Global Collaboration Day Update!

This is just a quick reminder with important information about our upcoming Global Collaboration Day! The objective of our next event is to help more educators become connected to global education organizations and to other professionals who are experienced with globally connected teaching and learning. Educators and organizations will be hosting simple online events on September 15th in order to demonstrate what global collaboration looks like. Events are designed for a variety of audiences including teachers, students, parents, and organizational leaders.
