On Sunday September 13 1300 UTC Learning2gether met with Lucy Gray and Peggy George to learn about Global Collaboration Day coming up on Sept 17 http://www.globalcollaborationday.org/about.html, a first annual demonstration of global collaboration for educators, encouraging students, teachers, organizations and companies to host virtual events involving technology on September 17, 2015.

The primary goal of this whole-day event is to demonstrate the power of global connectivity in classrooms, schools, universities, and institutions of informal learning and around the world. Global Collaboration Day will introduce others to the tools, resources, projects and programs that are available to educators today. Tag: 

Follow up mail to GEC Community Members –

Steve Hargadon and I are tremendously pleased with the participation for Global Collaboration Day on September 17th. Approximately 325 schools and organizations and 36 outreach partners from 51 different countries participated in 149 collaborative online events. Many projects were categorized as requiring asynchronous participation, so you may find a few are still running. Save September 15, 2016, as the official date for our next GCD!

We would like invite you to join Global Collaboration Day, our first annual demonstration of global collaboration for educators. We are encouraging students, teachers, organizations and companies to host virtual events involving technology on September 17, 2015. (And since September 17 takes nearly 48 hours to start and finish across the globe, check out the calendar in your own time zone for all the activities!)

The primary goal of this whole day event is to demonstrate the power of global connectivity in classrooms, schools, universities, and institutions of informal learning and around the world. Global Collaboration Day will introduce others to the tools, resources, projects and programs that are available to educators today. We currently have over 130 schools and organizations representing about 29 different countries; 25 outreach partners have also committed to joining this worldwide event. Approximately 52 events are listed on our site and this list is growing by the day. There is no cost to participate at any level.

Here is how people and organizations can participate:

Examples of events that are currently scheduled include a Twitter chat on global learning, an asynchronous Twitter poll on chocolate, a survey on sunlight around the world, and a class live streaming using Periscope. Many organizations are hosting webinars and other activities to introduce educators to tools, resources and programs that will help them connect their classroom to the world. We recommend that activities be simple in scope and have low barriers to entry in order to attract participants. Ideas are listed on our host page. Events can be geared towards any audience including students, teachers, parents, and organization leaders.

Our current partner list includes TES, Edmodo, Remind, AFS-USA, iEARN-USA, the Global Campaign for Education – US Chapter, SMART, VIF International Education, and Edutopia. (We would love to add your organization to this list as well.)For further information, please take a look at our website and press release. Also, check out this recent article on us from eSchool News and Lucy’s Edutopia blog post.

Thanks and we hope to hear from you regarding this special day!

We try to use Chatwing as much as possible given the nature of herding cats, so as to include people in the stream in a conversation they can participate in. However, those in the chat moved their discussion into the Hangout chat (where on my computer, I can’t copy / paste it). But Nellie Deutsch can do that, and she sent me what appears below:

Thank you, Peggy :)

Peggy George
9:50 AM
Halima, that is my “About.me” page. Is that the link that won’t open for you?
Nellie, each week we meet on Saturdays and often have between 30-50 people. We record everything so many people also watch recordings if they can’t make it on Saturdays.

me
9:51 AM
That’s great, Peggy.
less on webinars

Halima Ozimova
9:52 AM
Peggy I am reading Your site

Peggy George
9:52 AM
Is this the link that won’t open for you? It’s working for me so maybe it’s just a bandwidth issue for you. https://about.me/peggy_george
I often go back to watch recordings from previous years!
I also love to be able to invite presenters to come and do their presentations for us on Classroom 2.0 LIVE if I think it is something our participants might really find valuable. :-)
I have found some outstanding presenters in the Global Ed Conference

me
9:54 AM

yes it is Robert (website). Are you referring to Blackboard Collaborate or the website?

Robert Wachman
9:57 AM

Peggy PLZ,POST here Your E-mail!

me
9:58 AM
Peggy, I lost the link to the calendar?
google calendar is a life saver

Peggy George
10:01 AM
Robert, I think you can view the recordings from the archives if they are mp4 video recordings. If they are blackboard collaborate recordings you would need the app to view them
great Nellie! yes the calendar link is on the home page for Learning Revolution

Robert Wachman
10:02 AM
I’ve got a laptop I can use, too. but I usually have my iPad in the kitchen, just easiest.

Diving into the archives of sites like Classroom2.0, Webheads, and my own sites offers great value, but we’ve not figured effective ways to encourage and facilitate that.
