Empower 18 is the biggest annual conference by ASCD, and it is dubbed the "conference for every educator." This year it's in Boston at the Convention and Exhibition Center. Keynotes this year include Jill Biden, Manny Scott, and Colin Powell. JRNEY's own Erin Dowd will be presenting Using Global Connections to Promote an Inclusive Community of Learning at 8:00 am EST on Saturday, March 24 as part of the Global Engagement track.
After a fantastic conference in Orlando last year, #NAGC17 will be held in Charlotte, NC this year. I'm thrilled to be presenting as part of the Global Awareness Network on Self-Identity and Global Connection: Laying the Groundwork and Inspiring Classroom Practice.
