The purpose of the Global LEAD Summit is to bring much needed attention and discussion to critical issues in Latino education worldwide. This year’s Global LEAD will focus in engaging dialogue in order to help create bridges between Latino Education in Latin American and the US. Representatives from several ministries of education will be in attendance. This global summit will include participants attending the event from across the country and the world via simultaneous live cast.
The summit organizers aim to establish a formal Researcher-Practitioner Partnership in Global Educational Research. The intent of this international research team will be to:.
- Make a collective commitment to identify and investigate relevant educational issues
- Make joint decisions to develop innovative models that will lead to improving student achievement, social and behavioral development
- Build an international alliance between researchers and participants in the planning, implementation, and dissemination of the research process, findings, and sustainability (development and implementation of future research projects)
The summit will include four
panels and a morning and an afternoon plenaries, which will be organized into
research areas: Science, Technology, Engineering, Mathematics (STEM),
biliteracy/ESL/TESOL, teaching/pedagogy, arts and education;
immigration/migration, community development, and publication and
dissemination. Representatives from different countries will form part of each
panel ensuring that different sectors of the world will be able to discuss some
of the initiatives within those research fields.
