Journey of Song with Gede Robi

The basis of this workshop is an introduction to the history of song as a way to carry a human rights message. Learn about the chain gangs of the peace movement to more contemporary songs of disenchantment and protest. Robi will also share about his own work creating songs with a powerful message, particularly in relation to recent work he has done with primary and high school students in Australia. He will also collaborate with workshop participants about ideas to create songs relevant to issues of personal importance in relation to being a changemaker. This workshop is open to teachers and students.

How Service Educators Help Students Learn

Ever wonder how teachers become masters at facilitating students' learning through service projects? What are the characteristics and practices of effective international school service educators? This workshop will address the qualities of effective global citizenship educators. Indicators will be provided for faculty and administrators in their work to support teachers' service facilitation as an approach to teaching and learning cognitive and affective skills.

Bystander Intervention techniques


with Angela Catherine Kilbane

I'm the Jakarta chapter leader of Hollaback. Hollaback is an international movement powered by local activists to end harassment in public spaces. I am a certified trainer by Hollaback and Green Dot. While my training was specifically about street and public harassment, the material is adaptable for a school setting (as the material originally created by Green Dot is about bullying). My hope would be that teachers attending this workshop would be able to then also train their students and community members about ways to safely intervene.  https://jakarta.ihollaback.org/bystander-intervention/ 


A Media Blueprint To  Create Change with Steve Sostak and Aaron Moniz

Inspired by public service media like National Public Radio, Futures Public Radio (FPR) is a student-led, community journalism platform at the International School of Beijing. In this workshop, participants will actively engage with the FPR site and walk away with tools for teaching investigative journalism and meaningful podcasting. Lastly, participants will create a blueprint for developing an FPR member station or similar platform for their schools or classrooms.
