MELANIE KELLS

CANADA

Canadian International School Bangalore., St. Thomas University (CA)

"Learn to do by doing" is the motto of 4-H, a youth organisation that Melanie was actively involved in from age nine to twenty-one. It is her philosophy of teaching, too. She believes that modelling what you would like others to do is the best way to achieve results, whether with students or colleagues. She make mistakes, she admits them, and she hopes that her students would do the same.
Teaching, living, and experiencing the cultures of the Canada, United Arab Emirates, China, South Korea, and India since 1997 has allowed Melanie to teach science in a meaningful and purposeful way. Melanie currently lives in Bangalore, India with Shane and their children, Spenser and Braelyn. Since August 2011, she has been the Dean of Studies at Canadian International School Bangalore and has helped to implement a one to one iPads learning environment for students in grade 6-12.

She joined Silver Oaks Hyderabad as Principal in 2005 and emerged as Director Education.Having worked in Delhi, Mumbai and Shillong, she comes with diverse experiences and multiple perspectives on Indian education system and the Boards.
With the unique advantage of having taught from pre primary to Grade XII in CBSE Schools across India, she is thorough with National curriculum Framework and it's interpretations by different boards in all subjects at all year levels. Exposure to multicultural, social and geographical fabric of India, enables her to understand the context of schools, aspirations of parents and the needs of students.
By introducing International Baccalaureate program in Silver Oaks, she leveraged the potential of teachers and students to be high performers with a clear profile of character and competence.
Curriculum and Instructional design, teacher training, academic administration, team building and strategic management are her skills. As a leader, she inspires students, teachers, parents and the community professionally and personally. Times of India recognized her as one of the top 3 leaders in the state, in the Lead India Contest.

She travelled to Singapore, Malaysia, Indonesia and Thailand, to give talks, presentations or conduct training programs at IBO conferences and IB Schools. Visit to schools in Australia motivated her to create a research centre in Silver Oaks and encourage research based teaching and learning through cognitive methods.
As a speaker at three TEDx events, writer, blogger and passionate Himalayan trekker, she makes life a colorful canvas. Taking inspiration from Gandhiji's maxim, "you be the change you wish to see in the world", she creates Silver Oaks Schools as eco systems for inspired learning.

Mari-Pauliina

MA (Psychology), postgraduate student (Special Education)
Project manager
Centre for Educational Assessment
University of Helsinki, Finland
FINLAND

The goals of basic education have expanded from developing students’ competences in the curricular subjects to enhancing their cross-curricular or transversal skills which are needed for all learning later in life. The Centre for Educational Assessment at the University of Helsinki was established in 1996 to develop an instrument for measuring learning to learn as the foundation for lifelong learning. Today, the Centre works in collaboration with schools and municipalities in the fields of educational assessment, research and development.

As the project manager of the Centre I am committed to the further development of methods for assessing educational equity in Finnish schools and for ensuring that assessment results and research can be utilized in developing practices at school-level. I also work as the vice-NPM of Finland in PISA 2015, coordinating the assessment of collaborative problem-solving.

I am particulary interested in the development of learning to learn skills - cognitive compentences and learning-related attitudes - in primary school, and the role of group processes in explaining differences in the development of pupils' learning-related attitudes. I am also interested in the implementation of the new three-tiered support model in Finnish schools - after all the Finnish way of supporting the weakest pupils can be seen as one of the key factors explaining the country's success in international comparisons such as the Programme for International Student Assessment (PISA).

Ed Leadership International Roundtable: Bringing the best in education together

Recent innovation in education has been random and mostly directed to the ‘how’ of it- how to make learning more joyful and how to teach content in more effective ways utilizing different faculties of a child as gateways to learning.

The Ed Leadership International Roundtable Conference on Global Trends and Innovations in Education focuses on this ‘why’ and is a forum to network and share resourceful ideas with international experts and fellow practitioners.

What education has not focused on are the goals to which the current system should be geared and why. The Ed Leadership International Roundtable Conference on Global Trends and Innovations in Education focuses on this ‘why’ and is a forum to network and share resourceful ideas with international experts and fellow practitioners.

Dr Sunita Gandhi, Convener, Ed Leadership and Education We Want, and Co-Founder, Council for Global Education, USA, The 6th Ed Leadership International Roundtable Conference, held from December 19th – 21st, at the CMS World Unity Convention Centre, Lucknow,

She also said that a new curriculum design was being implemented, and research and innovation is being carried out with the help of the Process of Perfection learning system of Global Classroom.

Dr Fred Mednick, Assistant Professor, Johns Hopkins University School of Education, USA advocated the direct connection between teachers, professional development and global change. Dr Mednick is the founder of Teachers without Borders, an organization comprising of teachers from 185 countries sharing ideas for change. His dissertation, “The Qualities of an Educated Teen for the 21st Century”, was inspired by colleagues in Udaipur and extends a UNESCO report into a model of education change.

Also joining him at the conference as a speaker was Dr Simi Srivastava, a storytelling expert and the founder of Kathasthala.
