The São Paulo campus of Avenues: The World School is proud to present the 2020 New School of Thought Institute conference, an opportunity for educators of all backgrounds and affiliations to come together for a deep dive into student-centered learning.

The institute is hosted by educators from Avenues São Paulo and designed for N-12 public and private school teachers, school-leaders, media and technology specialists, and anyone else who is interested in developing a deeper understanding of student-centered learning.

The 2020 conference will consist of two days of workshops and a daylong conference session.

Thursday and Friday (February 13-14)

8:00 am – 4:00 pm

Two-day deep dive into Avenues: The World School’s approach to student-centered learning.

  • Classroom observation
  • Peer-to-peer conversations with our faculty and staff
  • Hear the perspectives of Avenues students immersed in project-based environments
  • Workshops on how to take student-centered learning beyond the classroom
  • Capstone event where participants present their findings
  • Actionable next steps for participants’ own classrooms, schools and learning communities

Saturday (February 15)

In an all-day conference session with workshops, seminars, and simulations, participants will discover how to turn project and place-based learning initiatives into action for their own classrooms, schools and wider communities. Our objective is to:

  • Showcase how great educators put students at the center of dynamic learning spaces, engaging them in work that has purpose, integrity and impact
  • Provide participants with an opportunity for the practical application of these concepts with members of the Avenues student body
