  • The Global Education Conference Network – GlobalEdCon: Connecting Educators and Organizations Worldwide

    Global Education Conference starts Monday – get in there and start putting these on your schedule. Some great sessions. I'm only doing one this year on Monday night at 10pm where Julie and I will share the most important stories from Flat Classroom projects around the world centering around 4 aspects: the Handshake, Creative Co-Creation, Celebration, and creative “flattening” (including other types of people besides students in projects.)  There are a lot of incredible sessions, so join in! “Our free, online conference starts Monday, November 12 and runs around the clock for five days. No registration is required but we do encourage you to join this network for email updates and to connect with presenters and participants. To see the conference schedule, or to attend a session or keynote, click HERE for the “Sessions and Schedule” page and follow the instructions to choose the page for your time zone. Information on using the conference software platform, Blackboard Collaborate, is also on this page. To comment on sessions or connect with the presenter or other attendees, see the discussion forum posts under GEC Accepted Proposals. If you have questions, please post them in the chat room (this shows up at the bottom of your page if you are registered and logged in) and people may respond if they are online at the time. Better yet, you can also post questions in our discussion forum.”
