The MARIO Framework helps special educators create their own personalized learning programs that are measured, ambitious, research-based & evidence-informed, innovative, and structured around one-to-one learning. Their graduate-level 10-week professional learning courses, MARIO 101 & MARIO 102, are proving to be invaluable to educators of all levels everywhere.
Philip Bowman, the founder of the MARIO framework and full-time learning support teacher at International School Bangkok, shares that “the MARIO Framework is providing the training and resources necessary to reimagine what special education is capable of. We are cultivating self-directed learners who flourish inside and outside the classroom.”
SENIA enjoys a long and successful relationship with Philip, as he helped set up the Thailand branch of SENIA International ten years ago and has actively been involved on the SENIA Thailand Executive Board ever since.
Recalling his first SENIA International conference in 2012, Philip says “I was so grateful to attend my first conference and have been filled with gratitude ever since. I’m convinced that there is no better way to grow as a special educator than from learning from other special educators.” Over the years, Philip has been a part of seven SENIA International conferences and helped host a number of local SENIA conferences within Thailand.
The MARIO Framework, and Philip Bowman, are taking a leading role in sponsoring the SENIA 2020 International conference because they believe “the SENIA conferences are vital to improving our collective efficacy. More than ever, we need to support each other whenever we can.”
SENIA International knows that our mission and vision is made possible by our members and Philip is a perfect example of this. We appreciate the MARIO Framework partnering with us and look forward to seeing them at the SENIA 2020 Virtual Conference: Bridging the Gap!
