Hi, Elizabeth. This session doesn't make any direct ties to globally connecting students and/or teachers. Do you want to update the description to make that clearer, or is the session not really geared to that? Thanks!
Thanks you for this feedback. I would like to withdraw the proposal at this time.
I'm worried we scared you off... :) I wonder if this might be appropriate for the Learning 2.0 conference? http://www.learning20.com.
