What is an iEARN project?
There are over 200 primary and secondary level projects designed and facilitated by teachers and students.  In addition to meeting curriculum needs, projects must answer the question, "How will this project improve the quality of life on the planet?" This vision and purpose is the glue that holds iEARN together, enabling participants to become global citizens who make a difference by collaborating with peers around the world.  Visit the iEARN Teachers Forum andYouth Forum to meet, share ideas, make announcements, and find partners. 

Where do you find these projects?
You can  view the 2013-2014 iEARN Project Book as a PDF (download) or as a FlipBook (online).
