AYV Lead Educator Training in San Jose (Adobe Featured Blogs) | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

Last week, Lead Educators from 13 countries around the globe gathered at Adobe Headquarters in San Jose, CA for a week of hands-on professional development training. The 27 Educators were split up into groups to explore topics that pose challenges for educators working with youth and media, such as promoting youth leadership and ownership, brainstorming and idea generation, and amplifying youth voice. Group members worked together for 4 days to create a video project addressing their given topic, sharing stories, experiences, and best practices with each other throughout the process. It was an intense week of collaboration workshops with excitement around every corner!

- Middle school girls making a difference via iEarn | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it
My Global Ed class is composed of fifth and sixth grade girls who meet at lunch/recess to try to make a difference in the world. If your daughters have come home and asked for plastic bags, empty water bottles, yet another batch of brownies for a bake sale, a shovel for ditch digging¾be assured that they are in the midst of one of their collaborative projects, two of which have become part of the Middle School curriculum.

 

The fifth and sixth grade girls in my school, Springside Chestnut Hill Academy, were involved in four of iEARN's projects:

Lucy Gray mentioned Professional Generosity, a phrase she describes in her TedxTalk, and I can’t think of better examples than the people on this panel.

Рецепт успіху від звичайного шкільного Євроклубу .: Ресурсний центр ГУРТ | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

Кожного року ми приймаємо участь у міжнародних проектах iEARN - тепер у нас друзі в усьому світі: Тайвань, Канада, США, Білорусь, Росія, Словенія, Польща, Болгарія, Вірменія, Німеччина, Чехія… Хіба могли раніше наші учні мріяти про такі можливості? Також у цьому році ми почали створювати електронну книгу пам’яті, збираючи інтерв’ю у ветеранів та дітей війни про жахливі події Великої Вітчизняної війни та долі радянських людей. А у березні ми провели Історичну майстерню-тренінг “Через діалог – до взаєморозуміння поколінь та збереження історичної пам’яті” для представників євроклубів з сусідніх шкіл, учнів нашої школи та ветеранів з Комінтернівської Ради ветеранів та стали переможцями Всеукраїнського проекту «Я пам’ятаю наш внесок».

Whenever a major event happens in the iEARN community, like today’s launch of the new Collaboration Centre, the words of Argentine teacher Daniel Reyes come to mind: No one person knows so much that he can’t learn from others, and no one person knows so little that he can’t teach others.

Technology Teaching and Learning: Research, Experience, & Global Lessons Learned | EDC, Inc. | iEARN in Action | Scoop.it

Globally, technology has been regarded as an instrument of, indeed a shortcut to, school reform. This monograph examines educational technology initiatives in Lebanon, Jordan, the United Kingdom, and the United States over the past decade and draws lessons that can help nations moving forward with their own national educational technology initiatives. It demonstrates that technology has not failed educational systems. Rather, these systems have made successful implementation of innovations like technology impossible by failing to develop the terrain, the conditions, the initiatives, the supports—the reforms—necessary to ensure that innovations take root and flourish.
