The 2010 Global Education Conference will be held November 15 – 19, 2010, online. This free, no-registration conference is a collaborative and world-wide community effort "to increase opportunities for globally-connecting education activities and initiatives.” There is no formal registration required and the sessions will be open and public. They will use the Elluminate platform and be broadcasting live. Sessions will also be available in archived formats later.
An impressive list of sessions available is now online. The sessions are categorized by these Tracks: Teacher Track Student Track Curricular Track Policy and Leadership Track Global Issues Track
I know of one person presenting from NJ. "Using Google Apps to Foster Global Collaborations" will be presented by Lisa Thumann, from the CMSCE at Rutgers University. Her session description: "One of the most effective ways to get students collaborating with each other is to use tools that are easily accessible. If the tools are browser agnostic, have no demand for installations or updates, and are intuitive, the collaboration is more likely to be effective. Together, let’s look at Google Forms, Docs and Sites as a suite of tools to facilitate and foster Global collaborations."
You can also follow Twitter posts now and during the conference with the hashtag #GlobalEd10.
