 How are countries around the world integrating technology into and increasing global awareness through their educational programs? Why is it vital for the United States to expand the competence of our students through international linkages and partnerships?

The Consortium for School Networking's (CoSN) 9th Annual International Symposium, themed "Harnessing Web 2.0 for Global Understanding in Education," will focus on those and other related questions. The Symposium will take place on Sunday, February 28, 2010, in Washington, DC, a day before the official kickoff of CoSN's 2010 Conference.

The Symposium will focus on the importance of incorporating Web 2.0 tools into formal education to increase global and cultural understanding. The discussion will also address the economic and social barriers that must be removed for the implementation of these tools to be successful.
