I'm excited for the start of the Global Education Conference. I always come away with inspiration, new knowledge and connections to amazing people. It is also one space I have found that my worlds can collide - where my passion for global education, technology and social justice can be fed. And this year I suspect my spirituality will get a boost too with Karen Armstrong's keynote - How to Change the World.

Here some sessions I hope I can find time to attend this year and just a small sampling of what's available (times are GMT-5):
