I learned about The Global Educational Conference last year through a colleague. I joined some sessions and I loved it.

This year I impatiently waited for the conference;  Despite some technical difficulties( connectivity), I managed to attend what turned out to be an amazing learning journey: innovative ideas to try, practical steps to use,successful experiences and projects to share, experienced educators and experts to discuss with and connect to... in brief, the conference gave me the opportunity to answer many questions, find solutions to some problems, learn new things, and see the "harvest" of PBL when appropriately used and how it transforms learning into a more engaging , enjoyable and purposeful experience.

 

Thanks to this global community, I got inspiring ideas that I will certainly use with my own students. I am no longer worried about how to help my students acquire 21st century skills; What's more, belonging to a group gives a sense of security and encourages educators to delve into new expériences more confidently.

 

I still have a long list of recorded sessions to view, but I have already taken interesting notes , and saved useful links. I would like to thank all presenters, moderators, participants and all those who contributed to the organization and success of this event! It has been a pleasure learning and sharing with you all. Next year, I hope to be able to join the conference as a volunteer ( moderator/ presenter).

These people have made so much effort to make our "trip" enjoyable and informative. I feel I owe them so much and I look forward to sharing my past , present and oncoming expériences/ thoughts... with such a global audience of commited educators! Thanks a million!

Greeting from Morocco
