iEARN-USA GEA and staff members

iEARN-USA Global Education Ambassadors and staff members

iEARN-USA supports a select group of leaders in our U.S. network of educators to represent iEARN as Global Education Ambassadors (GEAs). These GEAs promote innovative global education both inside and outside of the classroom through global collaborative projects and virtual exchange between teachers and students in the US and internationally.

The iEARN-­USA Global Education Ambassadors conduct outreach and professional development activities. Global Education Ambassadors have years of experience and in­-depth knowledge of virtual exchange, or technology­-enabled, sustained, people­-to-­people education programs, through project-­based learning. The Global Education Ambassadors promote global education and virtual exchange, lead online project and course facilitation, conduct workshops, create resources, and present in special global education initiatives and conferences throughout the year.
