    Network Description

    The Engage with Asia Network responds to the need to increase knowledge and awareness Asia in our schools. Through inter-school partnerships, students, teachers and schools in general will interact with each other through the creation of curriculum resources. Students from both schools prepare and share these resources online, via contemporary and appropriate platforms that will enhance communication and intercultural understanding between CESA schools and schools in Asia.

    Currently, 14 inter-school partnerships have been formed between CESA schools and schools in China, Indonesia and Japan. Partnerships with schools in other countries would be welcome to consider and encouraged to be developed as part of schools’ involvement in this Engage with Asia Network.

    In 2022, the Engage with Asia Network will:

    • develop students, teachers and other school leaders’ intercultural understanding capability (ACARA GC)
    • support students in developing intercultural and global competency (CESA KC)
    • increase respectful relationships between students/teachers/school leaders  in different geographical settings
    • promote ethical and responsible usage of ICTs (ACARA GC)
    • develop models of effective and sustainable school partnerships with contemporary co-constructed curriculum, student agency to be shared sector wide (CESA CIF)
    • address the Blueprint Paper, in that there is an understanding that all children are capable of successfully learning languages and cultures
    • address the CESA Strategy by encouraging schools to express their beliefs by adopting an inter-faith approach
    • address the Living Learning Leading Framework by encouraging the development of thriving global citizens, capable and successful multilingual learners and leaders in intercultural communication for the world God desires
    • promote the usage of ICTs to facilitate the formation of this Network that includes rural, isolated schools.
    • provide in-situ PL to school staff to strengthen a student-centred culture.

    What will actually happen as part of being a member of the Engage with Asia Network 2022:

    • participating schools will develop an inter-school partnership and a partnership plan based on the curriculum to be taught and agreed by both sites in CESA and in Asia
    • the partnership plan is developed by teachers in both countries
    • an appropriate e-platform is agreed to facilitate student to student, teacher to teacher, class to class and principal to principal communication
    • students will co-construct curriculum (units of work and related materials / resources) in partnership with their partners in Asia
    • student agency and student leadership will be central to this work as they develop materials to be discussed and shared online by students, thus demonstrating their agency and leadership
    • learners will decide on the structure of the online connections and will lead the sessions from the beginning to the end of each one (1 or 2 per term).

    Collaborative interactions take place in English, Chinese, Japanese or Indonesian and also in Pinyin - romanised Mandarin and in character), mixing with the cultural aspects of the learning taking place.
