Throughout this class we have learned a lot about global collaboration. This will be my final blog post of this semester and I decided to reflect upon the class and also reference some of the case studies that are discussed at the end of our textbook, the Global Educator. These last few pages of the book conclude what we have been learning throughout the semester. There are 10 total case studies at the end of the chapter but I will only include a few that I enjoyed researching.
The K12 Online Conference: This is a free, online, annual event run totally by volunteer educators such as Peggy George and Wesley Fryer. Below we can watch their most recent event, Creativity Strand Panel Discussion. As we can see, groups of educators from all over the globe discuss this topic.
The Global Education Conference: This was created by Steve Hargadon and Lucy Gray. This is similar to the conference above but includes students, educators, as well as organizations at all levels. Unlike the one above, it seems to be only audio.
The Centre for Global Education: One last case study I would like to mention is this Canadian-based organization founded by Terry Godwaldt. This organization develops and delivers virtual projects to engage and empower youth as agents of change. They connect them them with the people and places that they are learning about.
