We are pleased to announce the 2012 Global Education Conference, the third yearly worldwide virtual conference: Monday, November 12 through Friday, November 16 (Saturday, November 17th in some time zones). The conference will allow the presentation of ideas, examples, and projects related to connecting educators and classrooms with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems.

To be kept informed of the latest conference news and updates, please join the Global Education Conference website at The call for presentation proposals will be issued the week of May 14th. The conference this year also will incorporate founding partner iEARN's International Conference and Youth Summit.

This letter is a call for the international advisory board, for non-commercial partner organizations, and for sponsors! Links for responding are below.

International Advisory Board:

Anyone can apply to be a member of the international advisory board. Advisory board members are recognized on the website and are asked to:

  • Promote both participation and attendance at the conference
  • Help us find additional partner organizations in their region(s)
  • Help support and potentially train presenters in their geographical region and local languages
  • If possible, help moderate sessions during the actual conference

As a conference that is focused on being "inclusive," our desire is to have international attendees see this as a truly world-wide and not a North-America-centric event, and to see themselves as full participants and presenters, not just the audience.

To sign up for the advisory board, please make sure you have joined the Global Education Conference network, and then join the advisory board group specifically at

Conference Partner Organizations:

Whether you are a small school or a multi-national organization, we want to encourage you to become a conference partner. Your work in this area must be non-commercial and primarily or substantively focused on globally connecting students or teachers, or other global competency and awareness education initiatives. Once approved, your organization will be listed with a link, logo, and a short description; and you will be provided with a "spotlight" speaker session in the conference.

Our goal for the conference is to have it continue to be a milestone event, bringing together organizations and individuals from all over the world. We recognize that much (if not most!) of the outreach for this conference will come from libraries, schools, or organizations who advertise the conference to their memberships, and we want to recognize and "reward" those who do this!

There are no financial obligations for being a partner organization--all we ask is that you actively promote the conference to your membership and network, and encourage participation as well as presentations and submissions. To apply to be a conference partner organization, please make sure you have joined the Global Education Conference online network, and then join the partner group specifically at

Conference Sponsors:

There are opportunities for commercial sponsorship of the Global Education Conference, and both recognition and authentic appreciation for financial support will be given to those who choose to sponsor. Sponsorship levels and benefits can be discussed with Steve Hargadon directly at or 916-283-7901.

More Information:

A call for presentations will be issued mid-May, and we will also be looking for conference volunteers closer to the conference dates.

The Global Education Conference founding sponsor is iEARN (International Education and Resource Network). iEARN is a non-profit organization made up of over 30,000 schools and youth organizations in more than 130 countries. iEARN empowers teachers and young people to work together online using the Internet and other new communications technologies. Over 2,000,000 students each day are engaged in collaborative project work worldwide. The 2012 Global Education Conference will include, as a special parallel event, the iEARN International Conference and Youth Summit.

We are looking forward to the third year of this this terrific event, and to your participation!

Thank you,

Steve Hargadon
Founder and Co-Chair
