Webinar for Educators – Transforming Education for the 21st Century

Why does education need to embrace transformation? What is the relevance of education to industry, and how can education handle the increasingly rapid rate of technological change?

Screen Shot 2020-06-30 at 10.08.48

These are just some of the questions that will be explored by thought leaders and stakeholders from PwC, Microsoft, MEDE, the National Skills Council, other social partners and industry representatives. The event is targeted towards the education institutions and educators across both private and public learning organisations, and all participants will be actively involved in the discussions through highly interactive surveys and QA sessions. The webinar will provide exposure to technology complemented by practitioner best practice in the field of education. Given the knowledge sharing potential and technical nature of this session, the event will contribute 120 mins of continuous professional development (CPD) time to all educators.

The webinar will take place on Wednesday, 2nd July, from 9am – 11am. To view the complete agenda, and register for the event, kindly visit: https://www.pwc.com/mt/educationwebinar



A Farewell with a Difference from Dingli Primary School

The Scholastic Year 2019 – 2020 was certainly different from any other: the last term students and teachers did not attend school due to the Covid-19 pandemic; all teaching and learning was done online from mid-March onwards. That meant that schools could not organise the usual end-of-year activities to celebrate the achievements of the scholastic year. However, the staff at Dingli Primary School managed to give a final goodbye to their students, by organising a car-cade across the village, passing all the students’ houses. It was a great send-off for everyone and was even featured on national television. Click on the link below to read the article on TVM:

Tislima lit-tfal tas-sitt sena tal-iskola Primarja Mġarr

Fis-snin li għaddew it-tfal tas-sitt sena kienu jingħataw tislima qabel jitilqu mill-iskola primarja b’diversi attivitajiet. Din is-sena kien hemm ippjanat programm b’live in b’diversi attivitajiet fosthom treasure hunts u star gazing. Sfortunatment dan kellu jitħassar minħabba s-sitwazzjoni preżenti li ġabet magħha il-Covid 19. Għaldaqstant l-Amministrazzjoni tal-iskola bl-għajnuna ta’ diversi għalliema ħolqu treasure hunt virtwali bil-parteċipazzjoni tat-tfal tas-sitt sena. Kull grupp ta’ tfal ingħata l-istess sfidi permezz ta’ numru ta’ għalliema li ħadu ħsieb kull grupp. L-isfidi kienu nteressanti u maħdumin madwar l-interessi tat-tfal. L-istudenti kellhom jieħdu ritratti mal-pets tagħhom, jagħmlu xirjiet virtwali u jagħmlu eżerċizzji fiżiċi fost oħrajn.

Din l-esperjenza għalkemm unika fiċ-ċirkostanzi preżenti kienet opportunita biex l-istudenti jużaw il-ħiliet tagħhom fit-teknoloġija waqt li jsaħħu u jiftakru dak li tgħallmu f’suġġetti diversi saħansitra fil-Health and Safety u PSD. Ma’ dan il-lat edukattiv ma naqasx il-fatt li l-istudenti u l-għalliema ħadu pjaċir immens jiġru mal-ħin biex isolvu l-mistoqsijiet.
