While my two colleagues are planning to leave me behind to hold down the fort at the end of next week when they traipse on out to Arizona for the iNACOL 2010 Virtual School Symposium, I'm planning to, well, hold down the fort at MNPS Virtual Learning, but I'm also planning to attend another conference, all from the comfort of my own little (admittedly techtripped-out) cubicle. Thanks to Steve and Luuuuuuuuuuucy (I have to say it that way every time I see her, for some inexplicable and likely juvenile reason) for making this happen. I repost content from the Global Education Conference website here in the sincere hope that I'll see some of you there (virtually, of course!). Here 'tis:
Bienvenue! Welcome! 歡迎! Willkommen! Benvenuto!
Seja bem-vindo(a)! Bienvenido!
The 2010 Global Education Conference will be held November 15 - 19, 2010, online and free. Sessions (do check this list out! You'll be AMAZED) will be held in multiple time zones and multiple languages over the five days.
The conference is a collaborative and world-wide community effort to significantly increase opportunities for globally-connecting education activities and initiatives.
There is no formal registration required for the conference, as all the sessions will be open and public, broadcast live using the Elluminate platform, and available in recorded formats afterwards. Links to watch the sessions will be posted a few days before the conference begins, in the "Sessions" and "Schedule" pages, and recording links will be listed soon thereafter. To verify that your computer system is configured correctly to access Elluminate, please run the self-test here.
We are currently looking for volunteers to help moderate session--please check here if you can help (and thanks!).
Thank you for your interest,
A Spanish/Espanol version of the site is here.
