Walnut Creek, California (EastBayDaily) — This September, CUE and The Learning Revolution Project will host the first ever Online Summit featuring Google for Education, which will highlight the work of Google Certified Teachers, Google Education Trainers, Google Educators and Googlers themselves. This event will take place entirely online, and all sessions will be recorded via Google Hangouts on Air. Registrants will have access to recordings indefinitely.
Registration for the weekend summit is $40 and is now open at http://www.giesummit.org. This low price includes unlimited access to the archives as mentioned as well as a one-year membership to CUE. The online summit will take place September 6 & 7, 2014, 9am-6pm Pacific (GMT-7).
“We are excited to bring this new format of professional development and collaboration to educators,” said Mike Lawrence, CUE’s CEO. “Most brick-and-mortar conferences, including our own, require attendees to pick and choose between sessions. By offering unlimited archival access to all the sessions, we ensure that attendees can see everything.” Steve Hargadon, founder of the Learning Revolution Project, whose online events have had hundreds of thousands of attendees, adds: “The travel time and expenses of face-to-face events can make them hard to attend–having a virtual conference significantly opens the door to easier participation.”

The Internet is shifting the boundaries of these worlds, and we believe that as they increasingly overlap and integrate these conversations will be critical to framing and preparing for the learning revolution starting to take place.
