Join Us for Global Education Day at ISTE in Philadelphia - Sunday, June 23rd

Global Education Day, our annual meet-up for global educators, takes place at the International Society for Technology in Education Conference (ISTE) on Sunday, June 23rd, from 2:30 - 5:15 pm at the Pennsylvania Convention Center.

Join Lucy Gray, Steve Hargadon, and many members of the Global Education Conference community for a special face-to-face meeting in which you can connect and collaborate with other globally-minded educators. This is a great way to meet others before the official start of the ISTE conference!

This participatory event will feature:
  • A special guest appearance by design thinker and educator Don Buckley
  • Inspirational ignite talks by noted educators and organizations working to connect classrooms
  • Design activities related to bringing the UN's Sustainable Development Goals into schools
  • A global resource cool tools smackdown in which attendees will share the best resources and tools for creating global experiences for students
  • Resources from participating global education non-profit organizations

This year, noted educator and design-thinking guru Don Buckley will be facilitating modified design thinking activities to help educators contemplate incorporating the UN's Sustainable Development Goals into schools. Don will give a short keynote, lead us through ideation and affinity mapping activities, and then our assembled group will vote on the best ideas. Interspersed throughout this workshop will be ignite talks and global resource sharing.

PLEASE NOTE: you must be registered to attend the ISTE conference in order to attend the Global Education Day. While ISTE requires a registration fee, Global Education Day does not require an additional fee. Our event will have limited seating and there is no pre-registration for the event itself--attendees will be admitted on a first come, first served basis starting at 2 pm that day.
