Each iEARN (International Education and Resource Network) Annual Conference and Youth Summit is a unique opportunity for educators, students, administrators, Ministry officials, non-profit, and corporate partners, to meet and discuss how they are using technology to build global understanding and enhance teaching and learning.  The Annual iEARN Conference and Youth Summit showcases educational technology activities, school partnerships, new Internet-based professional development tools, innovative curricula, and the collaborative efforts of youth and educators participating in the network.  In addition to educator and youth led workshops, the six-day event also features cultural excursions, cultural nights, and presentations by Ministries of Education, businesses, and educational organizations eager to form partnerships with iEARN schools.

We encourage all who want to make their education programs more global, and who believe that students can make a difference in the world when they work together on collaborative online projects, to join this global gathering.  2011 marks iEARN's 23rd anniversary as an international network, and iEARN-Taiwan's 10th anniversary as a national organization.  

Previous iEARN Conferences were held in Argentina (1994), Australia (1995), Hungary(1996), Spain (1997), USA (1998), Puerto Rico (1999), China (2000), South Africa (2001), Russia (2002), Japan (2003), Slovakia (2004), Senegal (2005), the Netherlands (2006), Egypt (2007), Morocco (2008), and Canada (2010).
