What do you get when you have a famous freestyle rapper; a world-leading magician; an astrophysicist YouTube star; a classical English actor; and a contemporary French music duo? The 2021 St Christopher’s School Future Learning Summit!
The St Christopher’s School Future Learning Summit is an exciting educational, immersive and interactive online experience and the first of its kind in the Kingdom of Bahrain.
Proudly sponsored by HSBC Bank Middle East Limited Bahrain, Batelco and Springring, this unique, ‘family fun day in’ event will take place on Friday, 19th March 2021 and is designed for students, families and educators from Bahrain and all over the world.
“Following the huge success of our previous Future Learning Summits and the disappointment of cancelling last year’s due to COVID-19 restrictions, we are delighted to announce FLS 2021 as a fully online event,” said Gavin Boyle, Director of Learning at St Christopher’s School. “This year, FLS will consist of exciting practical and interactive sessions with speakers from around the globe. The aim of the event is to inspire, motivate, empower and connect students, families and educators with global experts to explore what it takes to be truly Future-ready in the modern world.”
Chris Russell, CEO of HSBC in Bahrain said: “This event once again demonstrates agile thinking and innovation with its move online. For HSBC these are two important qualities for building future skills and we are proud to invest in education that fosters these qualities. HSBC is dedicated to supporting quality educational programmes that will develop a talent pool of young innovative and entrepreneurial talents.”
FLS 2021 will explore new and innovative ways of learning.
In one session, we will explore how magicians create seemingly impossible feats and how this can be applied in the classroom and in our own creative pursuits. This keynote explores the techniques such as the guiding of attention; the framing of perception; and the staging of surprises.
