We are pleased to announce the third annual Global Education
Conference, a free week-long online event bringing together educators
and innovators from around the world, will be held Monday, November 12
through Friday, November 16, 2012 (Saturday, November 17th in some time
zones). The entire conference will be held online using the Blackboard
Collaborate platform (formerly known as Elluminate/Wimba) with the
support of iEARN worldwide as the conference founding sponsor, who will
be running their annual international conference in conjunction with
환영! Seja bem-vindo(a)! Bienvenido!
The Global Education Conference is a collaborative, inclusive,
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.
Last year’s conference featured 340 general sessions and 18 keynote
addresses from all over the world with over 10,000 participant logins.
To attend this year's conference and to be kept informed of the latest
conference news and updates, please
join this network.
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, attendees will
challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the
world. Participants are encouraged to learn, question, create, and
engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context!
The Call for Proposals for the 2012 event opens May 15th. Presenters can
submit proposals for general sessions focused on one of four possible
tracks: Teacher Track; Student Track; Curricular Track; and Policy and
Leadership Track. Proposals should focus on ideas, projects, and
initiatives that promote global understanding and collaboration. While
the final deadline for submissions is
October 15, 2012 and presenters will be notified of acceptance on a rolling basis starting
July 15, 2012. (Keynote presentations are by invitation only; suggestions can be sent to Lucy Gray at firstname.lastname@example.org.)
