iEARN-Japan

JEARN Delegation at the 2010 iEARN Conference in Canada

iEARN-Japan (JEARN) started in 1998 in collaboration with Teleclass International Japan. In 2001, JEARN (Japan Education and Resource Network ) was founded as the Center of iEARN-Japan and in 2003 was legally recognized by the Japanese government as a Non-Profit Organization (NPO). It hosted the 10th iEARN Conference and the 7th Youth Summit at Awaji Yumebutai International Conference Hall in July 2003. It also hosted the first Natural Disaster Youth Summit (NDYS) in Hyogo at the same place in 2005. The Teddy Bear Project is well known in Japan and serves as an introductory project for "Integrated Study Period" at schools.  Others like NDYS, NEGAI Connection, Origami are also very visible inside Japan and iEARN. JEARN is run by volunteer members, financed by JEARN yearly membership fees.  Our goal is "All Japanese children write and talk on iEARN Collaboration Center and communicate with iEARN friends throughout the world from their classrooms."
