Innovation Seminar

Innovation In Education - Where is it taking our children?

STEAM has become a popular buzzword in Hong Kong in recent times, but what does it actually mean for our children’s education and for the future of the job market? We invite all interested parents, educators and those who are interested in education technology to attend a FREE panel discussion hosted at Stamford American School’s admissions office.

Even before its opening, Stamford American has been clear in its vision to be the leader in innovative education in Hong Kong. To help continue the discussion around innovation beyond our classrooms, we have invited some of Hong Kong top innovators to join a lively panel discussion moderated by our head of STEMinn Linda Cheung followed by a Q&A session.

The innovation forum will cover topics such as:

  • How can parents help support their children in today’s technologically driven landscape?
  • What can we do as parents/educators/worker to help ourselves and our children stay current? What skills does coding and learning with a STEM (Stamford STEMinn) curriculum give our children?
  • Are there any negative effects we need to consider from this new style of education? If so what can we do about them?
  • What are some of the top things schools should be focusing on to help children succeed in tomorrow’s world?

Date:     Thursday, February 1, 2018

Time:     6:00 PM - 7:30 PM

Venue:   Admissions Office, Suites 4005-4007, 40/F, Two Exchange Square, 8 Connaught Place, Central, Hong Kong
