Welcome to WORLD EDULEAD 2019!
It is my honor to be a lead speaker at the upcoming World Edulead in Singapore, April 2019. It is a pleasure to re-join forces with INTASE, a world leader in education conferences that feature world-class insights in education transformation. Please join me and other leaders as we feature new insights and research about developing education for 2030 and beyond.
Our latest work focuses on three interrelated themes. The first is Deep Learning that my colleagues and I take up in our new book 'Engage the world, Change the world' in which we show that the current schools system in most countries do not meet the needs or interests of the majority of students, and that a learning revolution is underway to change teaching and learning. Not only does this revolution focus on new learning outcomes that we call Global Competencies or the 6Cs (character, citizenship, collaboration, communication, critical thinking, and creativity), but also it engages students in new learning focuses and modes. Specifically, this mode engages students studying the world in order to learn more about it, and in order to change it for the better, both locally and globally. This approach has generated enormous new motivation and energy on the part of students and teachers in at least seven countries in which we work and is akin to a social movement.

Second, we are part of significant new work that focuses on improving systems. Our book, 'Coherence: The right drivers in action for schools, districts and systems' lays out a fourfold framework for increasing ‘coherence’ in organization according to ‘direction, collaboration’, learning, and accountability’. Another book called 'System change: The devil is in the details' is intended for system leaders to help them improve whole systems in terms of engagement of students, parents, and educators.
The third theme and one that cuts across the other two focuses concerns new insights about leadership: first that it is more diverse than previously thought and second that the ‘new leadership’ involves learning from followers. The net effect is ‘joint learning’, one that continuously fosters leadership in others thereby developing pools of collaborative leaders for continuous improvement and innovation. This new leadership is captured in the newest book called 'Nuance: Why some leaders succeed and others fail'.
In conclusion, in many ways 2019 will be a watershed or breakthrough year for public education, and should usher in a new series of fundamental reforms for the next decade. World EduLead 2019 will engage participants to assess and shape new ideas for the future.
