Kingswood Primary School extends a warm welcome to all participants of our Learners as Thinkers Conference 2018.

Once again, Kingswood Primary School continues its’ commitment to offering professional learning opportunities that convene and advance the dialogue, innovative research and exemplary approaches regarding thinking and learning among students.

As an Internationally accredited Habits of Mind school, Kingswood Primary recognises the importance of delivering a curriculum that builds skills to meet the demands and challenges of global citizens whilst promoting opportunity for student engagement, agency and challenge.

Our conference captures ‘Pictures of Practice’ across a broad range of educational settings and school contexts. We have drawn on International expertise and acclaimed speakers, Educational Consultants, and the experience of practicing teachers that ‘bring to life’ the Cultural Forces that are visible and valued in classrooms.

We are both proud and excited to have you join us on this Curiosity and Powerful Learning journey, and look forward to your level of professional engagement during Keynote sessions and Workshop presentations.

On behalf of all students, I thank you for ‘Remaining Open to Continuous Learning’-You make a difference!

They received the Malcolm Knowles Award for Lifelong Contributions to Self-Directed Learning in 2016.

Karen Boyes

Winner of the NZ Educator of the Year 2014 and NZ Speaker of the Year award in 2013, Karen is a sought after speaker who continually gets rave reviews from audiences around the world. Her dynamic style and highly informative content—which turns the latest educational research into easy-to-implement strategies and techniques — set her apart from others in her field. An expert in effective teaching and learning, study skills, motivation and positive thinking, Karen has the rare ability to draw her audience in and keep them enthralled. She is both informative and entertaining, as she passes on her practical solutions for learning, teaching, studying, living, working, communicating and growing more effectively as a person.

Keynote: Re-imaging Education… What if…?

What if education looked different? What if we were focused on the future for our learners and not the past? What if content was not our focus and real world learning was? Yes our students need to know how to read, write and math, and what if these were taught in way that created true value for our learners and communities. This is a fast paced stroll into what could be possible and Karen will share educational models of innovative schools.

James Anderson

James first became interested in how to teach students to become better thinkers as a classroom teacher in the late '90s. Later, as a school leader, he spearheaded a national research project focused on infusing Art Costa and Bena Kallick's Habits of Mind into schools and classrooms.

The key finding of this project was that the Habits of Mind were only part of the solution. To see improvements in student learning outcomes, James discovered it was crucial to accompany the Habits of Mind with the development of a Growth Mindset.

James is now passionate about supporting schools and teachers to enable students to thrive in a rapidly changing, increasingly complex and highly challenging world. His learning has taken him beyond thinking skills and Mindsets to the concept of the Agile Leaner - someone who not only understands they are capable of learning to behave more intelligently, but who knows how to go about achieving it!

Keynote: The Agile Learner

Let’s put the Growth back into Growth Mindset! In this dynamic and challenging session you’ll take a deep dive into Growth Mindsets and discover why, on it’s own, a Growth Mindset is not enough. We need to ensure that students not only understand that they are capable of growth, but also how to achieve that growth. James will introduce you to the concept of Learning Agility, and show you how it leads to courageous learners who are not only prepared to take on challenges, but understand how to succeed at them too!
