From the 17th to 21st November I participated in an amazing educational event called Global Education Conference. Even though this was the fifth such conference it was the first time for me. These are the ten sessions I participated in:
1.School on the Cloud
2.Develop your students' global IQ
3.Creating a global classroom
4.Speechcraft online: Connecting the Speakers Globally
5.Connecting Students to Language and Culture through a Culture Cafe -MAD Day from Syria makes a difference
6.Tastes Great! Less Filling! Urban high school students maximize global learning through iEARN Photojournalism 2.104 Heritage, Hunger and Food Security Program
7.Quality Education for Peace and Democracy
8.SPOTLIGHT: Social Entrepreneurship: The Student Voice - Sharon Brown-Peters
9.Building Essential 21st Century Skills Through Global Collaboration Projects
10.The Global Classroom Project: Stories & Project Launch 2014-15
The most amazing thing about this conference was that I was able to listen to engaged and enthusiastic teachers from all over the world, connect with them and learn from them. Being able to talk to teachers from Australia, USA and other countries was a real eye opener and a great experience. At the same time their workshops were very inspiring and allowed me to improve my own teaching. My head is full of great ideas that I hope to apply them in my classroom. It was a real a “toolbox of teaching ideas”.
The conference was run online and no matter where you were, you could choose from sessions that run almost 24/7. Personally, I wish I did not have to teach and could stay at home from the 17th to 21st of November. Juggling between fulltime job and the conference was challenging, but possible. I already look forward to 2015! The more teachers join this fantastic learning event, the better.
Hopefully, you will be one of the speakers or participants in 2015:)
