I can't quite believe that I'm coming to ISTE from Perth, Western Australia this year, but I'm delighted to be able to meet many #globalclassroom  and #globaledcon  members f2f for the first time. 

If you're free, and able to come along to our global education and global blogging poster sessions, please come along and say hi!

Can storytelling be slowed to a walking pace in an age of nano-headlines? How do you share a journey that spans not seven days — but seven years? This was the question — and challenge — that Paul Salopek’s Out of Eden Walk posed. St. Martin’s-in-the-Field Episcopal School, a preschool-through-8th-grade school in Severna Park, MD, set about finding a local response. We decided we’d have a Global Bazaar — a...

Do you want to support people in India learning-by-doing and building cool things?
My friend Abhijit Sinha runs a makerspace in a village outside Bangalore. They help students from elementary school upward to learn science and technology by building projects. They've been invited to come to MIT to a conference to showcase their projects, teach workshops on community welfare and art as well as on disaster mitigation, and connect with other makers from around the world. They're super-exited but have one problem: They need money to get here. Can you help?

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.

I'm working with a school that's hosting a Google Hangout on Air featuring children's author Grace Lin. Hope you can join us on Tuesday! 
Lucy Gray originally shared:
 
During the 2014-2015 school year, Falconer School fifth graders have read two books by noted children's author Grace Lin, Where the Mountain Meets the Moon and Starry River of the Sky. See Grace's website for more information about her work: http://www.gracelin.com/.

 On Tuesday, June 9th, 2015, students will have the opportunity to learn more about Grace's work through a Google Hangout on Air video call. Grace will talk about her work and life, and Falconer students will have the opportunity to ask her questions. We have been practicing asking good questions using a method developed by the Right Question Institute.

Friends of Falconer students and other classrooms are welcome to watch this conversation on our event page or in YouTube. 

Many thanks to Qualcomm and Kajeet for Education for making this wonderful opportunity possible. For the past three years, Falconer has been involved in a 1:1 tablet pilot supported by Kajeet and Qualcomm. For more information about this project, please visit: http://goo.gl/iy3Ce3.
