In conversation with Carla Rinaldi: Dr Ger Graus OBE talks to Carla Rinaldi, President of Fondazione Reggio Emilia

Reggio Emilia presents an innovative and inspiring approach to early childhood education, one that sees the child as strong, capable, and resilient, rich with wonder and knowledge, and aims to develop the skills, knowledge, and attributes needed for the future. The Reggio philosophy values children as key players in their own learning, and aspires to help them understand the world and their role in it. We are honoured to host Carla Rinaldi, President of Fondazione Reggio Emilia, and successor to Reggio’s founder Loris Malaguzzi, in an exclusive conversation with the Chair of the Beaconhouse Advisory Council, Dr Ger Graus OBE.

Driving questions:
  • - How does the Reggio approach prepare children for the 21st century?
  • - Why has Reggio not been as aggressive in its growth as other popular early years approaches such as Montessori? Has this been a deliberate strategy?
  • - What has the impact of the pandemic been on the holistic implementation of the Reggio approach?
  • - What has been the biggest impact of school closures on young children in general?
  • - How can leaders and educators support teachers to reconnect with children post-Covid?
  • - What is the future of Reggio Emilia?

Bridging the Digital Divide in Schools of Tomorrow:Permanent Pipe Dream or Reason for New Hope?

The digital divide is not about ‘technology’, per se, but about equitable access to the global knowledge economy. As the world goes digital at a breathtaking pace, we have an obligation to review the growing chasm between the ‘haves’ and the ‘have-nots’, because it is now clear that those who are on the wrong side of the divide will be severely disadvantaged -- as has been painfully evident in the response of different school systems across the world to the Covid-19 crisis. This session includes an active Education Minister, an education technology leader, a former head of Cambridge, and the founder of Beaconhouse brainstorming strategies for new hope for children across the spectrum.

Driving questions:
  • - Has the response of countries and school systems across the world to the Covid crisis deepened the digital divide or simply made it glaringly evident?
  • - Could any new interventions for addressing this divide be derived from emerging learnings from our response to the Covid crisis?
  • - What challenges are being faced by the public sector in trying to close the digital ‘gap’?
  • - Can the private education sector play a role in this regard? Are there opportunities for public-private collaboration?
  • - Is the digital divide always going to remain a harsh reality like other global inequities -- or can it ever be bridged?

Raising Children During a Pandemic: Emotional Wellbeing, Digital Safety and Parenting in an Unknown Terrain

The current pandemic has left many parents struggling with navigating new, uncharted territory. The implications of months of isolation, uncertainty and perhaps even loss of loved ones has meant that children have had to deal with unprecedented and significant adjustments to their lives and routines, which may interfere with their sense of structure, predictability, and security. What role can parents play in supporting their children’s emotional and physical wellbeing during these trying times? This session features leading psychologists and a parent in conversation with England’s former Commissioner for Children.

Driving questions:
  • -What are the implications of the pandemic on children’s health and safety?
  • - How can children be meaningfully engaged during enforced lockdowns?
  • - How do we approach the task of raising our children during a global pandemic which may last another 12-18 months?
  • - What risks and opportunities do parents need to be aware of as children spend an unprecedented amount of time on digital devices, both for school and recreation?

The Future of Higher Education: Could Crisis Drive Transformation at Universities?

Covid has shattered the established configurations, norms, and rituals of colleges and universities across the world. Students’ overall university experience, revolving around social contact and networking, has been curtailed. Anyone who cares about education as an engine of social mobility and a tool to broaden their horizons needs to pay attention. This session features Deans and Vice Chancellors of key universities in the UK, US and in Pakistan in conversation with the head of Qatar Foundation’s WISE.

Driving questions:

  • - Will Covid forever change the face of higher education and the student expectations and experiences associated with it?
  • - Is the current situation leading to an imminent failure of universities or will it provide an opportunity for transformation?
  • - Will rapid advancements in AI and technology serve as risks or opportunities for the validity, reliability and integrity of higher education?

The Sociology of Health: "Private health providers weaken public health systems"

The rising costs and inconsistent quality of healthcare have raised significant questions amongst doctors, professionals, policy makers, and the public about the way health services are delivered across the world. These questions become controversial when comparisons are drawn between private and public health systems and existing disparities are highlighted. This session features a parliamentary-style debate in which one team will support the argument for the motion while the other team will oppose it. Which team will manage to swing viewers’ opinion in its favour?

Driving questions:
  • - Should access and provision of quality healthcare be dependent on social and economic class?
  • - Do health providers give precedent to ‘moral responsibility’ over economic gain?
  • - Do private health providers fill in the capacity gap in terms of quality and quantity?
  • - Are public healthcare systems weak by design, or weak because of the actions or existence of private healthcare providers? Is this equation the same in developed and developing countries?

