Honored and Humbled: GELS Conference Update

Away we go!  The Global Education Leadership Summit is on and we are thrilled with how it is coming together.  We might even say we feel a bit humbled and honored as well.


The honored feelings arise from the quality of innovative schools flying to Bangkok to attend the summit. These names include:

  • Think Global School
  • Green School of Bali
  • Singapore American School
  • International School Services
  • Ormiston College
  • The Hawken School
  • The Harbour School
  • High Tech High
  • Orestad Gymnasium School
  • American School of Bombay
  • HangZhou Chinese International School

From experiential learning, to design, project-based learning and social entrepreneurship, these schools represent a tremendous variety of organizations who have successfully taken the steps forward to be leaders in preparing students for the future.


We find ourselves humbled to know we will all be learning and enjoy the work of Dr. Susie Wise, the founder and director of the k12Lab network at Stanford’s d.school.  

Dr. Wise is keynoting the conference and offering a Pre-Conference on Design Thinking in Schools.

The combination of the words Green and Bali may conjure up the idea of beauty that we have come to expect when we think about or visit Bali, Indonesia. The popular Bali Green School combines the beauty of Bali, a focus on sustainability and modern learning practices to create a unique student experience.

Please take a moment to listen to my conversation with Glenn Chickering, a founding faculty and head of upper school at the Green School.

Glenn is representing the Green School at the Global Education Leadership Summit.
