The workshop focussed on the learning journey at The British School of Beijing, Shunyi; transforming teaching and learning using new technology and harnessing students’ creativity. The workshop began with a brief presentation on 21st century skills which was followed by an interactive session where practical solutions to the issue of embedding 21st century skills were discussed. 

There was also a discussion about High Performance Learning, a model for nurturing giftedness and creativity in school and how such a programme can constitute a completely new approach to learning. 

The workshop was well attended by school leaders and educational consultants.
