      "The best schools are those who deliver the best progress for all of their students; maximising their achievement".

      Targeted teaching: How better data can improve the progress of every student (2015). The challenge for schools is not in knowing that educational data is crucial for school improvement, but in how best to approach school-wide engagement in data. The focus of this event is to provide school leaders with tools to implement school-wide data strategies to support teachers to use data to inform teaching practice. Presentations will include research that identifies strategies for leadership to enable teachers to use data effectively, successful school case studies and analysis of school data sets.

      In this 5.5 hour virtual event you will see and hear all presentations and can choose to share and interact through "chat" tools provided. A host will monitor the virtual audience and relay questions and comments to the presenters and live audience.

    • High Resolves - School Leaders Webinar: A New Way to Lead
      • How can I ensure my staff identify themselves as being part of a single cohesive group?
      • How can I inspire my school community to work together to achieve our strategic priorities?
      • Is there a mismatch between how I lead and how my team wants to be led?

      In our upcoming school leaders webinar, Mehrdad Baghai, author of the New York Times best-seller “As One” will share his knowledge and help you hone the skills you need to face a timeless leadership challenge: how do I get large numbers of individuals working together effectively to achieve a shared purpose? To be specific in the context of school leadership, how do I get students, staff, parents and the wider community to work ‘As One’ to build a better school?

      Mehrdad coined the term “As One” to mean an effective and sustainable exercise of collective action. It defines the choices that individuals, leaders and organisations make about how they interact to achieve common goals. It is a leadership discipline that enables school leaders to connect with their team’s hearts and minds, and channel their energies and actions to achieve results.

      High Resolves is proudly supported by the following education partners:

    • Developing an internationally minded education with the International Baccalaureate
      The International Baccalaureate programmes for students from 3-19 years of age are now taught in over 5000 schools worldwide across a range of socio-economic conditions.  Over 60% of IB schools worldwide are state/provincial schools.  In Australia there are over 290 programmes implemented across State, Catholic and Independent sectors.  

      This webinar has three goals:  First, to explain how the IB curriculum supports learner agency through an inclusive, international minded pedagogy focussed on learning that is relevant, significant, challenging, and engaging.  The motivation for learning is to create a better and more peaceful world.  Collaborative IB learning communities value differentiation, plan authentic tasks through transdisciplinary, interdisciplinary and discipline approaches, and value action and reflection.  The second goal is to explain the research agenda of the IB and present summaries of research from UK, Australia, NZ, and USA on academic achievements and the ‘non-academic’ advantages of IB programmes.   The final goal is to provide a brief overview of the processes of becoming an IB school.

    • Protecting students and staff when abroad
      Increasingly, schools are expected to provide an enriching well-rounded experience for their students. This includes providing extra-curricular opportunities for overseas travel and exploration that allows them to experience the value of other cultures first hand.

      But in providing these services, you will want to ensure the well-being of your students and peace-of-mind for parents is guaranteed. Identifying and managing risk is the only way to ensure a safe and successful trip for your students and staff, whether they are staying close to home or heading overseas. For over 30 years, International SOS has helped schools around the globe deliver truly inclusive education by providing advice and support as they take students and staff away from the classroom to gain the broadest possible education.

      Join this webinar to learn how you can mitigate medical, emotional and security risks whilst supporting the wellbeing of your staff and students overseas.
