Of the many and varied online spaces and artefacts created by Lucy and Steve and by the numerous participants in live and virtual events over the years, this is one I encourage you to explore:
This was compiled by GEC participants and presented at the 2013 Global Education Conference. The final statement shares:
We declare the critical importance of helping our students, teachers, administrators, parents, and all others to connect globally and to learn from each other; we express appreciation for those who provide opportunities for such global learning activities; and we devote ourselves to furthering the cause of global education.
Just as this blog post becomes public, the 2017 Global Collaboration Day in conjunction with the Global Education Fair is being launched. These events take place on and around September 21. This is another authentic opportunity to connect with global educators and organisations, to share experiences and opportunities and to learn from and with each other. The Fair is designed for you to find the BEST global education resources for your school.
The entire event is virtual, which means you can come and go to suit your own schedule. Make sure you participate in something!
Watch this video and learn more about how to participate! See you there!
