Global Education Conference 2010

GEC_AmericasAs a member of the Global Education Conference Educator’s Advisory Panel I would like to invite you to participate in our free online conference on global education.
The 2010 Global Education Conference will be held November 15 – 19, 2010, and is online and free.  Details about the conference are available at http://www.globaleducationconference.com.  The conference currently has scheduled 50 keynote addresses and over 300 general sessions  from 62 countries.  Sessions will be held in multiple time zones focusing on teachers, students, curriculum, policy/leadership and global issues.

To view the conference schedule go to: http://www.globaleducationconference.com/schedule.html
and select your timezone to view the schedule within your timezone. This link will take you to a complete schedule with all sessions. You can also insert sessions directly into your google calendar.

Sessions can also be viewed by tracks (Student, Teacher, Curriculum, Policy & Leadership, Global Issues, and Learning 2.0) by going to the conference webpage and selecting ‘sessions’, then the specific track you are interested in.

All sessions will be recorded and posted on the Global Education website, so if you see a workshop that your schedule doesn’t allow you to attend, you can always view it later. I will be posting this link after the conference is completed.

The sessions will all take place online, within Elluminate.
