On Nov.21, 2013 I managed to see one more presentation by Rimma Zhukova "IEARN Local History project as a tool to develop the 21st century skills and enhance cross cultural dialogue"
I admired this presentation most of all. The presenters shared their experience about the project about Local history. It's a good idea as nowadays so many people are so much involved in the process of globalization that they completely forget about their roots.
I learnt about a very useful…Continue

On Nov. 19, 2013 my second visit to the Conference was the presentation of Betty Hurley-Dasgupta "ePortfolios as Environments for Global Engagement, Deep Learning and Authentic"
Before this presentation I hadn't known much about ePortfolios. I agree with the presenter thatePortfolios can be applied in learning and develop critical thinking.
I guess ePortfolios are better than simple blogs as they give more opportunities.
Thanks the presenter for a useful resource -…Continue

Though attending conference happened accidentally I learned a lot how teaching and learning happening around the world in different…Continue

Session Title: Prepare Practice Produce Present / By: Paulino Brener

, I would like to say that students wouldn’t be able to develop those skills without providing a Learning Environment that creates learning practices. Human support and supporting physical environment are needed to complete any learning venture. Enhancing professional learning communities that enable educators to collaborate and share best practices and integrate 21st century skills is ongoing process not just a fixed formula or written prescription. When we learn that such…Continue

I would like to thank Mr Hani for his performance. The topic was interesting and very important but I think the presenter focused more about the use of facebook and twitter that are rather used as social networks and neglected to mention Edmodo and wikis which are in my opinion more elaborated platforms to use for education

Connection to technology makes the classroom a real textbook, as there will be live people connected and sharing to each other. When electronic technologies are added to the normal classrooms, the way of learning and teaching change enormously. With this background, presenter Mirtschin in this hour long presentation mentions about the importance of global education. And it is possible mostly by connecting to the students with people around the world through a computer lab. The presenter…Continue

I have viewed the recording twice and I think a third viewing would be very useful.
Thanks to their participative approach, Jennifer and Jamal took us on a beautiful adventure about collaboration and sharing. This session is the best tutorial for all these seeking to start online exchange. The transitions were smooth and the talking ratio was balanced. One can not feel that the two speakers are thousands of miles away which is another excellent quality of iEARN projects.

Actually, this was the first time for me to join such a big international conference like this. At first, i was little bit afraid of communicating with different people and attending various lectures. However, it was indeed interesting and fascinating for me to share my ideas with other people and having a good discussion about the lectures. The lectures were also not boring at all and were very refreshing and new to me. They helped me to broaden my overall perspective and deepen my…Continue

After following presentation with title Plus World Technology, Change in Education, I found that there was no direct correlation between title and presentation. The presenter focused on giving data regarding social media such as Facebook and Flickr, but I found no information regarding how this technology has change in education.
But I found this presentation quite interesting because he showed so many information regarding a lot of people that use Facebook. People use a lot…Continue

The Global Education Conference offered the perfect professional development opportunity as well as an opportunity to meet and begin collaborations with other educators across the world. I found the format especially helpful in that the sessions were recorded for viewing at difference times or to allow participants to return to refresh their memory or to gain a deeper understanding of the topic/content presented.
As a professor of science and literacy teacher education, I would…Continue
