Students, teachers, and organizations will get online to celebrate global collaboration this coming week (September 17-21) as back-to-school season begins in the northern hemisphere.

During Global Collaboration Week, experienced global educators and other professionals design and host connective projects and events and invite public participation. The primary goals of this online event are to demonstrate the power of global connectivity in classrooms, schools, institutions of informal learning and universities around the world, and to introduce others to the tools, resources, projects, and networks that are available to educators today.

This is an opportunity for educators new to globally connected teaching and learning to participate in virtual activities designed by more experienced teachers. It's also a great way for educators running ongoing global projects to find project partners! We (Lucy Gray + Steve Hargadon, co-chairs of the Global Education Conference) are the calendar coordinators but not the direct conveners: that is, over 1000 people from 83 countries will participate in independently-planned events which we have then organized into a directory and in special calendars to allow these events to be seen in any time zone in the world.

This fourth-annual Global Collaboration event is a huge worldwide demonstration of the power of globally-connected learning. We encourage you to browse the event directory or the calendar and choose a compelling event to attend! Read directions and our website carefully to prepare. current list of the events is at the bottom of this post, but use the links below because new events will be added and others may change).
Here are some important links for you to keep handy:

Special thanks to Qatar Foundation International and TakingITGlobal, our sponsors this year!

See you online,

Lucy and Steve
