New Pedagogies for Deep Learning - Microsoft in Education blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs

New Pedagogies for Deep Learning - Microsoft in Education blog - Site Home - TechNet Blogs | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

... we announced an even bigger challenge this week, and something that has not been done before in the global education community. Working with organizations such as the Australian Institute of Teaching and School Leadership (ATISL), the Bill and Melinda Gates Foundation, Collaborative Impact, the European SchoolNet, Intel, Michael Fullan Enterprises, OECD, Pearson Education, Promethean and leading academics we have created a vision for improved learning for all students in the release of the New Pedagogies for Deep Learning whitepaper.

iEARN-USA's insight:

The whitepaper does not include iEARN's 25 years of research and practice in the field, but we can confidently say: globally connnected teaching and learning is effective. Big time.

"A Voice for Orphans" is a self portrait video documentary in which a sixteen year old orphan called Kyomugisha Christine recounts her experiences as an orphan living alone. The Adobe Youth Voices learners of PMM Girls School created the media to highlight challenges faced by orphans, how they deal with these challenges and also to show that EVEN orphans live with dreams...

Youth filmmaking at its best.

A Journey of Many Firsts

A Journey of Many Firsts | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

After attending the iEARN International Conference and Youth Summit in Cape Town, South Africa in 2001, Jordan from Chattanooga, Tennessee wrote the following letter to us:

 

A Journey of Many Firsts

"Last summer was a Journey of Many Firsts thanks to receiving the Debra Kurshan iEARN Scholarship. After winning half a scholarship to attend the IEARN Youth Summit Conference in Cape Town, South Africa, my life changed forever. It changed my life in a way that I never dreamed possible before. It's hard to say, but it is like I have moved to a higher level in my life. I've worked so hard to accomplish so many goals in my life that this was a reward for all my efforts. 

I never realized that winning this scholarship would be so much fun and give me the opportunity to experience so many "firsts". Some of the first experiences for me are the following:

-first plane ride...
-first time I knew there was cold weather in Africa
-first time seeing wild animals including the Cheetah , Penguins, and seals
first time seeing a modern mall in Africa, I always thought people lived in huts
-first time seeing a Township and the poverty that went along with living under those conditions
-first time seeing two oceans meet and mountains covered with clouds
-first time meeting and talking with a boy who was a "Child Soldier"
-first time meeting and sharing time with kids from 23 different countries ...
-first boat ride and trip to Robyn Island the prison where Nelson Mandela stayed..
-first time working with a group of kids from around the world on an Environmental Project
-first time attending a Global Conference with teachers and students >from 70 different countries and making a presentation at the closing ceremony
-first time raising funds to cover expenses for a trip
-first time getting a passport

When school started I encouraged my classmates to get involved with the IEARN Learning Circles Computer Chronicles project. We communicated with other kids from Belarus, Kuwait, Netherlands, New Jersey, Miami, and Botswana. These projects connect us to the world by the Internet...

I think this trip made me a better person and I am able to connect with people better from a variety of different cultures. I realize that I am one person but I can make an important difference in the lives of others."


We hope you will consider joining us in Doha, Qatar this July for our 20th annual conference and 17th annual youth summit. Perhaps it can be a journey of many firsts for you.

Hello everyone,


I have arrived from Belarus to Nyirrpi. They have given me a name. The name is Kaki which means brother in the Warlpiri language. They speak Warlpiri here. The kids are going to take photos of me.


It was a long, long trip from Belarus to Nyirrpi.


All the kids want to know if Yayi has arrived.


Love from Kaki

Celebrating 25 Years of iEARN: "Solar Cooking Project, Miami Country Day School, Florida, April 20, 2012" | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

October 2012: Students, parents, faculty, staff and friends gathered at Miami Country Day Schoollocated in Miami, Florida, USA on Friday, April 20, 2012 and set the Guinness Book of World Records™ for “The Most Cookies Baked in One Hour Using Solar Ovens”. Trays of unbaked cookies were placed in 40 smaller solar ovens, as well as, two Villagersolar ovens. After the cookies were baked and 1225 counted....a World Record was set! The event raised over $18,000 USD, which was used to send the 40 solar ovens and a Villager oven to Haiti.

iEARN-USA's insight:

Love to see all iEARN solar cooking school photos on HIstoryPin. Solar cookers aren't usually thought of as educational technology, but they are.
