It has been an interesting year here at The Global Classroom Project, with a lot happening behind the scenes. Keeping this organisation alive for over four years has been a remarkable achievement, brought about through the dedication and hard work of volunteer teachers around the world.
As we start to plan for our new-look 2015-16 project, we’d like to take this opportunity to invite #globalclassroom teachers to join us at the International Society for Technology Education Conference in Philadelphia, USA from June 28-July 1. This will be the first time I attend this conference in person, and I am hoping to meet many of our project organisers and leaders face-to-face for the first time.

Call for Volunteers – Webinar Preparations (August 2015)
We are looking for volunteers to organise and host this year’s “Looking Forwards, Looking Back” project celebration webinars – in mid/late August 2015. These annual webinars are held in BlackBoard Collaborate, and enable international participant teachers, who can’t attend the ISTE Conference, to share their stories and experiences virtually. (This is what we did last year – 2013-14)
If you can help, could you please email globalclassroomorganisers AT gmail.com, or tweet @gcporganisers. Thankyou.
Global Classroom 2015-16 Update
After some lengthy, heartfelt discussions behind the scenes, we have decided to go forward with Global Classroom 2015-16, but in a smaller, more sustainable format. Please keep an eye on this blog for updates, and an invitation to join a planning webinar around September 2015.
Please remember that this project relies on the goodwill and expertise of volunteer teachers around the world. We will be needing your help and support next year.
