Steve and I also had the opportunities to several conferences in June and July tospread the word about
 
work in this community. At the Asia Society's
 
Partnership forGlobal Learning Conference, GEC members Julie Lindsey, Anne Mirtschin, and SilviaTolisano participated in a great panel with us. Hopefully, video of this event will beposted at some point. Make sure to take note of this conference as it's a great face-to-face opportunity to gather with other globally minded educators!Finally, it’s not too late to joinour international advisory board. We will be holding ournext set of advisory board meetings in August, so consider participating. We are alsolooking topartner with non-profits (including schools)to help us get the word out about theconference.Our best to you,Lucy Gray & Steve Hargadon, GEC Co-Chairs
