Fall Conference 2015
Educating Global Citizens
This year our theme focuses on educating our students for their roles as world citizens. This conference will ask you to consider the many ways you address global citizenship in your classroom. How could you encourage your students to think globally? How could they engage in activities that go beyond your classroom walls? What technologies could you use to prepare your students for their roles as future leaders in a global society?
