GETIdeas and EdSurge Innovation Perspectives Call for Proposals

The third annual Global Education Conference is a virtual gathering of globally minded educators and organizations that will take place online November 12-17, 2012. It is designed to connect students, teacher, education leaders and organizations with the goals of increasing communication, fostering collaboration, and promoting innovative ideas for inspiring action around the globe.

The Global Education Conference network currently has over 12,000 members from approximately 160 countries, and it is expected that several thousand people will be attending this upcoming event which will take place entire online and around the clock using the Blackboard Collaborate platform.

The Global Education Conference, along with Cisco’s GETIdeas.org and EdSurge, is pleased to announce a specialized conference strand that will focus on innovative and collaboration technologies with the potential to transform learning experiences for students around the globe. This strand will focus on companies offering tools and resources that support the mission of the conference and showcase global collaborations between groups.

Each highlighted company will conduct a virtual presentation within the 2012 Global Education Conference. In addition, they will have the opportunity to post a featured blog post or case study on GETIdeas.org about their work . These opportunities will increase the visibility of participating companies by giving them exposure to a variety of educators and other interested parties from around the world.

To participate, first create a conference proposal tagged 2012GETideas (click here for the call for proposals). This conference proposal should be in our system by 11:59 PM (GMT-6) on Monday, October 29.  The rest of the required materials are due by November 1, 2012. 

 

Next, submit the following by November 1, 2012 to Tony Wan of  EdSurge:

  • a one paragraph description of your company (150 words max.)
  • a high resolution company logo
  • a blog post on technology-driven innovation to be published in GETIdeas.org (500-1000 words)
  • a bio and high resolution photo of presenter or presenters
  • a PowerPoint slide deck to be used during your webinar for the Global Education Conference

 

Your blog post should:

  • be related to our theme of technology-driven innovation in education
  • not be a summary of your planned Global Education Conference session
  • reflect you or your team's ideas about innovation and entrepreneurship
  • be directed at an audience of primarily education leaders from around the world
  • include graphics and/or video (optional)

 

Do not feel obligated to address all of the following topics, but questions that might inspire your post could be:
  • How does your company blend learning theory with technology to create innovation?
  • How does your company involve educators and schools in the development of your product?
  • How are you going global with your product or involving the international community?
  • What education problem(s) are you addressing through your company's work?
  • How is your product unique and compelling in its approach to impacting education?
  • What is the role of Silicon Valley and other locations that embrace the entrepreneurial spirit in working with educators?

 

Entrants will be notified of acceptance by November 5, 2012 .

Participating companies are urged to put their products in meaningful contexts for the purpose of connecting with their educator audiences. Required blog posts and conference presentations should not be blatantly commercial, but should try to relate to the mission of the Global Education Conference and the overall theme of global innovation. Blog posts may include video and/or high res images and will be subject to review and approval by GETideas.org.

Here's the lowdown from EdSurge's newsletter:

CALLING STARTUPS WITH A GLOBAL VIEW: A WORLD'S EYE VIEW: For the third year, the essential Global Education Conference run by Steve Hargadon and Lucy Gray will fill the week of November 12-16 with an online jam session of thousands of educators from around the globe. This is a event seeks to connect educators and classrooms around the globe, with a strong dash of cultural awareness. This year, courtesy of Cisco's GETIdeas, there will be a special "technology-driven Innovation" track that will feature about two dozen product startups and/or organizations actively supporting international education collaboration. (Read the mission statement here.) This is not an environment for pitching products--but it rather a venue for discussing the value of international collaboration and the technologies that promote those connections. Those groups will lead 60-minute online sessions and get to post an essay on the GETideas.org blog. Want to apply? Drop a note to Tony@edsurge.com and tell us how you're promoting global collaboration and what your session will be about. Applications are due by October 29 -- so don't wait!
