Global Learn Day - October 2005

"It's like the Academy Awards for global education,"
says GLD founder John Hibbs.

What is Global Learn Day?

Global Learn Day is a breathtaking 24-hour, non-stop online collaborative forum -- a worldwide celebration of learning!

Launched in 1996 by the Benjamin Franklin Institute of Global Education and co-organized by Global SchoolNet, this annual event features global learning champions from all corners of the globe. It opens in the South Pacific - where the planet begins the new day, and then travels west through each time zone -- culminating in Hawaii and Guam. It's purpose is to showcase those doing exceptional work in the knowledge arena.
