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.

Solution

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.

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.

Additional Documentation

This project has provided additional documentation in a Microsoft Word file (projdoc.doc).
