A remarkable collaboration has evolved over the past half century of international organizations dedicated to the wise use of technology in education. The road toward collaborative efforts has not always been easy, especially given the changing political, economic, social, and educational challenges. This presentation examines selected organizations and their ongoing role in bringing together diverse international entities toward a common goal, education on a global scale. The result has been a series of conferences, publications, seminars, and personnel exchanges over the years, transcending cultural differences, languages, and locations, extolling unique benefits that have accrued for all participants. What follows is the story of one man's journey across seven continents, multiple languages, diverse arrays of transport, housing, cuisine, beverages, and customs, acclimating to all where possible, adjusting to multiple stimulae. The tale then concludes by sharing recent experiences and a unique set of attributes involving three differing cultures requiring finesse, diplomacy, and fortitude to accommodate each in their own way. The session will conclude with a panel discussion by Professors Pan, McIsaac, Doyle, and Tu. Both Professors Cornell and McIsaac will be communicating via Skype from Florida and Arizona respectively.
