The 5th annual Global Education Conference (GEC) will be held November 17-21, 2014. Across the world many learners involved in global education will come together to share new ideas and encourage global interactions.


GEC is organised by Lucy Gray and Steve Hargadon who set up the logistics and technology scaffold for the event to take place. They do this in conjunction with many passionate volunteers who help organise, moderate, tutor, and support all aspects of the live, online and free event.


As in past years students have been invited and encouraged to participate as presenters and audience. The voice of young people in a global event such as this is indisputably valuable. The ideals of connected learning determine we must be inclusive and the need for better pathways to learning dictate we must hear about new global connections and collaborations. The vision of what I call 'flat' learning is that all participants have an equally important story to tell us, and it is important we seek out these stories and give them a platform to be told.


This year we have renewed with vigour our invitation for students to present at the GEC. We invite students independently and with their teachers to consider sharing activities that connect you and your learning environment with the world. This could be through a designed curriculum activity, or a student initiative, or an organisation that supports students to connect, identify issues and search for solutions.


This year I am spear-heading the Student strand of the GEC and would love to hear from anyone who is interested in putting their ideas and activities and achievements in global education, global awareness, global collaboration and more into a presentation proposal.


The deadline for proposals is November 15 - but I would love to hear from you before then!
