During the pandemic, teachers and parents around the world had to quickly adapt to a new way of learning, but what lessons have we learned and what changes have been made to improve parental engagement moving forward?
Last month educators from 52 countries united to discuss ‘Partnering with Parents’, an opportunity to reflect and evaluate how effectively schools develop the partnership between parents and schools.
Guest speakers Andrew Ackers, Ozgu Ozturk, Kisset Mangabat and Joanne Ladds led the discussion and shared their global perspectives.
Joanne Ladds, Head of Upper School at Wycombe Abbey School, Nanjing said:
“It was an absolute pleasure to speak at the GSA conference on parental engagement. Preparing the presentation enabled me to think carefully about our procedures, what is working, and what we could consider adjusting. That moment to step away from the day to day, to think about the bigger picture is invaluable.
The team at GSA were incredibly supportive and helpful prior, during and after the event. Hundreds of teachers attended from across the globe. They asked thought provoking questions and posed recommendations and perspectives for their own unique settings.
What a wonderful way to meet likeminded educational professionals who want to make a positive impact on the lives of others. I couldn’t recommend this highly enough. See you at the next one?”
