Special Address
Which factors are driving innovation in teaching? How do teachers across the globe compare relative to their approaches to ‘Teaching for Tomorrow’? Who does a better job at teaching for tomorrow, and why? How can we measure what makes a school system work? Andreas Schleicher walks us through the international tests (TALIS and PISA), and the outcomes of the collaboration with the UAE education authorities regarding the performance of its teachers.

SPECIAL ADDRESS
The Ron Clark Academy has inspired teachers to think differently about the changing nature of education, technology, and more fundamentally, the human capacity for innovation and creativity. In a Plenary Address to Qudwa teachers on the theme of ‘Teaching for Tomorrow’, Ron Clark will argue why creating environments that prioritise academic rigor and discipline and at the same time celebrate self-expression and creativity should be a model for the way teachers should teach, and the way students should learn.

Teaching for Tomorrow: Disrupting Class to Reinvent Education
Each student has different learning needs at different times, yet most teachers are forced to teach to the average of the classroom because today’s education system is not designed to serve all students. A new way is emerging that seizes the power of disruptive innovation to rethink teaching and learning and be able to personalize to serve all students. That power is now within the grasp of all teachers - and Michael Horn will outline how you can start to seize it.
