iEARN Workshops Fall 2012

iEARN Open House 2012 Gallery iEARN, the 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’. In March 2008 ROTA became the representative of iEARN in Qatar. Since then, more than 400 teachers from 80+ schools in Qatar has attended ROTA’s iEARN-Qatar workshops, and participated in a variety of iEARN projects with their students.

iEARN projects take on many different forms, but most are rooted in the pedagogy of Project-Based Learning and result in a range of collaborative final “products” or project outcomes that are shared between the participants

In addition to connecting students’ learning with local issues and meeting specific curriculum needs, every iEARN project should answer the question, “How will this project improve the quality of life on the planet?”
