IB Global Conference, Vienna 2018

Thursday 04 October, 08:00 - Saturday 06 October, 17:30

Come and visit the GL Education stand (Stand 29) at this year’s IB Global Conference!

The 2018 IB Africa, Europe, Middle East Global Conference will take place from 4 – 6 October at the Austria Center Vienna. The theme for this year’s conference is ‘Shaping the Future’.

Join us in Vienna for three days of inspiring and engaging events and connect with fellow educators from all over the world.

International schools around the world use our assessments to help them accurately understand the abilities of all students, regardless of their primary language, to nurture their academic ability and wellbeing. The data is used by educators to:

  • personalise teaching and learning
  • benchmark and measure classroom progress
  • identify G&T and SEN learners
  • evaluate the effect of interventions.

To arrange a meeting with one of our International Consultants or request further information, email international@gl-education.com or call +44 (0)20 8996 3369.

Assessment data: the missing piece of the jigsaw in differentiation in the IB classroom

This session is aimed at schools that are looking for relevant and robust data to inform differentiation strategies and measure the effectiveness of teaching and learning at a student, cohort and whole school level.

The discussion will draw on case study material from international schools to explain how innovative schools are triangulating their data from multiple sources to identify and support specific needs of learners.

Illustrative cases will include the high-achieving but insecure student who needs to develop resilience; the EAL student with hidden literacy support needs and the disengaged who don’t have the toolkit to learn.


Date: Friday 5 October 

Time: 1pm - 2pm 

Room: Hall L1

Are attitudes holding your students back?

By looking at things from a student’s perspective we can understand what they feel capable of, and determine what support they need.

The Pupil Attitudes to Self and School survey provides benchmarked data that can provide a fresh perspective from the whole-school down to the individual student:

  • Do your students feel that they have the toolkit they need to learn?
  • Do you have a disengaged cohort?
  • Is a lack of self-belief holding back some of your students?

This session will explain how the reports answer this kind of question and outlines some interventions schools are using to address these challenges.


Date: Saturday 6 October

Time: 1pm - 2pm

Room: Hall L1
