Sadly, I am unable to embed Storify into my WordPress.com site (it would work if I self-hosted with WordPress.org). Please click the link above to view some of the #iEARN2017 tweets I gathered from iEARN’s 23rd Annual International Conference in Morocco this past week. It was an amazing opportunity to meet educators and youth from over 40 countries and learn about some of the many #GlobalEd projects and opportunities sponsored by iEARN, the International Education and Resource Network. The local MEARN team (iEARN Morocco) was gracious and generous, and it was awesome to return to Morocco as second time for educational and  professional purposes. My first trip was about 12 years ago.

I’m in Marrakech, Morocco to attend (and lead one session at) iEARN’s 23rd International Conference. 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. The program can be found here: http://iearn2017.ma/program

My session’s title and description is pasted below:
