Electronic School Magazine: Partners in the GambiaElectronic School Magazine from Kenya

iEARN-Gambia educator, Poncelet Ileleji, is participating in his local YMCA after school program with students ages seven an up. The students will be creating electronic magazines about their school, the environment and emerging technologies from their perspectives, hopes and aspirations.  The project started at the end of June and Poncelet is looking for other schools or classrooms interested in collaborating with his students via the Electronic School magazine project forum.  Electronic School Magazine, facilitated by Mutasem Mafarjeh in Palestine, is an international collaborative project for students of all ages to create school magazines around issues of their interest and share their publications globally. School magazines are a great tool for encouraging various academic and creative skills within students.

To collaborate with Poncelet and/or join the Electronic School Magazine Project visit the forum via the iEARN Collaboration Centre


Join Magical Moments Around the WorldImage from Magical  Moments Around the World

This traveling collaborative book, facilitated by Gal Kleinman in the United States, aspires to unite us all through written words, images and shared experiences. Gal writes, “[Magical Moments around the world] is “dedicated to showing that all humans share a unique spirit connecting us all. It’s about inspiring feelings of compassion and understanding between human beings and the realization that we are an integral part of the natural world.”

This is great way for your students (ages eight and up) to use their creative writing skills and experience being part of an intergenerational global community. Some exciting plans for the project this coming year include an annual magical moments day festival at schools and public places around the world.

The project, for ages five to sixteen will be on-going throughout the year.  Nazima is looking to get started on the project with partners from around the world.

In the Teacher's forum along with her project announcement, Nazima provides some tips for ways in which educators can approach the research they do with their students and also encourages participants to use social media to enhance their collaboration. This a a great oportunity for your students to research events on their own, and learn first-hand from their peers about important events in their own country and around the world on their special day.

Special Needs Student in Japan wants to Communicate with English SpeakersRecent image posted in the iEARN Youth Forum Gallery

Recently posted in the iEARN Teacher’s forum is a message from iEARN-Japan country coordinator, Yoko Takagi asking educators to encourage their students to post in the iEARN Youth Forum and communicate with a high school student, Seiya,  from a special needs school. The school does not offer a program to send students to university, so they are doing practical job training and writing about their experiences. Please have your students log on and communicate with Seiya. He will greatly appreciate hearing from his peers around the world who can share their own experiences and encourage him with his English.

Survey: Collective Stories of Extreme or Informal LearningLogo Indiana University

Professor Curtis J. Bonk, in the Department of Instructional Systems Technology at Indiana University would greatly appreciate your feedback in this survey titled, “Collecting Stories of Extreme or Informal Learning.” This study explores how people learn (and teach) with technology in unique and nontraditional ways. Dr. Bonk says,  “one strand of this research is on global education and social change such as iEARN. My team believes that users of the iEARN …are ideal participants for this study and invite them to take our survey.”

Below is a link to the survey. Individuals must be at least 13 years old to participate.

-The Extreme and Informal Learning Survey - Global Education K-12 Students
-The Extreme and Informal Learning Survey - Global Education Adult Learners

Some additional information from Dr. Bonk, “After clicking on the above link and agreeing to the informed consent form, participants will complete 26 survey questions. Next, they will be asked if they want to answer a series of open-ended items. If they answer “no,” the system will take them to the end of the survey for a few final quick questions.”

Thanks you for taking the time to provide some valuable feedback.

June 2012

Eradication of Malaria project students from Gaborone Secondary School in Botswana and their partners from Alexander Dawson School in Lafayette, Colorado received a lengthy feature on national television in Botswana. The report praised the students’ campaign going door-to-door to raise awareness about malaria prevention. Nine students from Alexander Dawson travelled to Botswana to meet their peers and work together in person on the campaign. Very impressive! The Eradication of Malaria is an on-going project open to everyone throughout the year, however, every summer students from Lafayette and their educator, Bill Meyers, travel to Botswana.

iEARN on 11.11.11 - Document your day! PDF Друк e-mail
Субота, 29 жовтня 2011, 08:20

On Friday 11 November 2011, students and teachers from around the world will document parts of their day using video, photography, writing, and other media. We hope you and your students can join us!  For this special event, we are teaming up with filmmakers at www.onedayonearth.org who worked with us last year on 10.10.10.  Keep in mind that this event is not a video-only event. It is also part of our regular iEARN One Day in the Life project, so we will soon be setting up special discussion areas for 11/11/11, including places for students to publish text posts and other media. (Even if your students use video, we ask that you post a link to it in the iEARN forums, so that the younger students and the non-video-making students can view, enjoy, and respond to them.)  Facilitated by Marta Garcia Lorea (Argentina) and Chris Baer (USA).  Learn more about the project, and connect, on the One Day in the Life Project Page.
