The 2018 Leaps of Knowledge conference themed ‘Power Up’ is a sequel to last year’s conference themed ‘Level Up.’ More than 1,000 educators and parents in total from all over Malaysia attended the conference. The aim of the conference was to recognise educators as superheroes (Gamechangers) and empowering them to continue raising the bar in education and encouraging 21st Century teaching and learning.
The first keynote speaker was Kiran Bir Sethi, founder of Design for Change (DFC), the largest movement of change by children and Riverside School, Ahmedabad, India. DFC is now in over 60 countries, impacting 2.2 million children and 65,000 teachers. Kiran spoke about empowering children by character building and design thinking.
The second keynote speaker was Cheryl Ann Fernando, the inspirational teacher portrayed in the Malaysian film ‘Adiwiraku’. Cheryl shared her experience as a teacher in a rural school and how teachers can empower their students to reach their highest potential.
