The water shortages in Cape Town have made all South Africans, particularly those living in the Western Cape, very much aware of the importance of saving water. But access to adequate, safe water is a global problem – we can both learn from ideas that are working in other countries, and our learners can contribute ideas of their own.
In February 2018, you can sign up to take part in the iEARN Water is Life project. As part of this global collaborative project, your students will be involved in active research and action-oriented collaboration concerning water as the vital essence of life.
Students will be encouraged and supported in the development of their learning. Working collaboratively with students in schools around the globe they will be encouraged to turn their research into ideas they can take to the community: local, national and global.
The iEarn Water in Life project is aimed at students in primary and secondary schools and will take place between February and June 2018.
To find out more about this project – or to sign up – please see the Water is Life Projects Space
Please let us know if you have signed up – or if you are working on any other projects with a Water Conservation theme. We would like to share your ideas with other teachers.
