Charting the Course of Teaching and Learning in a Networked World

A message to all members of The Future of Education

It's almost here!  The second annual Global Education Conference is a week-long, and free, event bringing together educators and innovators from around the world.  The conference features sessions and keynote addresses to inspire global connections, projects, ideas, and action in an increasingly connected world.

We'll be streaming live online November 14-18, 2011 (the actual session links will get posted this weekend).  The entire conference will be held online for free using the Blackboard Collaborate platform (formerly known as Elluminate/Wimba). The session descriptions, forum discussions, and session calendars (one for each of the world's 36 time zones!) are available at http://www.globaleducationconference.com. Look at last year's reviews, check out this year's awesome sessions and keynotes, and get yourself set for a ton of fun and learning--join us if you can!

See you online!

More Information:

The Global Education Conference is a collaborative, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organizations at all levels. It is designed to significantly increase opportunities for building education-related connections around the globe while supporting cultural awareness and recognition of diversity. The conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems. Through this event, it is our hope that attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Let us learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context!

Keynote addresses this year will be given by noted thought leaders Alan November Chris Dede, Howard Gardner, Fernando Reimers, Esther Wojcicki, and many more. Conference sponsors include Brainpop and iEARN-USA  Partner organizations are numerous as well and many will be presenting their work throughout the conference. Last year’s conference featured 387 sessions and 60 keynote addresses from 62 countries with over 15,000 participant logins. Sessions were held in multiple time zones and multiple languages over the five days, and are currently archived as a standing educational resource at http://globaledcon.weebly.com/recordings.html. For further information, please join our network at http://
