Global Education Conference

Last week (Nov. 12-17) marked the annual Global Education Conference 2012.  This conference hosted hundreds of presentations with the global ed theme from all over the world.  I was fortunate to present the EVPD (Educator Virtual Prof. Development) series which showcased over 10 teachers who presented Web 2.0 tools to my staff and world in a virtual environment.  This 3-hour workshop highlighted  12 tools in a "smackdown" format where presenters had 10 minutes to show the tool and it's effectiveness with students in education.  

You can listen to the recording to find out more!  Also check out the EVPD wiki to see videos and resources about each tool.

Some of my global colleagues presented as well.  In some of their presentations, I contributed a slide if I was involved in some way.  Others I attended as support or just to learn more about what they were presenting:
