I teach in Trenton, NJ. This is my second year using iEARN. It has changed the way I teach. My subject is technology and this year I have incorporated iEARN into my entire middle school curriculum. The middle schoolers have been working on "Finding Solutions to Hunger". We are in contact with over a dozen countries who are also working on this project. This affords us opportunity to study other cultures in a way that makes it REAL. We have friends in Latvia, and British Columbia, and Qatar, and UAE, and Philadelphia, PA.....we communicate with them and care about them. The younger students are working on a Teddy Bear exchange with Teacher David (as we call him in class) in Kenya, just today we made holiday greetings which we are going to electronically send to Russia to our 3rd grade friends there. iEARNs has become contagious in my school and we are all working together on cross-curricular ways to incorporate real people into our learning.
