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 Objectives:
1) Unleash your inner child
2) Experience inquiry, play and understand why we must advocate for play

Session Description:
In today’s busy culture of after school tutoring, high stake tests and Common Core, children are being asked to grow up at an alarming rate. As educators, parents and administration, it is our job to defend the child’s most important work: play.

In this session, tap into your inner child and rediscover the joy of  inquiry! Play, laugh and discover! Examine the WHY behind play-based learning and take away the data that supports it.  When your colleague asks you what you did in the session, hopefully you can say, “I just played” with an invigorated understanding of how profound that statement is!
