Seeking international-focused startups for Global Education Conference

Oct 12, 2012

CALLING STARTUPS WITH A WORLD'S EYE VIEW: For the third year, the essential Global Education Conference run by Steve Hargadon and Lucy Gray will fill the week of November 12-16 with an online jam session of thousands of educators from around the globe. This 24/7 event seeks to connect educators and classrooms around the globe, with a strong dash of cultural awareness. This year, courtesy of Cisco, there will be a special "Technology-Driven Innovation" track that will feature about two dozen product startups and/or organizations actively supporting international education collaboration. (Read the mission statement here.) This is not a platform for pitching products--but rather a venue for discussing the value of international collaboration and the technologies that promote those connections. Those groups will lead 60-minute online sessions and get to post an essay on the blog. Want to apply? EdSurge is thrilled to be helping out! Drop a note to and tell us how you're promoting global collaboration and what your session will be about. Applications are due by November 1--so don't wait!
