Thank you so much for your session proposal for the 2012 iEARN International Conference and Youth Summit! We're please to let you know that your submission has been accepted! Your proposal is now in the "Youth Summit accepted proposals" list on the website. Here are some important tasks for you.

1. Because we have sessions being presented from all different time zones, as a speaker you actually schedule your own session time at http://iearnyouth.youcanbook.me. This allows you to see the available slots and to pick something that works within your time zone, work schedule, or other constraints. We're quite proud of how this works, as it is one of the benefits of a virtual conference, but if you should fun into any difficulties finding a time that works for you, email a conference coordinator directly (dmidness@us.iearn.org).

We encourage you to do this quickly, as proposals are being reviewed in the order in which they were submitted, so your priority for selecting a session time depends on you scheduling right away. When you do select you time, be sure that the scheduling system has the correct time zone for you!
To schedule your session, you should open http://www.globaleducationconference.com to your presentation proposal (you can do a search on your name to find it, or click on "My Page" in the top menu and then click on the "discussion" link on the left side to find it). Open the session booking link from above in another tab. You will find it easiest to copy the information from one to the other rather than re-type it. Once completed, you will receive an email confirmation of your booking.

2. As a presenter, you need to make sure you are a member of the conference "presenters group" on the network website. Most of our announcements to speakers will be sent to the members of this group, so as not to email all site members. Join the group (or check to make sure you're already a member) at http://www.globaleducationconference.com/group/iearn-2012-conferenc....

3. Presenters are responsible for knowing how to use Blackboard Collaborate (formerly Elluminate). We will have a cadre of volunteers on hand during the conference to help with any issues, but you need to go through the moderator training for Collaborate if you are not a seasoned user. There will be a variety of training resources at the GEC Collaborate website, and we email the speakers group in some weeks alerting you to actual live training sessions.

Again, we are so delighted to have you participating in the 2012 iEARN International Conference and Youth Summit. Thank you!

Best,

iEARN Youth Summit Planning Committee
2012iearnyouthsummit@gmail.com

This talk will take place at 3 pm EST on Wednesday, Nov. 14, on the virtual GlobalEdCon.  Any questions, please write to fsiracusa@countrydaylargo.com.

Thank you for your presentation in the 2012 iEARN Virtual Conference and Youth Summit.  Attached is a certificate of appreciation.
