iEARN-USA's co-facilitated online courses guide educators in evaluating and aligning global projects with curriculum standards as part of an integrated project plan. Educators develop a unique project plan for their own classroom, working alongside other course participants from several other countries.
This collaborative learning experience allows educators to communicate and network with colleagues around the world who can make teaching and learning more fun and interesting throughout year.
"When kids know that some other kids halfway across the world are watching and waiting to see evidence of their progress and learning, it raises the level of anticipation and suspense. This is why I really want to get my students involved with iEARN projects." Lisa Childres, Kansas City Missouri
"Some of my best friends are teachers that I have met through iEARN." Nancy Petrella, Middletown, Delaware
