The human mind, an ocean full of mysteries, an abyss of knowledge, remain forever misunderstood.We keep in it feelings,information, laughter,tears and thus it becomes a precious chest. All within itself, our imagination has its roots that grow continuously in thousands of ways.
We need the free expression of what we feel and think to self-knowledge.

Adobe Youth Voices Awards Finalist: Blindness

Adobe Youth Voices Awards Finalist: Blindness | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

 

A young woman walks through her world blindly. Not noticing anything along her way, she is quickly confronted by another, who brings sight to her life. It's important to help others and pay attention to your surroundings. You must not ignore others and do what you can to help those in your community.

Adobe Youth Voices Awards Finalist: It's All About Perspective | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it
Everybody has feelings like anxiety, fear, shyness but some happen to be trapped in a world dominated by them. Just wishing that everything would be ok is not at all enough. Instead of waiting for a change, try and watch things from a different perspective. Be the reflected image that you wish to see in the mirror of your soul. This video is meant as a piece of inspiration for everybody that wants to make a change for someone else, for themselves.

Adobe Youth Voices Awards Finalist: Get A LIfe!

Adobe Youth Voices Awards Finalist: Get A LIfe! | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it
More and more teenagers spend their time on socializing networks, locking themselves between the walls of their room and this can create isolation from the real world, generating depressive states in many cases. Under such circumstances, the victims need someone to help them, need real friends to be there for them and make them understand that life is real not virtual, and real communication is face to face not in front of the computer.The message is for youth not to let negative thinking overwhelm them, to think positive, and get a life with their friends.

In this film we worked collaboratively with the Oaxaca International Book Fair to create a narrative which explains what kinds of young people read books, and why it is good to read books.

Connie Yowell on Digital Media and Learning, Then and Now | Spotlight on Digital Media and Learning | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

"We’ve been in terrific conversations with the State Department, and groups such as Global Nomads, iEARN, The New York Academy of Sciences, and others, to understand how we can connect kids in Chicago, LA, and New York to kids in other cities around the world who may be trying to solve similar problems locally. We hope to bring them together to talk about what it means to try and solve their local problems—from water demand to safety issues—in a global context. At the same time, they can begin to build empathy by seeing the ways they’re similar and the ways they’re different"

Adobe Youth Voices Awards Finalist: Life

Adobe Youth Voices Awards Finalist: Life | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it
My movie is called "Life". I chose to reflect my thoughts using visual poetry, because in my opinion the message I brought up is very suitable for this king of expression. The theme is inspired by all the feelings a person can get once he travels through life. The ups and downs are visually represented by nature scenes. A swan means purity, a painting means beauty, a dandelion inspires fragility. The subject is addressed to people who are willing to find motivation and inspiration. Someone who watches the film can become absorbed by the music and get involved into the atmosphere. Finding beauty in simple things is an ability that everyone should poseses in order to define themselves as pleased and happy people.

April 2014 YES Student of the Month: Rabia Yasmin from Pakistan | YES Program | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

Congratulations to the April YES Student of the Month, Rabia Yasmin from Pakistan! An aspiring doctor, Rabia launched her community service this year by joining the local emergency squad in Suffolk, VA, along with her exchange sister and her host mother, Narendra Pleas. Since completing her Red Cross CPR and First Aid certification, she has accrued 110 hours of service on the emergency squad alone. Her additional work with her school’s Key Club, International Club, and basketball team (as score and stats-keeper), and her assistance at church functions bring her total volunteer hours to 177. Ms. Pleas calls Rabia “a loving person with an enormous desire to help others and a strong sense of purpose.”

KIDS Spring 2014 Newsletter

KIDS Spring 2014 Newsletter | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

This is a very special issue of the newsletter as in reality Jane and I never in our wildest dreams thought that KIDS would still be an operating organization for twenty years. Not only do we celebrate our 20th Anniversary, but the program continues to grow and continues to fulfill its mission to help young people understand that it is within their power to make a difference in their community and world.

 

We have selected a few articles written by educators/teachers from the hundreds that have appeared in the newsletter since our first issue was published in 1994. In that time KIDS has grown from a subscriber base of 20 to current 13,000. The following selections demonstrate the power of the KIDS Teacher Guide when in the hands of creative teachers.
