We measure what we value, and we value what we measure. In this workshop, data and assessment expert, Matthew Savage, will explore the different ways in which we can tune into our students’ wellbeing.

In this keynote, Ewan will share lessons from undertaking more strategy in a year than most directors get to do in a lifetime, through hundreds of strategic planning projects across 72 countries.
Participants will work together to better understand how to build positive data cultures in their schools, the systems and structures to help them to get there, and technology tools like Looker Studio (formerly Google Data Studio) to go beyond the barriers they currently face. Data in any organization is a support tool allowing members to better carry out their core mission, vision, and values. The highest quality schools use data to cultivate a culture of curiosity where teachers and teams regularly discuss how they can do even better for their students.

This workshop will offer a refreshing, new assessment paradigm, to complement and challenge the orthodoxy of traditional assessment in schools - one that is based on listening and responding to the individual story of each student.
Interdisciplinary learning and project-based work succeeds when it pushes students into making connections between complex new knowledge. In turn, though, that demands greater clarity around the thinking skills we want to see learners use. Those thinking skills are best taught, rather than caught.
