The iEARN International Teachers Conference and Youth Summit: July 1-6, 2013 in Doha, Qatar. Each year (since 1994) educators and youth from over 70 countries come together in a different country to share how they have used connective technologies in the classroom and after school programs. The theme of the 2013 conference will focus on the use of technologies in education to reach out, learn and build a better world together.
The conference will cover topics such as environment, cultural diversity and the use of Information and Communication Technologies in the classroom. Educators and students worldwide will be able to attend plenary sessions, deliver or attend a variety of workshops to further develop their knowledge and skills, share experiences, discover innovative ways to use ICTs
, and connect with their peers across the world. Registrations have been received from over 60 countries so far. Housing ($55/night) is the only in-country expense, with iEARN-Qatar paying for all meals and other conference expenses. http://www.iearn2013.org/
