Learning Circles – Register Now for September 30th Start!

iEARN Learning Circles is a fantastic opportunity for K-12 iEARN educators and students to take part in a highly interactive and facilitated project experience among a small number of schools located throughout the world. There is a topic of interest for everyone in all grade levels. Participants will identify and implement a classroom project related to the theme, then gain input and feedback from partner classrooms before developing a final product. As you will be guided by facilitators along each step of the process, Learning Circles is an excellent choice for beginners, as well as experienced iEARN teachers.
The 5-week long Hello World: Learning Circles for Elementary, Middle, and High School teachers and students who have never participated in an online project or Learning Circle will be offered once again.  This 5-week experience will introduce teachers and students to the basics of online projects and Learning Circles, including Teacher Introductions, Culture Sharing, and an Information Exchange.  If you have never participated in an online project or Learning Circle project before and you would like to know what it is like, this is the place to begin your iEARN experience.
