INT’L EDU WEEK
AROUND THE CLOCK
ALL SESSIONS RECORDED
–David Potter (iEARN)
“…the Global Education Conference community is organized around
people rather than tech or content. Although happiness is deﬁnitely part
of the community, the better description might be that the community is
focused on ‘optimizing for professional generosity”.
Professional generosity drives Twitter chats, from #edchat to #kinderchat,
as well as community like Steve’s Classroom 2.0, Edmodo, and most online
educator communities. It acts as the antithesis of the outcompete-the-
world, zero-sum message US educational system promotes at all levels.
Steve and Lucy have a bootstrapped community built for an ‘inﬁnite
runway’ for teaching and learning, rather than quick success or quick
failure. Although it may not seem like a community that will garner much
attention from super angels, Lucy and Steve’s 365/24/7 “anytime,
anywhere” global teaching and learning community is the right model—
scalable, sustainable, impactful, and with a killer ROI, if you want to wait a
generation to measure it.”
