iEARN (International Education and Resource Network) is a non-profit organization made up of over 30,000 schools and youth organizations in more than 130 countries.
iEARN’s vision is to enable young people to undertake projects designed to make a meaningful contribution to the health and welfare of the planet and its people.
iEARN empowers teachers and young people to work together online using the Internet and other new communications technologies. Since iEARN first started in 1988, Over 2,000,000 students have been engaged in collaborative project work and hence ‘learning with the world, not just about it.’
In March 2008 Rota became the representative of iearn in Qatar. Since then, more than 400 teachers from 80+ schools in Qatar have attended ROTA’s iEARN workshops, and participated in a variety of iEARN projects with their students. ROTA organizes an Open House every June to give students and teachers the chance to display their work and achievements and showcase their iEARN projects for the school year.

In this Open House (the 5th since 2008), 350 students and 50 teachers from 19 different schools in Qatar will showcase 27 iEARN projects that they have implemented during the 2011-2012 academic year.
