THE POWER OF KNOWLEDGE
 
< < THIЅ ШΣΣK I∏ ЅCIΣ∏CΣ ! > >

New Horizons, now only one week away from Pluto, has detected primordial methane from the birth of our solar system, the Argus II Bionic Eye allows the blind to see and apparently ski, and quantum entanglement gets another boost thanks to hyperentanglement. And as always there’s a whole lot more, all in the links below! Hope you like the new picture format.

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.

Hello Education Supporters! Remember as employees you have to advocate for yourself when you are making an impact! So I shared my winning strategies to my local board and promoted my start-up business!! My goal is to receive an awesome contract with a school system!!! However, if you know of a middle or high school that needs a Technology Integration Coach for students or teachers, I have seven years of experience managing a digital classroom!! Please email me at competewithpurpose@gmail.com, if you are interested or know someone who may be interested! My online portfolio website is mariancompetes.pbworks.com. I am willing to travel outside of Maryland! Please spread the word! Thank you in advance for your support. My speech begins around 18:30.

 At Poe Elementary School, we love the way Out of Eden  (http://learn.outofedenwalk.com/ ) helps students develop global awareness.  To further enhance our students' learning, Poe's Instructional Technology Teacher Jill and I created a Global Awareness Club.  We placed information about the club in a presentation that we shared at this year's State Conference for Teachers Serving Linguistically & Culturally Diverse Students.  Here is the link
