I wonder if you could help. I've been contracted to do a background paper for the next UNESCO Global Monitoring Report on SDG 4.7 and how teacher education (including ITE and CPD) supports global learning. I'm wanting to use the GEC as example of CPD / teacher support and wonder if I could ask you a couple of questions about the network. If you are interested please email me on: email@example.com
This is indeed amazing. I must admit internet is no more of stranger than we used to be in the late 2000's. From the devices to tablets to Computers or notebooks, everyone craves to be on a social media network. No wonder telecommunication companies likeOrange, Airtel or MTN have been letting their users get access to this service. So it would be fair to say most Ugandans especially elite, youths, town dwellers and few in the villages are connected on the internet.
However the issue of internet speeds still remains.
All generally said...we are good to go and crave for those speeds...The Sky is the Limit when you are connected!
Thank you for the opportunity to present at this year's GEC. I believe we were both at this year's Google Summit at GBN, but I didn't get a chance to talk to you. I love working with Judi! Glad to hear we have so many common connections. I enjoy following you on twitter!

I was a member of the International Committee and moderated a session during the Global Education Conference week. I was wondering - do we get any sort of certificate for being moderators or part of the International Committee?
Thanks for your great work and for making possible this fantastic network experience,
