Last year, Google quietly decided to kill support for a key function in Android for the majority of its users. Researchers are now calling on Google to reverse its policy decision so the 939 million affected are protected.

Collaboration  - 
 
The 10th yr anniversary for Katrina is in August. I am thinking of using this as a focus of some instruction. I would love to connect with classrooms/teachers who would be able to give a first hand account to my 2nd graders.

A limited discussion for sure. I want them to see how studying historical events can help improve things. I also want them to know the importance of being prepared, since we are in Florida.

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.

Speak up about one of the toughest debates facing educators today!
 
Should Math be Taught in Schools?

Apply a bit of logical critical thinking (oooooh, math!) plus basic observation to quickly see these are not real Miss USA contestants. As Snopes.com explains, "It's a spoof created by MacKenzie Fegan parodying an actual question posed to genuine Miss USA 2011 contestants: "Should evolution be taught in schools?" So, the joke really is on the Creationists, I guess.
