GLOBAL COLLABORATION DAY IS SEPTEMBER 15TH
The Global Education Conference Network Launches Its Second Annual Celebration
Students, teachers, and organizations will join together online to celebrate and demonstrate global collaboration on September 15, 2016. 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 VIF International Education, Google for Education, iEARN-USA and Edmodo.
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
An optional new activity this year will be the Great Global Project Challenge. Between now and October 1, 2016, global educators will design collaborative projects using a variety of platforms in which other students and teachers may participate during the course of the 2016-2017 school year. The objective is to create and present as many globally connective projects for students and educators as possible. The final deadline for submissions into our project directory is October 1, but participants are also encouraged to do an introductory activity for their project on Global Collaboration Day as well.
Global Collaboration Day is a project of 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.
