Two schools from the Philippines will play vital roles in what is billed as the “world’s biggest education conference.”
The schools have been chosen for their expertise and commitment to key areas of education: the Alem Elementary School of Apayao has been chosen for its commitment to deepening family and community engagement, while the Xavier School in San Juan City, was selected for its use of education technology.
Each school will be part of a showcase of 100 schools which will gather online to share expertise and best practices in the inaugural World Education Week, from October 5 to 9, in support of the United Nations Sustainable Development Goal on Quality Education (SDG 4)  
The hundred schools have been hand-picked for their expertise across a range of educational themes, such as enhancing employability and life-skills; deepening family and community engagement; the use of technology; a focus on wellbeing; and promoting the science of learning and teaching. Each will share their wisdom to an online audience expected to reach 100,000 worldwide. The ambition driving World Education Week is to accelerate progress to achieve SDG 4, a commitment designed to ensure inclusive and equitable quality education and lifelong learning for all.
World Education Week is an effort by thirty civil society organisations coming together after the record breaking T4 conference on May 30 that was attended by over 100,000 teachers.
The event will be hosted from the World Education Week website, with registration opening from Sept. 1. – Press release
