Steve Hargadon, creator of Classroom 2.0 and collaborative extraordinaire, is one of the chairs of this week’s 2010 Global Education Conference. What’s so unique about this event? Everything!
The conference is entirely virtual, embracing the full potential of synchronous (Elluminate) and asynchronous (Twitter) web technologies to bring educators together from around the globe to share, discuss and learn together. The event is completely free, runs from Monday, November 15-19, and will include 397 sessions from 62 countries around the world — WOW!

Here are more details from Steve — please help spread the word!
The conference is a collaborative and world-wide community effort to significantly increase opportunities for globally-connecting education activities. Our goal is to help you make connections with other educators and students, and for this reason the conference is very inclusive and also provides broad opportunities for participating and presenting. While we have an amazing list of expert presenters and keynote speakers, we will also have some number of presenters who either have not presented before or have not presented in Elluminate–please come to encourage and support them, as they are likely to be a little nervous!
There is no formal registration required for the conference, as all the sessions will be open and public, broadcast live using the Elluminate platform, and available in recorded formats afterwards. There is a limit of 500 live attendees for any given session. To verify that your computer system is configured correctly to access Elluminate, please run the self-test at http://www.elluminate.com/support.
Please tell your friends and colleagues about this event, and watch for the Twitter hashtag #globaled10. See you online!
