'Shaping the Future' was the theme of this year's International Baccalaureate (IB) Conference in Singapore and it was inspiring to see more than 1800 IB educators and heads gather from around the world to talk about the future of education and celebrate the 50th year of the IB.
Keynote speakers included Taryn Bond Clegg whose challenge to "be a rebel not a robot" centred around her own experiences of moving from a compliant educator to one who challenges the system to better meet the needs of students in a rapidly changing world.

Other speakers included Meagan Fallon who spoke about the incredible social enterprise of Barefoot College, "which connects rural communities to solar, water, education, professions and advocacy to help communities and individuals take control of their lives and the wellbeing of their communities." This organisation trains women from around the world with little to no formal education to be solar electrical engineers in their desert campus in Rajasthan.
UNIS Hanoi faculty Angela Meikle (PYP Coordinator), Cindy Barnsley (MYP Coordinator) and Josh Smith (PYP) also presented to IB colleagues on initiatives in our learning community. Angela and Cindy shared UNIS Hanoi's professional development model that aims to increase teacher agency and inquiry to better impact student learning. Josh Smith's presentation on "Education and Sustainability" shared UNIS Hanoi's use of the UN's Sustainable Development Goals as a model for service and action and encouraged school leaders and educators to consider how inquiry can lead to responsible action in their school contexts.
