Global Collaboration Week

Global Collaboration Week is Coming! (September 17 – 21, 2018)
Students, teachers, and organizations will get online to celebrate global collaboration during the week of September 17-21, as back-to-school season begins in the northern hemisphere. During this week, experienced global educators and other professionals will design and host connective projects and events and invite public participation. The primary goals of this whole day event are to demonstrate the power of global connectivity in classrooms, schools, institutions of informal learning and universities around the world, and to introduce others to the tools, resources, projects, and networks that are available to educators today. This is an opportunity for educators new to globally connected teaching and learning to participate in virtual activities designed by more experienced teachers. It’s also a great way for educators running ongoing global projects to find project partners!

Bienvenue! Welcome! 歡迎! Willkommen! Benvenuto!
환영! Seja bem-vindo(a)! Bienvenido!

We are pleased to announce the eighth annual Global Education Conference, a free online event bringing together educators and innovators from around the world. It will be held Monday, November 13 through Wednesday, November 16, 2017 (November 17th in some time zones). The entire virtual conference will be held online using the Blackboard Collaborate platform.

The Global Education Conference is a collaborative, inclusive, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organizations at all levels. It is designed to significantly increase opportunities for building education-related connections around the globe while supporting cultural awareness and recognition of diversity. To attend this year’s conference and to be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, please join this network.

Present at the 2017 Global Education Conference
The conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems. Through this event, attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Participants are encouraged to learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context!

The call for proposals for the 2017 conference will open July 1st, 2017. Presenters can submit proposals for general sessions focused on five possible tracks:  Teachers, Students, Curriculum, Leadership, SDGs, Higher Education, and Exchange/Study Abroad Programs.

Proposals should focus on ideas, projects, programs, and initiatives that promote global understanding and collaboration. Keep in mind that this conference is not focused on technology exclusively; proposals must focus on global collaboration and tie to the mission of the conference. Those who enter submissions that do not relate to the mission will be asked to revise. Companies must be sponsors of the conference to participate.

The final deadline for submissions is November 1, 2017, and presenters will be notified of acceptance on a rolling basis starting in August 1, 2017.

Keynote presentations are by invitation only; suggestions can be submitted here.

GLOBAL COLLABORATION DAY

GLOBAL COLLABORATION DAY IS SEPTEMBER 21st

The Global Education Conference Network Launches Its Third Annual Celebration

Students, teachers, and organizations will join together online to celebrate and demonstrate global collaboration on September 21, 2017. On Global Collaboration Day, educators and professionals from around the world will host connective projects and events and invite public participation. This event is brought to you by our friends at Participate.

 

The primary goals of this 24-hour, worldwide event are to:

  • demonstrate the power of global connectivity in classrooms, schools, institutions of informal learning and universities around the world
  • introduce others to the collaborative tools, resources and projects that are available to educators today
  • to focus attention on the need for developing globally competent students and teachers throughout the world

Global Collaboration Day will take place on September 21 in participant time zones. Classrooms, schools, and organizations will design and host engaging online activities for others to join. Events will range from mystery location calls to professional development events to interviews with experts. All events will be collated in an online calendar viewable in participants’ individual time zones. Participants will be connected and share experiences via Twitter via the hashtag #globaled17. Note that due to religious holidays occurring on and around October 21, schools are welcome to host events anytime during the week of Global Collaboration Day.

New this year will be the Global Education Fair, a virtual opportunity for educators to gather information about projects and programs that benefit student learning and global awareness. Exhibitors will include teachers with projects to pitch as well as organizations that offer tools, programs, and services that promote globally connected teaching and learning.

Global Collaboration Day is a project of GlobalEd Events and the Global Education Conference Network, a free online virtual conference that takes place every November during International Education Week. GCD, along with Global Education Day at ISTE and Global Leadership Week, are events designed to connect educators and keep global conversations going year round.
