Summary

Train U.S. teachers to use the Internet in K-12 classrooms for international student collaboration on meaningful projects. The goal is to link every school in the United States with a non-U.S. school.

What is the issue, problem, or challenge?

Peace requires mutual respect and understanding. But American students’ knowledge of other nations is rudimentary; American teachers are not prepared to handle international courses; language instruction in the U.S. does not reflect realities. iEARN-USA creates building blocks for global collaboration through K-12 education. The goal of our “Passport to Global Learning” initiative is to bring more U.S. teachers into our international membership.

How will this project solve this problem?

iEARN trains educators through tailored workshops and online professional development courses to match their curriculum and classroom context with active management of online international and collaborative student projects.

Potential Long Term Impact

Students learn more about the world collaborating with kids from other cultures, and also acquire job-related computer literacy and other project skills.
