The 7th Annual Global Education Conference
The Global Education Conference Network is pleased to announce its seventh annual global collaboration extravaganza. The Global Education Conference will take place around the clock during International Education Week (November 13-16, 2016) featuring thought leaders from the world of education and beyond. The Global Education Conference is completely free to attend and all events take place online in webinar format.
We invite you to join 23,000 GEC community members from 170+ countries and actively participate in more than 200 sessions focused on international education topics. Together, we can connect K-20 classrooms to the world and prepare students for their globalized futures.
The mission of this conference is exclusively focused on globally connected teaching and learning. The Global Education Conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators, classrooms and organizations with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems, particularly around education for all.
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!
