Two Great Global Education Webinars Tonight Live in Elluminate

Tonight we've got two great live and interactive events later today as part of an ongoing focus on Global Education.  All of our events are, of course, free and you're welcome to publicize them to any individuals or groups you think might find them of interest.

First, at 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern (1am next day GMT / international times) I'll be talking with Sharon Peters and Noble Kelly on "Education Without Borders." Education Beyond Borders is a non-profit NGO devoted to closing the education divide through teacher professional development and community education, especially in disadvantaged regions at home and around the world. Their organization focuses on the building of teacher leaders primarily, but not exclusively, in developing countries in order to build self-reliance, health, and capacity.
