We made it back! We arrived home Tuesday afternoon...wow! What a trip! I'm speechless!
The goal of the Conference was for International student teams to develop a new global collaborative project that will address a vital social issue. All of the teams did well; the four best proposals are now competing on the Conference Ning. You can go to the Ning, read about the projects and then vote for the one that you believe gives the best 'pitch' and is worthy of launching. The winning project will begin sometime during February of '09.
In addition...we have posted most of our pictures and our reflections on the Conference Ning. Take a few minutes and surf through the site. You'll be amazed at just how well the students connected with each other and at the projects they produced. Our very own Karla and Steve are on two of the final four teams! Wow!
