Kristina -

Please edit your proposal and make it more clear how your work relates to our mission and strands:

http://www.globaleducationconference.com/page/2013-conference-strands

Thanks,

Lucy Gray

Conference Co-Chair

Thanks Lucy for checking in! 

This short presentation will likely cover a number of the recommended items from the teachers and student strands, including: 

  • how to get started with global projects
  • how to internationalize your curriculum
  • how to find project partners and build relationships that will ensure project success through the development of personal learning networks
  • ideas for involving parents and school communities in global projects
  • supporting and empowering youth involvement through various programs and activities
  • giving overviews of programs or organisations that support global work in classrooms
  • highlighting model projects, programs, and organizations that directly involve students
  • identifying tips, tools, and resources aimed at student involvement in global opportunities

As to the mission -- yes, all three of us are aligned with programs that are global and solve real world problems. These are the programs we are talking about. Ride To Learn, as we spoke about last year which Alam has worked to establish in rural Pakistan and Ian's working on some new student-led programs. I've added the Solution Focused (Humane) aspect, because I think it is important to empower action through this approach and many educators have found this helpful when I share some of the tools and perspective. 

Let me know if that clears things up and if you have any other questions. 

Cheers, Kristina 



For additional details about my proposed segment:

What are some of the risks and responsibilities involved with global digital education that don't happen in face-to-face educational experiences?
What are foreseeable challenges for educational social enterprises to ensure quality educational content remains accessible, engaging, and balanced?
How do engaging experiences like the arts and adventure create deeper educational opportunities?
Learn more about developing curriculum focused on fostering meaningful learning opportunities that encourage real world engagement and implementable solutions for students globally.
Using principles of sustainability through place-based, challenge-based, and inquiry-based learning allow us to employ interdisciplinary, transdisciplinary, and non-disciplinary techniques which can be adapted by K-12/Primary school to institutes of higher education and informal educators alike.
These methods address a crucial step in developing local and global awareness, and when utilized in appropriate context, aid learners to navigate and resolving complex interconnecting challenges of social, economic, and environmental sustainability.
