Reaching out to Those Affected by Hurricane Sandy | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it
Our sincerest thoughts are with all of you from the Caribbean islands up through the eastern coast of the U.S. and Canada who have been affected by Hurricane Sandy this past week. When a natural disaster strikes, it’s a humbling reminder of just how fragile we are beneath the power of mother nature.

 

It’s also in times like these that support and knowledge sharing as part of a global community can provide comfort. ...

U.S. Department of State Announces Global Connections 2.0 Program Partnership with iEARN

U.S. Department of State Announces Global Connections 2.0 Program Partnership with iEARN | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it
The International Education and Resource Network (iEARN), a leader in online collaborative project-based learning, announces the launch of the Global Connections 2.0 program for teachers and students from the United States and 19 countries from the Middle East and North Africa. This virtual exchange program, designed and funded by the U.S. Department of State’s Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, focuses on developing leadership and technology skills for teachers and youth to explore global issues through online, project-based collaboration.

 

“This reciprocal exchange will enrich our students’ lives through globally minded leadership development,” noted Kahraman Arafa, Country Coordinator at iEARN Palestine, one of the participating countries. “Our educators and youth will benefit from the opportunity to exchange ideas around youth empowerment and free expression with partner educators and youth in the United States and other countries.”

 

As part of the project, iEARN will collaborate with the Buck Institute for Education to develop cutting-edge tools and resources in Arabic and English to facilitate teachers’ use of Project Based Learning around global themes. In fostering digital dialogue, the Global Connections 2.0 program will provide professional development opportunities to 300 teachers including trainings, online courses, and a master trainer workshop at the 2013 iEARN Annual Conference in Doha, Qatar.

The iEARN - Kids Can Make a Difference Finding Solutions to Hunger Partnership...by Lisa Jobson

The iEARN - Kids Can Make a Difference Finding Solutions to Hunger Partnership...by Lisa Jobson | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

When Kids Can Make a Difference became a program of iEARN in 2010, it was clear from the start that the missions of the two organizations were a fit. As we explored how KIDS' resources like the Finding Solutions to Hunger Guide could be used to enhance iEARN food security and hunger-related projects, excitement about the partnership grew. And, then, as is always the case in iEARN, some creative teachers came along and created the real magic.

In the iEARN Holiday Card Project, facilitated by Judy Barr in Australia, teachers and students prepare an envelope containing holiday cards and send them using snail mail to the other schools in their group between October and December. Students are invited to make Christmas, New Year's, Hanukkah, Kwanzaa, Eid, or other cards celebrating their special holidays. Students are encouraged to explain how their family and their community celebrates, the type of food that is eaten and other traditions associated with the event. Each school will be placed in a group with approximately seven other schools and will prepare either handmade or purchased cards to send to each of the other schools.
