Here are some more of the session descriptions for the presentations I attended during the Global Education Conference 2013  with links to some of the websites and programs that were mentioned and a collage of images.


Anne Mirtschin from Hawkesdale in rural Victoria gave an excellent keynote session and three other presentations.  I attended all but one of them and was so impressed with her wealth of experience and global connections and her enthusiasm and dedication to her students and to encouraging other teachers to become participants in global projects.
All her sessions were enjoyable and interactive and encouraged the participants to connect with each other and keep sharing after the Global Education Conference 2013 is over.
She certainly deserves the praise given to her by another keynote presenter, Julie Lindsay,
 “Anne is THE global collaboration guru!”

Teaching and Learning Across the Globe

Full Session Description: Full Session Description: Join us to learn some of short, simple activities that we are doing to facilitate collaborative experiences for K - 3 students to help students see themselves as part of a global community. This session will describe some examples of projects incorporating music, art, and poetry that we have completed with our K - 3 students in a school in Australia and the US, promoting friendship, awareness of the similarities and differences in our school communities and climate. We will share projects incorporating Voicethread, Google Presentation, Google Hangout, Skype and Scratch.

The World is My Classroom

Although the classroom may be our world, the world can by our classroom. Students need to be equipped with the skills, knowledge and understanding that will enable them to engage effectively with and prosper in an increasingly globalised world. Technology provides students and teachers with an amazing power and opportunity to gain knowledge and experiences beyond the textbook. It breaks down all physical and social barriers. We can connect, collaborate and create in both synchronous and asynchronous time globally with students, classes, teachers, experts and community members. This presentation will share some stories from an innovative, practising classroom teacher and will provide a glimpse into what can be achieved, how it can be achieved and the amazing resultant outcomes that are now possible when learning extends beyond the classroom walls. It will also cover an array of useful tools for global interactions, the challenges faced and means for overcoming these challenges and provide useful resources. Teaching and learning globally will create the need for new competencies. What might these be? Please join this session and join in the conversations.