Strategies for Teaching & Collaborating in the Virtual World: A Workshop for Teachers, School Leaders, and Curriculum Developers

A renowned learning designer based in the US, Jill Ackers believes that unprecedented learning environments require us to access new learning opportunities and adjust to changing role expectations. Teachers around the globe want to know:
  • 1) How do we shift curriculum originally designed for in-person instruction?
  • 2) How do we adapt to online platforms for demonstrations of learning?
  • 3) How will we find time and space to effectively collaborate with other professionals in a virtual environment? Join Jill Ackers as we explore how to create virtual environments where students demonstrate ownership over the learning process, reimagine accessible and independent content delivery, and navigate collaborative groupings that promote asynchronous participation.
  • Staying Sane During Turbulent Times A presentation by Dr Daniel Fung, Chairman Medical Board, Institute of Mental Health. Singapore

    While many of us are sheltering in places to help slow the spread of the COVID pandemic, a massive mental health pandemic is also brewing. The daily doses of death, isolation, incidents of domestic violence, and the fear attached with the pandemic has generated widespread psychological trauma leading to depression, post traumatic stress, substance abuse, and even suicide. If mental health had become a growing concern pre-pandemic, now it has multiplied in face of new realities of working from home, unemployment, online schooling and lack of contact with loved ones. We are honoured to host Dr Daniel Fung, Chairman Medical Board, Institute of Medical Health, Singapore, to share with us his thoughts and expertise on handling mental health crises during the pandemic.
    Driving questions:
  • Social isolation has given birth to multiple new feelings and emotions. How should people work through those feelings and take care of their own and their loved ones mental health?
  • What synchronous and asynchronous support can be provided to support mental health concerns during and post Covid?
  • What steps can be taken by policy makers, business owners, schools, communities, and individuals to avoid the mental health crisis? Should a common framework be in place to deal with this global mental health crisis?
  • How will the pandemic shape the future of child and adolescent psychiatry?

  • In Conversation with Lord David Puttnam, Academy Award Winning Film Producer

    With virtually unlimited time on their hands, people around the world are consuming film and television on streaming services like Netflix at previously unimagined levels. This adds even more gravitas to the already tremendous power that film and television hold over our perceptions, beliefs, and aspirations both at conscious and subconscious levels. But it also places a tremendous burden on film directors and producers to help shape narratives that lead us towards safer and more equitable futures for all. We are honoured to host Lord David Puttnam CBE, Academy Award Winning Film Producer, in an exclusive conversation with filmmaker and journalist Munizae Jahangir, as we talk about his iconic films - and the power of the arts to drive societal change.
    Driving questions:
  • - What is the story behind Chariots of Fire? Do you feel its message is still relevant today?
  • - Can film actually help us in shaping safer and more equitable futures for all, or are we overstating its power? If so, is there a particular role that filmmakers can play in addressing the present global health crisis?
  • - Who controls the messaging of films - is it governments, special interest groups, intelligence agencies....Netflix? Does the public have a say in this? Indeed, does this pose a threat to democracy as we know it?
  • - Are there any flaws in today’s film industry that have led to it losing its once exalted position?
  • - Will Internet streaming services like Netflix and Amazon lead to the demise of cinema?

  • IN CONVERSATION WITH ANDREAS SCHLEICHER, DIRECTOR GENERAL, OECD DIRECTORATE FOR EDUCATION & SKILLS

    Education and educational philosophy has evolved over the years due to technological advancement, precarious economic trends, social changes, and environmental challenges. Covid has further accelerated the change as the world has become more volatile, complex and uncertain. This uncertainty has led to citizens and educators questioning sacrosanct educational structures around which we had designed our practices and belief systems.
    We are honoured to host Mr Andreas Schleicher, Head of the OECD Directorate of Education & Skills and Creator of the global PISA Test, to talk about the future of learning, assessment, and the way forward for education in a post Covid era and beyond..
    Driving questions:
  • - How is the Pandemic changing education? Has Covid managed to bust widely accepted myths about education?
  • - What was the philosophy behind PISA (Programme for International Student Assessment), and what lessons can be derived from its outcomes over the last few years?
  • - How will assessment philosophy and methodologies change in the future? Will we always be test driven?
  • - What kind of cognitive and socioemotional skills do children and young adults require to succeed in an unknown future?
  • - What are some key aspects that need to be considered in building a school system for the latter half of the 21st century?

    Abstract

    Session title Abstract Panelists Session 1 (panel discussion Setting Directions for a Brave New World The world as we knew it in 2019 is a lost world​. The new decade will see us reconstruct a brave and courageous new world defined through our negotiation of the complex challenges surrounding the Covid-19 global pandemic. Sharing our intellectual, emotional and social competencies, will help understand the global pandemic that both afflicts us and drives us to create a better world. Driving questions: Is the ‘Covid-effect’ temporary or has it permanently altered the future of education? How do we balance the seemingly competing yet equally compelling forces of protecting lives and saving global economies from complete obliteration? Will the post-pandemic world really be different? Will we ever be able to eliminate poverty, unequal distribution of wealth, and unequal access to healthcare? What did we learn from the WHO’s warning in 2005 of a global pandemic and Bill Gates’ elaboration on this in 2015? What lessons can humanity now learn about the future?
