For too long English-only policies within international schools have upheld colonial ideals. As educators, we have the responsibility to disrupt harm within systems and build more loving, nurturing spaces where our students can be their authentic selves.
We have the opportunity to cultivate dynamic multilingual ecosystems within our classes, through the open-hearted and strategic use of translanguaging. This March I will be traveling to Nairobi, Kenya to facilitate a two day workshop on translanguaging.This interactive workshop will explore the dynamic translanguaging practices of our students, as well as the pedagogy to foster multilingual ecosystems within our classes where all our students can thrive.
The aim of this event is to create a community of practitioners dedicated to linguistic equity as they learn how to cultivate dynamics multilingual classroom ecosystem with translanguaging pedagogies.
