Happy 2018 from the CAWS Board of Directors! We hope the start of the new year has been successful for you and your students. This will be an eventful year for CAWS. We are helping the IB celebrate its 50th year anniversary by being the host Association at the 2018 Summer Global Conference in San Diego beginning July 26th. at the beautiful Bayfront Hilton Hotel. Registration is available for that event on the IB website and we hope to see many of you in attendance to help us welcome the IB to our great city. Register by Jan 31 for a discount.
February 26th is the date for our Spring Seminar to be held at the Sheraton Grand Hotel in Sacramento. Ken Simon, Chief Learning Officer from World Savvy, will focus on the question, Why Global Competence? Connections will be made to careers of the future, changing demographics of our world and social and environmental challenges both local and global which will affect our students. The agenda is for educators of all IB programs, featuring interactive sessions where participants will engage as learners to produce an action oriented solution to a global issue. Register so that you don’t miss out on this exciting day of discovery. We hope to see you there. The registration form is on the website as well as the agenda for the day. A block of rooms has been set aside for our participants and the hotel registration information provided.
