With Dave Eggers book, The Circle, on my nightstand, I'm still on the search for professional development and student learning opportunities that focus on global learning. (The Circle doesn't approach George Orwell's 1984, but it's a good read.)
Here's a find. Interested in conversations surrounding global education? Join the 2013 Global Education Conference this year from November 18th-22nd. Access keynote speakers and sessions for free from your home computer or office. Check out the sessions in this brochure.
It's interesting how many social media tools are in use in this year's conference. You can follow the hashtag on Twitter #globaled13. I was drawn to the Google + Community to continue exploration of the growing opportunities for global classroom collaborations. The number of ways and opportunities are growing. I'll be keeping my eye on quality and authentic learning opportunities.
