Global Education Conference

Page history last edited by David Dodgson 11 years ago

Global Education Conference 2010

The Global Education Conference 2010 took place from  Monday, Nov 15th to Friday Nov, 17th and ran literally round the clock with several sessions starting on the hour every hour! It was a truly global event with an amazing 392 sessions from 62 different countries. All presentations were online and totally free with no registration required. More information can be found at the conference website: http://www.globaleducationconference.com



The sessions were hosted using a programme called Elluminate and all sessions were recorded, archived and are now available for viewing here: http://www.globaleducationconference.com/recordings.html


One of the great things about these online events is that you can 'attend' without having to leave home! You just need your computer and an internet connection and you are set to go. When else can you attend a conference while making yourself some tea and wearing your pyjamas? No travel, no need to give up an entire weekend to attend: just log on and listen. :)

David's Presentation

As part of  those 317 sessions, I had the chance to present my first ever online session. My talk, entitled Directing Young Leaners Towards Effective Self-Assessment, went smoothly with the only hic-cup being an interruption from my son, Jason about halfway though (one disadvantage of being involved in a conference from home!). The event was truly global as I had an audience that stretched from South America to Australia. We were also joined by Andrea meaning I not only had attendees from thousands of kilometres away but also from just a floor up as well!
