#iEARN is the best kept secret that should be shared with every educator that wants their students to become globally aware and involved. Educators and students are provided with a safe , but engaging platform to share and develop project based learning projects or other projects that simply facilitate global and cultural excitement among students and their teachers in a way not offered in the general curriculum! I cannot express how much the content of this group has enhanced the learning of my students and provided me with an international cadre to build friendship and professional foundations with.

I recently worked with this terrific organization as a trainer for two workshops teaching digital storytelling skills to international students, and I would be more than thrilled to work with iEarn again. I truly believe that iEarn has made it possible for these students to learn skills that will change their lives and enable them to share what they have learned with the world. All the iEarn personnel were immensely professional and deeply caring people who I am proud and grateful to have had the privilege to work with.

For more than a decade I have partnered with iEarn-USA on a number of international collaborations: launching Adobe Youth Voices, producing short documentaries, and most recently co-producing a series of digital storytelling workshops. While some of the faces change over the years, the energy and focus of their work has never wavered. iEarn has somehow established an internal culture of good spirit and collaboration that is so easy to see in the hundreds of students, teachers and partners I've met over the years. I am an admiring outsider who is very proud to have the chance to collaborate with such fantastic, hard-working people.
