EVENT DATE: Jan 11, 2013
Thank you for the positive response to our year-end Global Connections campaign. We’ve already reached 42% of our goal. That means that we can support more than 200 U.S. teachers and their 5,000 students to learn with, not just about, their peers in Algeria, Bahrain, Egypt, Iraq, Israel, Jordan, Kuwait, Lebanon, Libya, Morocco, Oman, Palestine, Qatar, Saudi Arabia, Syria, Tunisia, UAE, and Yemen.
We are moved by your comments and contributions to this campaign. One of our donors, Jo Anne, dedicates her contribution to iEARN with the following words:
For the world's children, who deserve our love, protection, and support for a life of learning.
We’d love your help over the next two weeks to enable as many U.S. classrooms as possible to participate in this exciting opportunity to engage in hands-on, people-to-people, global collaborative projects at a critical time in U.S.-Middle East relations. Your donation allows us to offer online course scholarships to U.S. high school teachers new to iEARN.
Teachers who complete the course, which will guide educators in evaluating and aligning global projects with curriculum standards, may also have a chance to participate in iEARN’s Annual Conference in Qatar in July 2013. To take part in this opportunity, teachers are encouraged to fill out the statement of interest by December 31, 2012.
Thank you for believing in iEARN’s mission and supporting the amazing educators and students, like the U.S. high school students who studied Arabic in Morocco this summer as part of the NSLI-Y program, with the support of iEARN-USA and iEARN-Morocco.
