This week is Global Leadership Week, with many free events happening all week! Global Leadership Week is described on their website as a, “weeklong convening of virtual and face to face events designed to celebrate leadership through global action in K20 education. GLW is an opportunity for education leaders to learn from one another and share effective principles in leadership, particularly within the context of an interconnected, global age. During Global Leadership Week, partner organizations, companies, school districts and individual schools will design and host virtual events to showcase thought leadership. These events will be listed on a GLW calendar posted to our website.
The Global Education Conference Network is organizing GLW and hosting two flagship events. One event will be a face-to-face networking Global Leadership Summit at Edmodo headquarters in Silicon Valley on April 25th followed by a virtual mini-conference, Global Leadership Day, on April 26th. During both convenings, high profile global education and ed tech leaders will participate in discussions within a high energy, engaging format. These events will be streamed and recorded for public consumption; the subsequent recordings will be used as living artifacts to continually inspire leaders. All events will be free of charge to attendees.”
As a part of these events, I had originally planned a session to give an overview and collect feedback on Classroom Bridges. After I scheduled the event, I was asked to participate in a larger session to highlight Classroom Bridges at the exact same date and time, so I decided to team forces! This session will not only highlight Classroom Bridges, but it will highlight other resources you can use to make global classroom connections. Event details below.
