Now accepting submissions for the 2011-2012 iEARN Project Book

June, 30 2011

If you've already made contacts in iEARN, have contributed regularly on the forums, and are comfortable with how projects work, you may be interested in developing your own project!  Start planning now, since we're accepting submissions until August 1st for the 2011-2012 iEARN Project Book, to be published in September.

In order to ensure that there will be activity in all projects that are published in the iEARN Project Book, we require that any new iEARN projects first recruit a group of classes (either in your region or globally) to participate before the project is launched. In addition, we ask all project facilitators to proactively engage youth in the design and facilitation of projects.

To find partners for your project, please share your project idea in the Teachers Forum or, for students, the Youth Forum.  See the iEARN Project Facilitation Guidelines for more about how to facilitate a successful project in iEARN.

Once you have found partners, fill out the template below and return it to projects [at] iearn [dot] org.
