This is my first iEARN conference, and it’s a thrill to be among 300+ participants from 40+ countries. This is true global education! Follow #iEARN2017 for the tweets.

Sharing about @EdTechSummitsA with @k2pglobal & @kevin_baloyi for @GlobaEdCon! #GlobalEd16 #GlobalEd #ETSA16 #AfricaEd

I’m super honored to be delivering a keynote with Karen Kirsch Page (@k2pglobal) and Kevin Baloyi (@Kevin_Baloyi) about our experience being part of the EdTech Summit Africa 2016 team. This was the fourth annual EdTech Summit Africa adventure organized by Karen Kirsch Page (who goes by K2) and her co-producer Mona Ewees (@EweesMona). It was a life-changing and amazing experience to travel around South Africa, Swaziland, and Ghana for 30 days with a group of volunteer teachers. In between days on the road or sightseeing, we led ten summits for educators where we offered participants a choice of workshops about integrating and learning with technology for themselves and their students. My particular workshop was about using GoogleSites to create an online teaching portfolio or class website.

Here is the link to listen to our recorded session about EdTech Summit Africa:

Here’s more info from the Global Ed Conference 2016 site:

The Global Education Conference (GEC) is a collaborative and world-wide community convening designed to significantly increase opportunities for globally-connecting educators and programs. Our primary event seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real-world problems. Through this conference and associated events, attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Participants are encouraged to learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context!

The Global Education Conference welcomes participants from all over the world and encourages presentations in any language. Training is provided in the conference platform, Blackboard Collaborate, and presenters are encouraged to take ownership of the presentation process when scheduling and promoting their sessions. The purpose of this event is to elevate and empower presenters to share their knowledge with a global audience.

We have partnered this year with iEARN to host their annual conference and youth summit in tandem with the Global Education Conference. iEARN typically hosts their conference in various conferences, but for logistical reasons, they’ve held it online twice with the GEC.

Additionally, the Global Education Conference Network organizes three other events. See http://globaledevents.com for more details.

Here are the slides we’ll be using during our keynote presentation:
