Global Education Day at TCEA in Austin

We’re thrilled to announce that we will be at the TCEA Convention and Exposition on February 5, 2018! We hold an annual Global Education Day at the ISTE conference and are now expanding to bring this face-to-face global event to other conferences.

Join Lucy Gray, Steve Hargadon, Edmodo, and many members of the Global Education Conference community on Monday, February 5th PM at the Austin Convention Center for one or both of two special half-day face-to-face meetings in which you can connect and collaborate with other globally-minded educators.
  • Inspirational ignite talks by noted educators and organizations working to connect classrooms;
  • Round-table discussions in which educators will showcase specific examples of global projects;
  • A global resource cool tools smackdown in which attendees will share the best resources and tools for creating global experiences for students.
This meetup will take place at the TCEA Convention and Exposition as part of TCEA’s premium registration hands-on workshops. Registration is required, and premium registrations do sell out each year, so don't delay! Also: workshops and events on this premium day are filled on a first-come, first-served basis to registrants. We cannot guarantee that there will be space in our events so we recommend that you plan ahead and get there early. If our sessions are filled, there will be other workshops you can attend.

Note: this is a physical, face-to-face event, not a virtual or online event. Please register ONLY if you can be in Austin, Texas on February 5, 2018.

Contact Lucy Gray directly at if you are interested in serving as a roundtable discussion facilitator and/or an ignite speaker. Spaces are limited. Roundtable facilitators will lead networking discussions on a topic of their choice related to global education. Ignite speakers will deliver short presentations (20 slides at 15 seconds each) on a topic related to globally connected teaching and learning.
