Global Collaboration Day Has Arrived (It's Thursday in New Zealand!)


It’s now Thursday in the South Pacific--and that means Global Collaboration Day has arrived! One day, September 15th, all around the world = 48 actual hours to share.

Over the next two of days, students, classrooms, teachers, administrators, parents and organizations will be either attending and/or hosting events online that are designed to showcase and promote global collaboration. We (Lucy Gray + Steve Hargadon, co-chairs of the Global Education Conference) are the calendar coordinators but not the direct conveners: that is, over 135 groups from 25 countries have designed and planned their own events which we have then organized into a directory and in special calendars to allow these events to be seen in any time zone in the world.

The second-annual Global Collaboration Day is a huge worldwide demonstration of the power of globally-connected learning.

We encourage you to browse the event directory or the calendar and choose a compelling event to attend! Read directions and our website carefully to prepare. While events can still be added until tonight at 9 PM GMT-6 (instructions here), a current list of the events is at the bottom of this post.
Here are some important links for you to keep handy:
AND, please take a moment to learn about the new GREAT GLOBAL ​PROJECT CHALLENGE: Between now and October 1, 2016,  global educators will design collaborative projects in which other students and teachers may participate during the course of the 2016-2017 school year.

Special thanks to our partners and sponsors, shown beneath the events. Kudos to them!

See you online,

Lucy and Steve
