A growing number of students in international schools speak a different language at home or in their communities. What are the myths and realities of the multilingual learner (MLL)? Join Eowyn Crisfield in a webinar where she explores the dual nature of learning language and content simultaneously. You will take away some simple ways to support your MLL students in the four areas of challenge: - cognitive development, - literacy, - content learning, - confident and socialisation.

"It is this event that I look forward to most in the year. Anything that challenges you to move out of your comfort zone is always a good experience." - Brian Roach, Bucharest Verita International School This year, Pearson will be a Gold Sponsor at the ECIS Annual Leadership Conference which is dedicated to learning experience for leaders in the international schools community. The theme for this year will be Exponential Learning. Are we experiencing a move from a deceptively slow pace of learning to a disruptively fast pace? We are in the midst of deceptive growth, exploding into an era of exponential learning. From artificial intelligence, augmented reality, virtual reality, and data science to synthetic biology, nanotechnologies, networks, and more, schools are environments for cultivating and constructing an appropriate intersection with society, in order to ensure our young people (and our own institutions) are at the forefront of relevance. This new era of exponential learning is the time for schools to lead. It will require us to engage in some deep thinking – and take tsunami-sized decisions – with regard to our programmes, offerings, and an explicit focus on our humanity.
