Global Education Conference #globaled14
I always learn so much at this conference. Please check it out
We Know You Want to Take All of Next Week Off…!. But you don’t have to, since the Global Education Conferenceis a virtual conference, so you can check out the full schedule in your own time zone, pick the sessions you want to attend, and come and join us as much as you can. Just imagine, from the comfort of your chair (and even in your pajamas!) you can actually attend the 30+ keynote sessions and many of the over 250 total sessions at our 5-day, around-the-clock, Global Education party, starting this coming Monday. This is our FIFTH anniversary year for the conference, and Lucy Gray, my co-chair, has done a PHENOMENAL job lining up great speakers (see below)–HUGE kudos to Lucy, to our devoted volunteer crew, and to all of the presenters from around the world contributing this year! We really do hope you’ll join in the fun.
