    Thanks for your submission to present at the 2011 Global Education Conference. Your proposal looks promising, but could benefit from some additional language that ties your work to the conference theme of global collaboration. The conference seeks to present ideas, examples and initiatives related to connecting educators and classrooms around the world with an emphasis on promoting global awareness and instilling global competency in students. This is not a general education conference nor a technology conference. Please review your submission and adjust accordingly, so that participants clearly understand how your work fits into the mission of the conference.

    Hi Samuel -


    Thanks for submitting a proposal for the conference. Our focus is on presenting globally engaging opportunities for educators, and perhaps you can refine your proposal to reflect how Microsoft OneNote can impact global collaborative projects. Examples and language related to this would be very helpful. Technology is definitely an underlying theme of the conference, but proposals should focus less on tools and more on how global competency and awareness can be fostered through the use of collaborative tools. Hope this makes sense!
