I just wanted to update you on ONE (of many) ISTE Global Collaboration PLN initiatives for Global Collaboration Day....
Educators at all levels and from all parts of the world are invited to be part of... 
The World's Largest Global Education Collaboration and Challenge  
during ‘Global Collaboration Day, September 17, 2015.

We are looking for as many educators as possible at all levels to participate, contribute and collaborate around the theme of ‘online global collaboration’ over the 24+ hours of the collaboration (see time conversion chart).
The Challenge: “What do school/university communities and systems need to know about the benefits and processes of global collaborations for teaching and learning?  What’s the evidence and how do you do it?”
To participate in The World's Largest Global Education Collaboration Start HERE:

Contributors are invited to fill in an online form, after which they will be directed to another Google doc where they can contribute in a number of ways within these parameters:
Part 1: Telling the story of online global collaboration in educationVia Google doc or Voicethread (full instructions given for using this tool)

We are excited to include K-12 and post-secondary levels of education and welcome contributions from across the world - and we really do hope this will be the World's LARGEST Global Education Collaboration!!
