Consider joining a Global Learning Circle – a great way to collaborate with other teachers and classes globally

What are Global Learning Circles?

The Global Learning Circles project attempts to draw participation from iEARN members in as many countries as possible.  Teachers and students work together in small groups to learn about each other by exchanging cultural information and working together in collaborative project work.   

  • There are two sessions each year, September – January and January – May. 
  • This session begins September 30, 2016, and ends on January 15, 2017. Apply ASAP
  • The next session starts in February 2017

To join iEARN Learning Circles, you must complete a placement form at least two weeks before the beginning of the session. Once you complete the placement form you will be placed in a Circle for the next session.
