STRAND 1: Teachers
http://globaleducation.ning.com/page/strands-and-submissions
 
Your Name and Title:
Betsy Corcoran, Editor, EdSurge  
Tony Wan, Associate Editor, EdSurge
 
School or Organization Name:
EdSurge
 
Co-Presenter Name(s):
possibly Mongolian-based edtech entrepreneur*

Area of the World from Which You Will Present:
US (possibly Mongolia)

Language in Which You Will Present:
English  

Target Audience(s):
Educators interested in becoming “teacher-preneurs,” by either using or developing technology tools to connect with classrooms and teachers around the globe

Short Session Description (one line):
How do you take part in the edtech boom--no matter where in the world you start?

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):
Technology for schools is on everyone’s lips: but how do you, as an educator, become not just a user of technology but someone who contributes to building what you believe will serve students best? Gow do you do this anywhere in the world? And what's the technology that will truly make an impact in your environment (not just what Silicon Valley thinks is the next best thing?) EdSurge is a newsletter devoted to technology-education entrepreneurship. This session aims to help educators get ideas for:

1. What's appropriate technology for your environment?

2. How can you get involved in creating or building those technology solutions, again, no matter where in the world you are?

Great ideas never thrive in a vacuum. Collaboration across discipline boundaries and across geographic boundaries is essential. We are inviting an education technology entrepreneur located in Mongolia to join us in this session.
