The official announcement is forthcoming, but here's a peek into what's ahead...
The Softalk Apple Project and FactMiners are pleased to announce that we will host a Global Collaboration Day Event "all day" on September 17th.! :-)
Details of our event will be forthcoming and announced here as an update to this news item. Time is short, so we're in crunch mode to be ready for this fun event.
On September 17th, students, teachers, and organizations – including grassroots Citizen Science and Citizen History projects like ours – will celebrate global collaboration! On this day, experienced global educators and professionals will host connective projects and events and invite public participation. The primary goals of this whole day event are to demonstrate the power of global connectivity in classrooms, schools, institutions of informal learning and universities around the world, and to introduce others to the tools, resources and projects that are available to educators today.
At The Softalk Apple Project and FactMiners, we believe in the power of connected learners... Let's show others what globally connected learning looks like on September 17th! Keep an eye out for our event and for other Global Collaboration Day events. And, if you are a connected learner organization of any stripe, we encourage you to join in and host a virtual event. Everyone everywhere learning together... start with a day, make it a habit.
