Through Professional Development

iEARN offers both face-to-face and online professional development workshops for educators seeking to enhance

their work with young people through the integration of Internet-based project work. iEARN facilitators work closely with

participating schools and teachers to design trainings that meet their particular needs and interests. After going through

an iEARN workshop, participants return to their schools with a built-in support network -- on-going technical and staff

development assistance from iEARN staff, as well as an online community of colleagues worldwide. See p 20-21, and

for additional information, http://www.iearn.org/professional/.
