Whether you are a small museum or local historical society, or a large metropolitan museum, we want to encourage you to become a conference partner. Once approved, your organization will be listed with a link, logo, and a short description; and you will be provided with a "spotlight" speaker session in the conference.
Our goal for the conference is to have it be a milestone event, bringing together organizations and individuals from all over the world. We recognize that much (if not most!) of the outreach for this conference will come from individuals, museums, associations and organizations who advertise the conference to their memberships, and we want to recognize and "reward" those who do this!
There are no financial obligations for being a partner organization--all we ask is that you actively promote the conference to your membership and network, and encourage participation as well as presentations and submissions. To apply to be a conference partner organization, please make sure you have joined the Future of Museums online network and fill out a Partner Application.

This is a FREE, asynchronous, online education conference open to EVERYONE. It is organized by educators for educators around the world interested in integrating emerging technologies into classroom practice. A goal of the conference (among several) is to help educators make sense of and meet the needs of a continually changing learning landscape. During the October conference each year, presentations are posted to our conference blog. The conference begins with a pre-conference keynote followed by two weeks of daily presentations. 40 presentations are published in four different strands, with four presentations posted per day. Since the conference is asynchronous you don't need to worry about time zones. View the presentations on-demand whenever it's convenient for you. Archived conference presentations from previous years are also available and accessible from the navigation links (organized by year) at the top of our blog. Our WONDERFUL keynote speakers and strand presenters make our conference an outstanding and ongoing learning experience for educators worldwide. Many schools and districts use these recordings throughout the year to provide professional development for their teachers by viewing them together and extending the experience with discussion, hands-on time and action planning. The K12 Online Conference is a total volunteer effort and is envisioned, planned and implemented by 4 co-convenors, several volunteers who also serve as organizers, and a fabulous group of volunteer presenters.

Melibee Global aims to elevate the discussion about education abroad, culture, diversity and the lifelong path to global citizenship by offering trailblazing tools, speakers and professional development for the global education and travel communities.Melibee is a combination of the founder’s given name Melissa, which means “bee”. (Meli + bee.) As a person who has traveled a lot, I relate to the idea that bees travel, pick up pollen (information) and drop it off in a new location. That is very much what I hope Melibee is – a place for sharing information.
