Don't forget

The 2010 Global Education Conference is being held November 15 - 19, 2010, online and free.  Sessions will take place in multiple time zones and multiple languages over the five days.   For those "tweeting," the hashtag is #globaled10.

The conference is a collaborative and world-wide community effort to significantly increase opportunities for globally-connecting education activities.   Our goal is to help you make connections with other educators and students, and for this reason the conference is very inclusive and also is provides broad opportunities for participating and presenting.
