By connecting the learning globally through Languages, Mathematics lessons using GeoGebra and History lessons explaining heritage, art and culture of their own country, students are empowered to become Ambassadors of their own country.

Participants will learn how parents monitor internet use by their children. This safeguards students as they search, research and learn online. Parents take an active interest in linking their children at both ends of the collaboration. Social Networking Homes  will be discussed, leading to better understanding of different cultures.

Mother to mother teaching each other online - how to make garden pots using recycled paper, how to help sons set up a garden in school campus.

You may set up a Global Teacher Garden. We shall collaborate with you and plant a tree honoring you and your team.  #TeachersMatter #MothersMatter

Hi Sebastian,

This is a good proposal and we're looking forward to hearing from you and your students. Before I can accept this, can you please edit your proposal (use the OPTIONS button) and add the required conference tags as indicated in the call for proposals. Also, please add clarifying language as to what you will do in this presentation. This is currently a description of a project. Consider the following: What are you planning to cover? What might participants learn from your story? What resources will be presented? Are you inviting others to participate? 

Make some edits, and let me know when you're finished. I'll be happy to approve this session then.


Lucy Gray

Hi again Sebastian,

Thanks for making edits. You do not need to include the questions I posed; they are simply guides for you so that you can create a proposal that clearly outlines what you will present. We are not necessarily looking for a highly detailed description of your project; we are looking for a description of your session as it would appear in a conference program. Would you make one more attempt to edit this proposal and your second one and then I'll approve them?

Here are some examples of accepted proposals that may help you get a feel for typical conference proposals:



Dear Lucy,

Thank you. Please do instruct me to edit, if it needs any more improvements to pass GEC criteria.
