I really enjoyed Keynote Speaker, Kathleen Schwille's presentation on GeoEducation: Preparation for Life in an Interconnected World. It is so true that Global competence is "vital for 21st Century business". I feel that educators cannot do enough to prepare our students with skills that they will need in the near future, skills such as "geographic literacy". I appreciated learning about resources and free online learning for teachers!

The recent Global Education Conference (totally online for 5 full days, totally free) had a number of student-led and student-centred presentations. What a great experience for these students to present to a global audience, and what a unique opportunity for the audience to hear from the students about their global…Continue
Once again, GEC offered more fascinating sessions than I had the time to absorb! I was lucky that bot the opening Welcome and the Closing Wrap-Up were held at a time that worked well for me such that I felt that I was present for "the whole thing".
It would be difficult to pick a favorite session but high on my list would be the opening keynote by Christie Vilsack on "Developing Partnerships". I found it exciting and inspirational to learn of the many ways that US AID is engaged…Continue

This was my first experience on this conference and the quality on the expositors were high. I was in a couple of ones and the content was very good and specially when learning experiences were shared and it become a valuable source for looking new strategies. Also it was interesting to hear the commitment of students during a presentation and how they can look in different ways many topics that can be considered as complex.

It was the first time I attended in Global Education Conference. I worried a lot, because I am not a presenter, just an everyday teacher who teaches small children in a very small place. For me it was a fantastic experience to hear others talking about the way they collaborate with other children , schools organisations in other parts of the world. I got some great idea I am going to use in the future with my students. For me, living in Hungary it was a great adventure to attend in a…Continue

Thank you Rana for bringing this issue to our attention in this conference!
Loved the quote:" Reading improves the theory of mind"
One of things that grabbed my attention in Rana Dajani's presentation was creating Reading Rooms. I see it as a very good message for urging new generation to read. It isn't just a place to read in class, or Library or wherever that room is set up, but it is the matter of giving the idea that we need to read, and we need a specific space where we…Continue

This is the second time that I`ve attended sessions of Global Education Conference. Last year I tried to attend more practical sessions but this year I`ve paid more attention to theory and general questions of global thinking, citizenship and collaboration. I live in Ukraine and our country only starts its way towards global citizenship but we are on the right way!
Inherently I`m a practitioner, not a theorist, so your annual conference is a great chance for me to enlarge my…Continue
