Global Kids will be presenting at the 2012 Global Education Conference, which takes place online from November 12-17. One of the best things about this conference is that it’s entirely virtual and free, which makes it incredibly accessible and allows for a globally connected experience.
"The conference seeks to present ideas, examples, and projects that help connect educators and classrooms, with a strong emphasis on promoting global awareness, fostering global competency, and inspiring action towards solving real–world problems. It is our hope that attendees will challenge themselves and others to become more active citizens of the world. Let us learn, question, create, and engage in meaningful, authentic opportunities within a global context!” -From GEC Website
