They say that ‘it takes a village to raise a child’, and that’s why on the 30th of November 2016 at Leaps of Knowledge: Creating Connections, it’s all about creating connections between educators and parents to raise 21st century learners, together!
Facilitating this movement, you and your friend will be treated to a full day of blended learning, with activities to kickstart a deeper understanding of Design Thinking and putting it to good use through the support of the Frog VLE and its community!
Centred around the 5 C’s - Creativity; Communication; Collaboration; Character and Critical Thinking, participants will experience a line-up of inspiring keynote speakers, engaging activities and the opportunity to network with other attendees over a shared purpose.
Join us at Leaps of Knowledge to ignite that spark and make a difference!
Hear from inspiring international line-up of keynote speakers that will spark conversations for change!
We are also proud to hear directly from the winners of the
FrogAsia Vinnie Chan Award about their ideas to shape the world
we live in.
After being inspired by the keynote speeches, you'll then be part of a massive interactive workshop and experience what it feels like to be a part of a FrogAsia Hub!
Together with your new friends, you’ll learn ways to collaborate and improve outcomes for your students!
