País desde el que presentará: Argentina

Idioma en el que presentará: Español

Público objetivo (por ejemplo, maestros de escuela primaria, los administradores de la escuela secundaria, estudiantes, etc): Educadores en general

Descripción de la sesión corta (una línea): Este proyecto busca revalorizar las celebraciones, descubrir sus raíces y relevancias culturales, para luego poder compartirlas con otras instituciones educativas, otras regiones geográficas.

Descripción de la sesión completa (mínimo un párrafo): Celebraciones es un proyecto telecolaborativo que busca revalorar las celebraciones, descubrir sus raíces y relevancias culturales, organizarlas especialmente y vivirlas con mayor intensidad y compromiso, para luego poder compartirlas con otras escuelas y con otras culturas. Una propuesta que nos permite aprender acerca de las celebraciones en el mundo y descubrir cómo los pueblos celebran un mismo acontecimiento de diferentes maneras.

Entre sus objetivos se destacan:

• Promover la interculturalidad a través de la comunicación y el intercambio de información, basados en la apertura a la diversidad cultural y el aprecio al conocimiento entre los pueblos.
• Comprender la utilidad de herramientas informáticas y los recursos de la web 2.0 para socializar y construir conocimiento en forma colectiva.
• Experimentar una forma de trabajo colaborativo con alumnos de otras escuelas, valorando sus aportes y respetando las opiniones ajenas.
• Desarrollar la creatividad.
• Aprender a comunicar conocimientos y adecuar las explicaciones a los destinatarios.
• Producir material digitalizado (videos, documentos, folletos informativos, presentaciones multimedia, sitios Web, producciones realizadas con diferentes recursos de la Web 2.0.) para brindar información sobre las diferentes celebraciones en el Mundo.
• Utilizar la georreferenciación global como una herramienta de construcción colaborativa.

Este es uno de los proyectos telecolaborativos de la Red TELAR (Todos En LA Red) que auspicia la Fundación Evolución y se encuentran participando en este momento 34 escuelas de diferentes regiones geográficas.

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:// 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 (

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) at

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!

iEARN Conference Planning Committee

I sent a private message to you.

Hola Cristina,
¿Recibió una respuesta de GEC? ¿Se tiene la intención de la propuesta Recorriendo El Mundo colaborativamente "ser para la Conferencia GEC o iEARN?
Perdona esta traducción de Google.

Cristina -

I saw your message in the chat. If you need to contact me, the best way is to send me a message through this community or an email at I am not always at my computer to see chat messages.

I see that you have submitted an iEARN proposal and it was accepted. Diane gave you instructions on how to book your presentation below. I believe you are sent an email to confirm when you do this. We do not book your sessions for you.

If you are having scheduling issues with this session, please contact Diane or Steve Hargadon (



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


Thank You, Diane.
