Our Mission
The mission of this conference is exclusively focused on global collaboration. The Global Education Conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and collaborative projects related to connecting educators, classrooms and organizations with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems, particularly around education for all. Through this event, 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! IMPORTANT: Please note that this is not a general education conference, nor an event exclusively focused on educational technology.

The final deadline for submissions is November 15, 2013, and presenters will be notified of acceptance on a rolling basis.
