December, 16 2013

Looking for a way to connect your students with global peers? Sign up by January 15th for the upcoming session of iEARN Learning Circles, which will run from January 30 - May 25.

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 22nd) for the next session of iEARN Learning Circles, which will run from January 30, 2014 - May 25, 2014 (15 weeks with a 1-week break in April). Learning Circle Placement forms are due January 15, 2014

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 be registered as a member of iEARN, and then fill out a Learning Circles Placement form. For more information about iEARN Learning Circles, visit www.iearn.org/circles
