There are several recourses that will help you find out which project are currently taking place on IEARN  and how to get started in project work. Up-to-date description of projects can also be found on the website:

  • We encourage all IEARN teachers and students to participate in existing projects before initiating a project of their own.

  • Identify a project of interest and find out if the project is still active.

  • Go to the project's online forum and/or write to the facilitator of the project.

  • Read and respond to recent postings/topics on the forum. Remember, all students want and need responses to their messages. We recommend that your students post at least two responses for every new message they post.

  • A good place to start if you are new to online project collaboration is Learning Circles.

Learning Circles are highly interactive, project-based partnerships among a small number of schools located throughout the world. Each session is 14 weeks. Participants who wish to join these structured circles must fill out a registration form at least two weeks prior to the start of the circle sessions in order to be placed in a group.
