Join us at #globaled13 for stories from the #globalclassroom

The Global Classroom Project is proud to be an Official Partner of the Global Education Conference 2013, which starts Monday this week (Nov 18), and runs through to November 22! This is an amazing FREE online (virtual) conference where thousands of teachers, from all over the world, come together to share, celebrate, and reflect on stories of global collaboration and #globalclassrooms.

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 organizations 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 400 general sessions and 20 keynote addresses from all over the world with over 13,000 participant logins. To attend this year’s conference and to be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, please
