• 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
