BIS Business Community (BBC)
Thank you for attending the BBC September 12th, 2012 Gathering!
On Sep. 12th we had our 1st BBC gathering for this school year. It was our 8the gathering and this is the 4th year of BBC operation. Ron Ritchhart, from the Harvard School of Education, gave us a presentation regarding ‘Cultures of Thinkers’ and how they stimulate LEARNING in a culture of thinkers. Mr. Ritchhart also shared with us his "10 Apps" for parents that can help implement the principles of "Culture of thinkers" at home.
There were over 50 people attending the presentation and feedback was very positive. As always we followed the evening with a buffet dinner and spent time enjoying each others’ company.
Unfortunately there were quite a few people who registered for the event but did not show up or notify that they would not be joining. Due to the large number of "non show", we had to ask people to pay in order to cover the buffet cost. In the future we will ask your help to avoid such inconvenience happening. For those of you who attended and also for those who did not, please find attached the 10 Apps recommended by Ron Ritchhart.
Thank you for your interest in BBC and see you in the next BBC gathering.
