Your Name and Title:  Mr Michael Graffin (@mgraffin)

Organization Name:  The Global Classroom Project

Co-Presenter Name(s): Various members of the #globalclassroom community

Area of the World from Which You Will Present: Perth, Western Australia (GMT+8) , with teacher members from Greece, Nepal, South Africa, Taiwan and India. We also hope to include students from a South African member school.

Language in Which You Will Present: English

Target Audience(s): K-12 Teachers, ICT Integrators, School Librarians

Short Session Description (one line): Join us as we explore the origins, history, projects, and learning experiences which define The Global Classroom Project; a grassroots global education community connecting and empowering teachers and students worldwide.

Full Session Description (as long as you would like):

The Global Classroom Project was envisaged as an online community where teachers and students could connect, share, learn and collaborate on a global stage. Over the course of the past two years, this vision has been brought to life by a team of dedicated educators around the world.

In the course of 2011-12, we hosted over 15 major global projects, and saw our education network grow to include over 300 teachers, and several thousand students. Our project blog and wiki have become vibrant spaces for sharing teachers’ global projects, and our Facebook and Skype groups have proved to be extremely valuable spaces for teachers to connect, and build global friendships.

This presentation will host several major project announcements, including the official launch of Global Classroom 2012-13

We hope you will join us as we explore the stories, projects, and learning opportunities which have made this project a transforming influence in the lives of hundreds of teachers, and thousands of students around the world.
