About this community

Please post only content that is related to the mission of our conference. This is a moderated community. The Global Education Conference is a collaborative, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organizations at all levels. It is designed to significantly increase opportunities for building education-related connections around the globe while supporting cultural awareness, recognition of diversity, and educational access for all. The conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems. Through this event, it is our hope that attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Let us learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context! If you are an educator and looking to engage with another classroom, here are a few tips: 1) Create a post here and/or in our main online community (http://globaleducationconference.com) containing specific details of what you'd like to accomplish. 2) Include a project web site, length of the project, learning objectives, grade levels sought and expectations for participation. 3) The more structured and specific you are in your requests, the more likely you'll find project partners. 4) Once you've described your project, the admin of this group will also post your opportunity to GlobalEdCon's various social media channels.

Are you familiar with Harvard's +Out of Eden Learn Project Zero ? Interact with National Geographic explorer Paul Salopek next week... 
 
You and your class are invited to a live video chat with National Geographic Explorer Paul Salopek! Visit this page on Tuesday to watch the live stream, and post any questions for Paul here.

Paul Salopek has been en route since January of 2013. He’s walking across three continents to follow the path of our first human ancestors. He started in Ethiopia, the birthplace of humankind, and will end at the southern tip of South America—seven years later—in 2020.

Along the way, Paul is wearing his journalist hat. He’s writing stories about the major issues of our time—climate change, technological innovation, cultural survival, and many others. At the same time, he’s seeking out personal, lesser-known stories from the unique individuals he meets.

Before beginning the Out of Eden Walk, Paul worked as a foreign correspondent in Africa, the Balkans, the Middle East, Central Asia, and Latin America. He’s known for going big when researching a story. He’s canoed down a Congo River, ridden mules in Mexico, and worked at a gas station in Chicago—all for the sake of the story.

View our teacher guide for resources and discussion ideas: https://goo.gl/ZytQeM.

You can also register your class for a 12-week journey with Out of Eden Learn: learn.outofedenwalk.com. 
This Hangout On Air is hosted by National Geographic Education. The live video broadcast will begin soon.

A hot topic today in Silicon Valley, educational technology can improve student learning and close the achievement gap. Guests in this distinguished panel will discuss how technology is powering global connections and playing an important role in the development of global competency in students and teachers.
