Sign up now for the Jan-May 2013 Session of iEARN Learning Circles!

January, 6 2013

Looking for a new project collaboration opportunity in iEARN?  Sign up for the upcoming session of Learning Circles - running from January 30th - May 25th.  Learning Circles are highly interactive, project-based partnerships among a small number of schools located throughout the world. There are two sessions each year, September - January and January - May.

Registration is now open (through January 22) for the next session of iEARN Learning Circles, which will run from January 30 - May 25, 2013.

Over 15 weeks, you'll have a chance to work with a small number of classrooms from around the world on a Learning Circle theme of your choice.

The structure of a Learning Circle comes from its design of phases. The first phase, "Getting Ready" at the start of the course, prepares you for participation in the project. In the following phases you get to know other circle members and progress to working together under your selected theme, but with your own curriculum. Your circle closes with each classroom presenting a final product that demonstrates the quality of learning that has taken place.

In addition to hands on support throughout the session, educators have access to a comprehensive Learning Circles Teachers Guide

To participate in an iEARN Learning Circle, educators must first register in iEARN, and then fill out a Learning Circles Placement form.  Direct registration form link (must be logged in to access): http://collaborate.iearn.org/space-11/join
