      Take a bit of your time and discover what is going on in the world of
      Education. All sessions will be recorded so if you miss one, you can always
      listen to it later.
      I will be co-presenting on Wednesday evening (20:00 local time) for Merlot
      World Languages on multilingual educational resources.
      Warm regards,
      The Official Social Network of the Global Education Conference
      A message to all members of The Global Education Collaborative

      *Please pass the following information on to your colleagues. Also, use the
      invite link in the navigation bar of the Global Education Collaborative to
      invite others to join our work! See you online this week!*
      *Week-long, world-wide event features 387 sessions and 60 keynote addresses
      focused on education technology and global classroom initiatives*

      The inaugural Global Education Conference, a week-long event bringing
      together educators and innovators from around the world, will be held
      Monday, November 15 through Friday, November 19. The entire conference will
      be broadcast online for free using the Elluminate platform.

      The Global Education Conference, a collaborative and world-wide community
      effort organized by the Global Education Collaborative and Classroom2.0, is
      aimed at increasing opportunities for globally-connecting education
      activities and initiatives. The conference will feature 387 sessions and 60
      keynote addresses from 62 countries. Sessions will be held in multiple time
      zones and multiple languages over the five days.

      �There are few barriers left to prevent classrooms from connecting to others
      in terms of technology. The real barriers may be our priorities in education
      which are not focused on developing global awareness and global competencies
      in students.� said Lucy Gray, conference Co-chair and founder of the Global
      Education Collaborative. �In order to participate in a knowledge-based
      economy, students must be able to connect, communicate and collaborate, and
      teachers must model this for their kids.�

      Sessions throughout the week will be divided among six different tracks:
      Teacher Track; Student Track; Curriculum Track; Policy and Leadership Track;
      Global Issues Track; Learning 2.0 Track. The keynote presentations will
      address a number of issues in 21st Century education and globally connected

      �Nothing quite on this scale has been conducted before, but we now have the
      technology via video-conferencing, email and other digital exchanges to
      truly make classrooms global and connect teachers and students around the
      world,� said Steve Hargadon, conference Co-Chair and creator of the
      Classroom 2.0 social network for educators. �We hope the conference will
      help educators get started with global projects and become more aware of
      each other�s work.�

      The Global Education Conference is an effort of over 90 partner
      organizations and 120 international education advisors. All sessions and
      keynotes are free and open to the public through online participation.
