Global Education Conference

I wanted to share an exciting opportunity for all of our BrainPOP Educators to present your brilliant teaching ideas online… to a global audience! Join this conference to share your innovative teaching ideas and also learn from others educators around the world.

The 2010 Global Education Conference is being held online November 15-19. This five-day free conference will have participation from all over the world in multiple languages and in multiple time zones. Do you have 20 minutes to spare? I encourage you to submit a short proposal to speak on your experiences with BrainPOP and other technologies in the classroom.

More detailed information about the conference is available at http://www.GlobalEducationConference.com. There are going to be five conference tracks: Teacher, Student, Curricular, Policy and Leadership, and Global Issues. Included in these will be a series of sessions specifically sponsored by us, and if you choose to submit a presentation, please indicate us as the sponsoring organization. The selection process will finalize in late September, and you’ll hear directly from the conference organizers. The call for presentations is now open at http://www.globaleducationconference.com/call-for-presentations.html.

There is also an international educator advisory board from all over the world to help promote participation and attendance, to train and support presenters in local regions and languages, and to help with program selection and scheduling. If this is something that interests you, you can submit your interest at http://www.globaleducationconference.com/want-to-help.html.

The hashtag for the conference (for those who “tweet” and blog”) is #globaled10. The Twitter account to follow is http://www.twitter.com/globaledcon.
