[Conference] Opportunities for the 10th Annual 21st Century Learning Conference

The Mission of 21st Century Learning is “Building Communities of Learners”, and for the first time this year, they have introduced a conference strand covering Diversity & Inclusion. This will be looking at how current pedagogy and tools can be leveraged to enhance the educational experience for learners with diverse learning needs.
 
Partnership with SENIA
We have partnered with the Special Education Network in Asia (SENIA) to help select presenters and to spread the word in the community so as to ensure this is an event worth attending if your focus is special needs, diversity or inclusion.
 
Present at the Conference?
It’s not too late to submit a presentation. If you would like the opportunity to present on your area of expertise or experience at the conference then please submit here.
 
Diversity, Inclusion & SEN Schools Tour (Tour Partner TextHelp)
The tour will visit five Hong Kong schools to see a variety of approaches to diversity, inclusion and SEN provision in action.
