Thanks for your submission to present at the 2011 Global Education Conference. Your proposal looks promising, but could benefit from some additional language that ties your work to the conference theme of global collaboration. Your proposed session may imply global collaborations and connections, but we need to see more explanation of how your work ties into our mission. The conference seeks to present ideas, examples and initiatives related to connecting educators and classrooms around the world with an emphasis on promoting global awareness and instilling global competency in students. This is not a general education conference nor a technology conference. Please review your submission and adjust accordingly, so that participants clearly understand how your work fits into the mission of the conference.

The deadline for submitting your revisions to this proposal is November 7, 2011 at 5 PM CST or 23:00 UTC.  Email Lucy Gray at elemenous@gmail.com if you make changes and need your proposal reviewed again.


We will not accept revisions after this time. If you choose not to revise, we appreciate your ideas and we hope you'll consider applying next year.
