#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.

We at Oroville High School became involved with iEARN two years ago and with their guidance and assistance have been able to implement and grow our international education component in our school. Before iEARN it was "Where is _______ (Name our country)," and the response would be "Huh?" Now the response is immediate and excited, "What are we doing with them and can I get involved?" To say the attitude has been transformed is a grand understatement. iEARN has been helpful to an extreme, involved and professional in our dealings. They have come to understand our needs and situation and have opened doors and opportunities that match our school. We can't say enough. Thank you. Two photos included: One our our students making paper in a project to learn about entrepreneurship with schools in Turkey (YIEP), and the second learning about comparable interactions with forests and the environment with the Dominican Republic (Tres Bosques, un Mundo). Both amazing programs run by iEARN that Oroville has participated.
