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

International Education and Resource Network (iEARN) is a global K-12 online project-based learning network. "The vision and purpose of iEARN is to enable young people to undertake projects designed to make a meaningful contribution to the health and welfare of the planet and its people" (Preamble to the iEARN Constitution). Educators are the key to successful online collaboration. iEARN has trained over 45,000 educators from more than 110 countries since 1988.
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.

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.
