ACAMIS Technology Conference
Saturday & Sunday, October 15-16, 2022
The British School of Beijing, Shunyi
Theme: Empower Learning
Learning is the spark that leads to knowledge and understanding, character development, new ideas and global impact. As educators we have the privilege of experiencing first-hand the exciting journey our students take as they struggle through problems, collaborate with peers, marvel at their own creations and share their innovations with others. We have all experienced a great deal globally these past 2 years, and we are excited to connect as a community to hear powerful voices of courage, resilience, growth and development, as well as leadership. This year, at the ACAMIS Technology conference we will showcase a mosaic of voices across our region, sharing their stories to Empower Learning.

New - CALL FOR STUDENT SPARK PRESENTERS!
This year we add a Student Spark Presentation Session for students to share their voices based on this year's theme on Empower Learning. They may present themselves or they are welcome to apply to co-present with another student.
The Student Spark presentation format is a 5-7 minutes long presentation with 20 slides and with the slides advancing automatically every 15 seconds, forcing speakers to get the point, fast. It's such a fast format that it's best thought of as a performance, rather than a lecture.
We are seeking student spark presentation proposals that have a clear link to aspects of this theme. This could include stories related to:
- Service projects
- SDG goals
- Student leadership
- Student voice and choice
- Setting goals
- and many more.
Our hope is to inspire the community with stories from student champions across the region, to further inspire innovation and change in our classrooms.
