It’s that time of the year again when I plug the annual Global Education Conference, a free week-long online event bringing together educators and innovators from around the world. It will be held on Monday 17th November through to Friday 22nd November in multiple languages and multiple time zones.
The entire virtual 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. The Global Education Conference is a collaborative, inclusive, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organisations 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 200 general sessions and 19 keynote addresses from all over the world with over 8,000 participant logins. The conference sessions are free to join.
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!
