Welcome to our monthly blog post highlighting happenings in the global education community! If you would like your news highlighted here, make sure to post in our main community’s discussion forum, and we will include it next month. Past blog posts can be found here. 

Steve Hargadon and myself (Lucy Gray) are looking forward to upcoming event which include the CoSN/UNESCO Global Symposium on Educating for Digital Citizenship and our Global Leadership Summit hosted in partnership with ASCD. The roster of speakers at both events are amazing! 

Also, don’t forget about Global Leadership Week which will take place March 19–23, 2018! This is an opportunity for educators to highlight and advocate for global programs and initiatives that support the development of global competence in students and teachers. Host your own event, exhibit at our second virtual Global Education Fair, or simply attend the Fair and assorted events. We also are co-hosting a Global Leadership Summit at ASCD’s Empower18 conference in Boston on March 23rd. 

We also maintain a calendar of global education events, and submissions are welcome. To see this and other resources, join our community and then click on this link (you have to be a member of the GEC to see these resources).

Below you will find a collection of resources and opportunities that we’ve noticed this month! Please share this information widely with friends and colleagues. Thanks!
