iEARN International Conference and Youth Summit 2012 Session Acceptance

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 "iEARN 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://iearn.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 me 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.comto 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 iEARN 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) athttp://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 Conference Planning Committee

Thanks, Diane, your support is so important for me. Hope my session will be interested for ESL teachers. 

Hi Diane,

sorry for my question, but I just need to know it exactly: I've sent two proposals for the Global Education Conference and iEARN Annual Conference, is it the same presentation or I should make two different time for two separate sessions?

thanks

Hi Olga,

Forgive me for taking so long to get back to you. We are trying not to duplicate sessions with the GEC. They will have a list of our presentations and are invited to join. If you have one in the GEC that has been accepted we should delete it. You only need to give one.

Diane

Thanks, Diane, I'll try to delet my GEC session, but in case I can't do it-please delete my session from GEC
