October is upon us and we’ve compiled another set of resources to help you connect your classroom to the world. Additional opportunities worth exploring have been outlined in our August and September articles here on Medium.
Standing resources for exploring globally connected teaching and learning include our Global Education Resources page and our Global Events and Celebrati.... You need to be a member of our global education community, the Global Education Conference Network, to access these pages.
Our next major event will be our 8th annual Global Education Conference held entirely online and around the clock between November 13–16, 2018. The call for proposals is now open, and we hope you will join us as a presenter and as an attendee. The GEC is not an ed tech conference nor a general education conference; all proposals must relate to globally connected teaching and learning. If you are curious about presenting, we highly encourage you to take a look at archived presentations from previous years.
Also, Steve Hargadon and I will be hosting a Global Education Day event at TCEA on February 5th. This event will be open to people who are participating in premium workshops at the conference. Let us know if you are planning to be in Austin, Texas, for this conference. We are excited to bring this event to TCEA members!
Here is our October collection of information requests, events and opportunities organized by others that we’ve recently noticed. If you have something to share, post details in our discussion forum, and we’ll get the word out in November!
Finally, we held our first VIRTUAL Global Education Fair on September 21. You can still browse information and view videos posted by our exhibitors or contact them directly by visiting our online exhibit hall.
Thanks for reading and we hope you will pass this information on to potentially interested friends and colleagues. Stay tuned for our next article which will focus on our recent Global Collaboration Day celebration!
