Free Online Global Education Conference Going On Now

The 2010 Global Education Conference is being held November 15 - 19, 2010, online and free. http://www.globaleducationconference.com/ Sessions will take place in multiple time zones and multiple languages over the five days. For those "tweeting," the hashtag is #globaled10.

The conference is a collaborative and world-wide community effort to significantly increase opportunities for globally-connecting education activities. The goal is to help you make connections with other educators and students, and for this reason the conference is very inclusive and also is provides broad opportunities for participating and presenting. While we have an amazing list of expert presenters and keynote speakers, we will also have some number of presenters who either have not presented before or have not presented in Elluminate--please encourage and support them, as they are likely to be a little nervous!

There is no formal registration required for the conference, as all the sessions will be open and public, broadcast live using the Elluminate platform, and available in recorded formats afterwards. There is a limit of 500 live attendees for any given session. Links to watch the sessions will be posted the weekend before the conference begins, in the "Sessions" and "Schedule" pages, and recording links will be listed in the session descriptions soon after each day's sessions.

While we have worked hard to reach out worldwide through our 123-member international educator advisory board, and have international leadership teams to encourage broad participation, we recognize that this first year of the conference is heavily weighted toward sessions in English and with presenters from North America. It is our sincere hope to greatly expand this in the future.
