Attending this event?
We are here: Compassion, Creativity, Change.  

Let’s come together as a community of educators to reflect, grow and connect, empowering each other to create change agents for tomorrow.  What does it mean to be compassionate? What does it mean to be innovative? What does it mean to teach? To learn? To care?

We can’t wait to host you at GSIS for the Korea Council of Overseas Schools International Educators’ Conference 2018 (#KORCOSIEC18).  We are excited to make connections with the vision to create a better tomorrow.  That begins with the idea of a "We" being in the moment together, with the commitment to be our best selves for our students.  

Let’s do this.

** Registration opens at the start of the 2018-19 school year.  Look to September 1, 2018 for the Registration Eventbrite.  Currently, we are in the process of curating presenters.  If you are an amazing educator and wish to share your craft with others next to these incredible human beings pre-selected, please apply HERE.**

Texting on a Tightrope

Log in to save this to your schedule and see who's attending!

Raise your hand if you’ve seen a teenager walking with their head buried in a smartphone only to end up bumping into something or someone! Teachers strive to do a great job of incorporating digital technology into our education; however, the conversation on how we as parents and educators can disciple our teens through the digital medium has only scratched the surface. In this session participants will explore the phenomenon of the Adolescent Tightrope to learn how a culture of uncertainty and isolation affects a teen’s sense of self and shapes their use of social media. Using doctoral level research, insights from students, and field experience, we will reflect on how we as a community of educators can lead our young to wholeness and authenticity in physical and digital spaces alike.
