Novilo Conference day
Friday March 20th

Round 2: How to set up a school for the gifted
Discover the key pillars for designing a gifted school for today’s learner based on the Six Seconds’ model school in Silicon Valley–Synapse.  The philosophy and values behind the climate and curriculum will be shared and demonstrated. Everything from the need for flexible space and movable furniture to writing a curriculum that demands both independent and cooperative behaviors is illustrated.  Annual themes and how they are developed and expanded are shared. An example of how the annually selected change maker (last year’s change maker was Mr. Rogers) influences and impacts the program is highlighted. This session is infused with pictures and videos of the space, the environment, and the curriculum with illustrated lessons.  Assessment tools for teachers, students, and parents that ensure emotional and social growth for all will be identified. The ultimate outcome for such a school is a learner that is both a critical and creative problem solver and decision maker.

Round 3: How Assessment Contributes to Success!
An old adage in education advocates, “You get what you measure.”  This session discusses the challenges in today’s world due to anxiety and depression.  Using the case study approach and following one family’s journey, participants discover how personal knowledge of each other’s strengths and weaknesses can contribute to consistent personal growth and development in multiple areas.  This family’s use of the Six Seconds Toolbox of Assessments demonstrates how conflict-resolution skills can be intensified, how collaborate and cooperative sharing of chores can be encouraged, and how acknowledgement of individual idiosyncrasies can increase the joy of each separate member of the unit.  See how the mission of the family (i.e., empathy, service for others, and ethical behaviors) contributes to the success of each family member.

Keynote 16:15:  Change Makers Wanted!
This keynote highlights the need for change within today’s educational/work system.  Why is it that globally only about 30% of our students are engaged in their learning and only about 50% of employees are actively engaged in their jobs.  Discover the three keys to improved communication that results in improved involvement and engagement as well as increased achievement and performance. Participate in an empathy exercise that illustrates the value of connecting and leaves people yearning for more.  Become the friend, teacher, or leader you have always wanted to be.
