL is the first public school in Mainland China to have developed our own 1-to-1 teaching and learning program – the Future School Program (FSP), designed based on the Partnership for 21 Century Skills framework.
In May 2012, RDFZ XISHAN SCHOOL was awarded the certification as an Apple Distinguished School for the second consecutive year. Since then, our Strategic Innovation and Development department has embarked on a full-scale professional development platform for our teachers, training them in 1-to-1 teaching and learning methods as well as holistic assessment approaches, with the aim of sustainably creating a customized 21st Century learning environment for each unique individual student. In line with this long-term goal, we successfully held the inaugural 1-to-1 Teaching & Learning Exploration @ XISHAN International Summit on 23-25 November 2012, and subsequently our second summit on 22-24 November 2013.
In August 2012, RDFZ XISHAN SCHOOL, together with nine other institutions from Beijing, Shanghai, Singapore, the United States, England and Australia joined to form the Strategic Alliance of Global Educators (SAGE) to share and exchange educational expertise and resources across an international platform.
For our third annual iSummit held 21-23 November 2014, RDFZ XISHAN SCHOOL has invited renowned local and global education experts to grace the event as VIP guests, keynote speakers, presenters and trainers – including Diplomatic Officer of State Council, Chief Principal of RDFZ School Alliance and Principal of Renda Fuzhong Ms. Liu Pengzhi; Principal of Tsinghua Fuzhong Mr. Wang Dian Jun; Head of Special Projects at School of Science and Technology Singapore Ms. Loh Kwai Yin; and President of Global and Online Education College at University of Oregon Prof. Zhao Yong.
Aligning our theme with the three specialist sectors that SAGE focuses on (Bilingualism and Biculturalism; 1-to-1 Computing in Teaching and Learning; Experiential Learning), the third iSummit will be running three concurrent sessions featuring six Keynote Speakers as well as sharing by four SAGE member schools. In addition, the event will hold training workshops conducted by guest presenters and RDFZ XISHAN SCHOOL teachers, and experiential learning activities run by RDFZ XISHAN SCHOOL students.
Other key highlights of the third iSummit are SAGE’s strategic meeting held once every two years, a special education forum for invited participants, the global launch of the 2014 WISE (World Innovation Summit for Education) Book, as well as the handover ceremony for the next school who will be hosting SAGE 2016.
Counting down to yet another successful iSummit in Beijing, the teachers of RDFZ XISHAN SCHOOL look forward to convening with global educators and industry experts from Denmark, Finland, Singapore, and the United States, as well as Greater China educators from Hong Kong, Taiwan, Beijing, Shanghai, Sichuan, Jiangxi and other regions, working meaningfully and collaboratively to forge an even brighter future for education.
