Today the fifth annual Global Education Conference kicks off. This is our free, five-day, online event that brings together educators and innovators from around the world, with sessions held around the clock to accommodate participant time zones. With over 250 sessions and 30 keynotes, it is an incredible opportunity to connect with and learn from educators, organizations, and students focused on globally-connected learning and supporting cultural awareness and educational access.
The list of today's sessions, in US-Eastern Standard Time, is below.
