Win 2 tickets to the ICBL Conference!
From November 2nd to 4th, Galileo University will be host to the International Conference on Computer Assisted Blended Learning (ICBL). This is a great event for educators, e-learning companies, and fans of technology.
The first day of the event will take place at Galileo's campus in Guatemala City, with a plethora of interesting talks, presentations, and networking opportunities. I will be facilitating a round table discussion on "How we can use technology to improve education in developing countries" with the participation of experts from Europe, the U.S. and Guatemala. I'm very excited about this!
The really good news: Galileo University is having a contest with 2 tickets to the first day of the event as the prize! Here is how it works:
You need to write an essay, in English, on the topic: The Use of Technology in Education. The essay should not be longer than 2000 words. You can submit your essay via email to email@example.com by midnight October 24th.
The authors of the two winning essays will win the tickets, and we will use some of the points from your paper in our Round Table discussion (giving credit to you, of course). Free access to a great event AND public recognition? What more can you ask for!
So start writing, people!
