All projects within iEARN are designed and facilitated by participants to fit their particular curriculum and classroom needs and schedules.  There is no single model for iEARN project involvement. 

Included below are a set of iEARN Project Integration Plans and Success Stories in which iEARN educators and facilitators share their experiences, and provide their tips and suggestions for how to integrate global online project work into in and out-of-school activities.

The project plans below can also be found on the Buck Institute for Education (BIE)'s project database.
