Dear GEC Members -
Our community has 2 major events taking place this fall and we invite you to participate in both! Global Collaboration Day will take place on September 17th; check out this recent article from eSchool News about this exciting event which also appeared in Smartbrief. Additionally, our annual online conference will take place in mid-November.
For Global Collaboration Day, we are seeking schools, after-school programs, libraries, universities, museums, and companies to host online activities on September 17th with the primary goal of demonstrating the power of global collaboration in the learning process. These events are designed by hosts and could be as simple as a Twitter chat , an online book discussion, or a virtual screening of a film. The idea is that we collectively present a myriad of globally connective activities that may encourage others to try using technology to collaborate online. See examples of projects that have been submitted thus far by clicking here.
Here are some links to help you get started.
We will be holding drop-in informational sessions on in our Blackboard Collaborate virtual room on Tuesday, September 8th at 7 AM, 2 PM, and 7 PM Central (UTC-5). Visit timeanddate.com to convert times into your time zone. To attend these sessions, go to our virtual room on the aforementioned dates or times. Please attend if you have an idea and want feedback, to pitch your event to others, or to ask any questions. These events will be recorded if you cannot make it!
If you can help us with translating information into other languages, please let Lucy know by sending an email to firstname.lastname@example.org. If your organization or company is interested in serving as a media outreach partner or sponsor of the event, please contact Steve email@example.com
Thanks for your time and interest. We look forward to your demonstration of global connectedness on Global Collaboration Day!
Lucy Gray & Steve Hargadon
