KORCOS18 IEC has ended
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.

Session Objective:
Open your mind about the amazing benefits of play based learning for all ages.

Session Description:
We will explore the power of purposeful play to make learning more engaging and enjoyable. Following Dr. David Whitehead's Four Types of Play framework, we will collaborate in small groups to design play-based learning engagements suitable for any age or subject.  The exciting area of brain research reveals evidence for the value of play for educating the whole child.  This evidence is an empowering take-away for educating not only the parents but yourselves as teachers on the value of play-based learning in your classroom, no matter what grade level.
