Event Details

Wendy Kopp will keynote the New York City Global Education Forum at the Avenues World School on May 29th at 6:30pm. UClass and the Asia Society are co-hosting this event to -- for the first time -- unite the visions of teachers, school leaders, policymakers, entrepreneurs, and students (yes, students!) around global education.

If you are a teacher looking to open your classroom walls, a school leader looking to develop 21st century skills in your school or a systems level education innovator looking to reach a more global audience - we welcome you to join this dialogue. 

Join us for an evening of keynotes, a panel discussion, breakout sessions and light snacks. Walk away with a book and an action plan to prepare your classroom or organization to be more global.

Organizer

UClass and The Asia Society

UClass connects classrooms across the world around assignments relevant to K12 standards. First, a teacher finds an assignment from a selection of globally-sourced content. Second, a teacher tweaks it and assigns it directly to students. Third, students do the assignment and give feedback to a global community of students who have done the same assignment. Efficient. Fun. Global.

The Asia Society is the leading educational organization dedicated to promoting mutual understanding and strengthening partnerships among peoples, leaders and institutions of Asia and the United States in a global context. Across the fields of arts, business, culture, education, and policy, the Society provides insight, generates ideas, and promotes collaboration to address present challenges and create a shared future.
