Date: Thursday 15 November 2012

Time: 2pm Pacific






We are participating for the first time in a very interesting online conference called the Global Education Conference - a 5-day, 24 hours per day online conference with presenters from around the world. The conference is underway NOW through Friday Noon (Pacific Time).


If you’re interested in experiencing what this is like, feel free to join me as I lead a panel discussion between three HP Catalyst project teams that are making STEM(+) learning global. Through this session you will be introduced to innovative ways to engage students in experiences that expand their international perspective on STEM(+) topics. The 60 minute panel is designed to give you ample time to interact with the panelists: Tonia Lovejoy, Reach the World (USA) Lauren Silver, Computer History Museum (Silicon Valley, USA) Adriana Holguín, Prepa UDEM Academia de Informática (Mexico) Lee Ann Heller, Karen Kulish and Elizabeth Fridinger, Stamford Public Schools (USA). This live webcast will be on Thursday 15 November 2012 at 2pm Pacific Time, using the link above.


We hope you can join us!
