Global Education Day, our annual meet-up for global educators, takes place at the International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE) on Sunday, June 24th, from 2 - 5pm at the convention center. This is a free and participatory event, featuring inspirational ignite talks by noted educators and organizations working to connect classrooms, as well as round-table discussions in which educators showcase specific examples of global projects and initiatives.
More information on Global Education Day can be found at https://www.globaledmeetup.com. This event is very popular and always has a wait-list. ISTE has asked us to change our registration procedures this year because of security and badging concerns, so please note the following:
Global Education Day will remain a FREE event. However, you will need to pay for the ISTE conference in order to attend Global Education Day. You will need to add "Global Education Day" to your ISTE registration at https://conference.iste.org/2018.
Right now, there are about 175 people already registered with ISTE to attend Global Education Day at ISTE. We have about 75 spots remaining, so it is essential that you register as soon as possible if you want to attend Global Education Day.
There will be a waiting list put into place once ISTE has about 250 registrants for Global Education Day through their system.
If you register through ISTE for Global Education Day and cannot attend for any reason, make sure to remove Global Education Day from your registration through ISTE.
Information about signing up to facilitate roundtables, lead ignite talks and participate in the global resources smackdown will be sent to those who register with ISTE around May 1, 2018.
We will be streaming this event via our Facebook page: https://www.facebook.com/globaledcon and will be making resources gathered from Global Education Day available publicly on the day of the event. “Like” our page on Facebook for updates and join our community at http://globaleducationconference.org.
