iEARN 2018 Conference

Global Collaboration for Sustainable Development is the theme for the annual iEARN Conference this year. The 2018 International Conference and Youth Summit coincides with the 30th Anniversary of iEARN, which started in 1988 with the first project collaborations between schools in New York and schools in Moscow. The iEARN annual conference is an important, in-person gathering to celebrate ongoing virtual work and has been hosted by a different country each year since 1994. The event will reinforce communications and develop partnerships between educators and youth locally, regionally, and globally, and will provide an opportunity for educators and youth to share successful classroom project examples and develop new collaborative project ideas. In addition to educator and youth led workshops, the event also features cultural excursions, culture nights, and keynotes by leaders working in the fields of global education and virtual exchange. Take a look at the conference site

iEARN is represented in Brazil by the NGO Educadores Globais  which has been promoting public schools participation since 2007. All iEARN projects are created and proposed by the participating schools. There are currently three projects from Brazilian schools in this platform: Hands For Peace, created by teacher Almerinda Garibaldi, the president of iEARN Brasil; Hip Hop on The Spot, created by teacher Rose Rocha, arts teacher and rapper and International Youth Press, created and implemented in all municipal schools from São Paulo by teacher Carlos Lima. You can check these and many other projects and join them in the site
