Full Session Description (one paragraph minimum):
With mountains of resources available for Global Collaboration, elementary teachers often spend hours sifting through tools and practices to find the select few that will be successful for young learners. In this high-energy session, attendees learn about powerful web resources and best practices that are perfect for our youngest learners. With ideas for tools like Google Docs, Storybird, Voicethread, ePals, Skype, Flockdraw and Dabbleboard, participants will learn how to find other teachers and classes who are interested in collaborating, how to set-up 21st century learning activities that promote global awareness and real world problem solving, and easily implement these new tools in their classroom. In no time, elementary students can be blogging; digital storytelling; sharing videos, images, knowledge or skills; and even creating websites with other students across the classroom and around the world.

Is EngagingEducation.net a for profit group?
I need a reply to my question if you'd like to be considered for the 2012 conference. Thanks!
Sorry about that. I didn't see the first comment come through on my email.
EngagingEducation.net is my personal blog and resource website; the contents of which are offered for free. I am an independent consultant, speaker and author who performs contract work for schools, non-profit organizations and edtech companies. The content of this session is drawn from successful collaboration experiences as an elementary technology specialist and does not include promotional content for companies I have worked with.
Let me know if you have any other questions. :) I really enjoyed participating and presenting in the conference last year and look forward to another great experience.
