Psssst.... this is just a quick heads-up ahead of the official announcement forthcoming...
FactMiners & The Softalk Apple Project 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 announcement. 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 FactMiners and The Softalk Apple Project, we believe in the power of connected learners... Let's show others what globally connected learning looks like on September 17th! Keep an ear out for our and 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.
