“The Global Education Conference is a collaborative, inclusive, world-wide community initiative involving students, educators, and organizations at all levels. Their activities are designed to significantly increase opportunities for connecting classrooms while supporting cultural awareness and recognition of diversity and educational access for all.”
This year GEC is sponsoring the Global Collaboration Day, September 15, 2016.
Students, teachers, and organizations will celebrate global collaboration on September 15, 2016! On this day (and beyond), experienced global educators and professionals will host connective projects and events and invite public participation. The primary goals of this whole day event are to demonstrate the power of global connectivity in classrooms, schools, institutions of informal learning and universities around the world, and to introduce others to the tools, resources and projects that are available to educators today.
In conjunction with Global Collaboration Day is the Great Global Project Challenge.
It is sponsored by VIF International Education, Google for Education, and iEARN-USA as part of Global Collaboration Day efforts
This fall, global educators will design collaborative projects in which other students and teachers may participate during the course of the 2016-2017 school year. The objective is to create and present as many globally connective projects for students and educators as possible.
TLJ Consulting has accepted the challenge!
Join me as I take 8 Excursions in Mathematics beginning in October and continuing through May, 2017. Travel with me each month as we visit a different part of the world to experience their rich mathematical history as we experience some of the historical mathematics the region has to offer as well as its connections to other disciplines. A variety of activities will be shared accessible for students at all levels. We will investigate an assortment of topics as we study the regional stops for each monthly Excursion.
Register here for the recording of the overview webinar:
Sign up your class to join this global initiative while experiencing relevant and historical mathematics along the way. Experience a collaborative platform that will serve as a “playground with high walls” in which students can investigate, discover, learn, create, and share their Excursions in Mathematics experiences. Every month teachers will have the opportunity to take part in a live on-line event offering support and live Q & A for the months’ excursions. Each student will have their own passport for the excursions with a page for each. To learn more, be sure to register for the overview …
