Dear Colleagues,

Mark Your Calendars -- The 10th Annual Megaconference Jr. Global Videoconference for Schools will be held on May 2, 2013

~~ It's the 10 year anniversary of Megaconference Jr!! ~~

Be a part of this historic event to celebrate ten exciting years of student driven collaborative global exchange and awareness through videoconferencing. 

Overview - What is Megaconference Jr? 
Megaconference Jr, now celebrating its 10th year, is an award-winning international program designed to give students in elementary through secondary schools around the world the opportunity to communicate, collaborate and contribute to each other's learning in real time, using advanced network enabled multi-point videoconferencing technology. Megaconference Jr. is open to all school classrooms (students ages 5-23) around the world and is designed to be "student-driven." Students are encouraged to do the planning, preparation and presenting on their own, with support from their teachers, coaches, and/or other experts in the field to help them along the way. 

Call for Proposals 
This year, to honor the 10 year anniversary of Megaconference Jr., we're going back to the original event format with submitted proposals on any topic, theme, or presentation idea you and your students can dream up! Presentations should be approximately 20-25 minutes in length. Proposals that encourage interactivity and foster global partnerships will be favored but all topics/themes/ideas are welcome. Be creative! Submit a joint proposal for your work with a school in China or your project with a school just across town. Deadline for proposals is March 1, 2013.
