Education conference: Child Development in the Social Environment
17 September 2017 - 18 September 2017
Institute Montessori Bulgaria initiates and organises a one-day Education Conference: Child Development in the Social Environment, which aims at a public discussion focusing on the future of the education, the social aspects of child development and ways to promote so-called “soft skills”.
We need to consider education as a preparation for life. It is related not only to the mastering of academic knowledge, but also to the unique potential of the child to develop independent thinking, decision making, self-discipline, ethic, communication skills, a complex set of cooperation, critical thinking and problem resolution skills. How is this goal implemented in the family and in the classroom? What are the children’s achievements in the area of social development? Are there specific measurements of the social functioning of the students?
On 17th of September 2017, 9:00am – 6:00pm, at Sofia Event Center in Sofia will participate international scientists and neuropsychologists, world-class teachers trainers, child development experts, writers, musicians, digital learning and human potential development experts. Keynote speakers at the Conference will be international experts like Dr. Steve Hudges, President of the American Board of Pediatric Neuropsychology and Chair of the Global Research Committee, Judith Orion, AMI Director of Training, and Sandra Romenska, Director of training and Senior teaching Fellow in Leadership and Management at the University of St Andrews, Scotland, UK. You could find information about all speakers here.
As part of the conference program on 17 September, an exclusive screening of the documentary “Most Likely To Succeed” will be held in Bulgaria. The acclaimed film Most Likely to Succeed opens a discussion on how today’s school prepares children for the skills of the future and offers an inspiring look at what students and teachers are capable of—if we have the vision and courage to transform our schools.
