Want to give your students a real-world, world-class education? Connect them to real classes worldwide! The Chris Stevens Youth Network is an excellent place to start. This initiative is administered by iEARN and funded by the Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs at the U.S. State Department to engage students and educators in the Middle East, North Africa and the U.S. in meaningful, curriculum-based project-based learning. We’re excited to launch this new Chris Stevens Youth Network site in time for World Teachers’s Day, October 5.
As part of the Chris Stevens Youth Network, iEARN-Jordan will be conducting a workshop on collaboration and online collaborative projects on October 5th at the American Language Center in Amman. Teachers get a chance to meet virtually their colleagues around the world who are also participating in the program, and explore ideas for collaborative global projects to engage their students in. Also this October 5th, iEARN-Tunisia will celebrate its 2nd anniversary and World Teachers’ Day. Students will read out poems that celebrate their teachers, sing songs and share this celebration with their peers in the USA via Skype. See more on the TEARN World Teachers’ Day page on the UNESCO website.
Have a happy World Teachers’ Day and don’t miss your chance to participate in hundreds of Connected Educators Month events this October, as well as the Global Education Conference and International Education Week this November.
