I am honored to share about the EdTech Summit Africa on the Global Education Conference. It is important to share what you have learned with the rest of the world because at the end of the day you change someone’s perspective on Education. I am a Global-Minded Educator because I see education beyond a classroom, a pen, and paper.
Here’s more info from the Global Ed Conference 2016 site:
The Global Education Conference (GEC) is a collaborative and world-wide community convening designed to significantly increase opportunities for globally-connecting educators and programs. Our primary event seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real-world problems. Through this conference and associated events, attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Participants are encouraged to learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context!
The Global Education Conference welcomes participants from all over the world and encourages presentations in any language. Training is provided in the conference platform, Blackboard Collaborate, and presenters are encouraged to take ownership of the presentation process when scheduling and promoting their sessions. The purpose of this event is to elevate and empower presenters to share their knowledge with a global audience.
We have partnered this year with iEARN to host their annual conference and youth summit in tandem with the Global Education Conference. iEARN typically hosts their conference in various conferences, but for logistical reasons, they’ve held it online twice with the GEC.
Additionally, the Global Education Conference Network organizes three other events. See http://globaledevents.com for more details.
