Bienvenue! Welcome! 歡迎! Willkommen! Benvenuto! 반갑습니다! Seja bem-vindo(a)! Bienvenido!
The 2010 Global Education Conference is being held November 15 - 19, 2010, online and free. Sessions will take place in multiple time zones and multiple languages over the five days. The conference is a collaborative and world-wide community effort to significantly increase opportunities for globally-connecting education activities and initiatives.
There is no formal registration required for the conference, as all the sessions will be open and public, broadcast live using the Elluminate platform, and available in recorded formats afterwards. Links to watch the sessions will be posted a few days before the conference begins, in the "Sessions" and "Schedule" pages, and recording links will be listed soon thereafter. To verify that your computer system is configured correctly to access Elluminate, please run the self-test here.
All presenters, moderators, and attendees should read the most current conference news and information on the Status page.
Thank you for your interest,
A Spanish/Espanol version of the site is here.
The schedules are cleverly done using Google Scheduling coupled with a timezone conversion.
Here is what to do:
a) Go to this site
b) Click on your time zone and voila, there is your schedule of the complete conference in your timezone.
For example, since I am in the GMT +1 timezone, I click on the GMT +1 and then it leads me to this site
which holds the time of the conference. Very smart.
Please keep in mind that this is not a language related conference (this is why we are not presenting) but Steve Hargadon is the absolute pioneer in the field of online events and conferences and every session is worth attending if you have time.
