iEARN (International Education and Resources Network) is the largest non-profit global network that enables teachers and youth to use the Internet and technologies to collaborate on projects that enhance learning and make a difference in the world.
iEARN is working in more than 150 countries all over the world , connecting more than 2,000,000 students , teachers and Alumnus from all over the world.
Since 1999, iEARN (www.iearnegypt.org ) has been working in Egypt with its partners (www.iearnegypt.org/partners ) in more than 100 schools, in different governorates which are involved in a variety of iEARN projects on environment, civics education, global issues and human rights. All schools are conducting their projects with selected English Language teachers and interested students as extra curricula activities.
What makes iEARN Egypt special is that our youth are the most active youth!
Their input cannot be only summed up in working on different projects but also iEARN Egypt's youth have always been a resource that helped in iEARN Egypt development. They work globally and internationally to empower other youth to become critical learners and thinkers, they establish friendly relations based on equality and mutual respect. They simply "Connect Youth to Make a Difference".
The emphasis is on upgrading student computer/internet skills, English language ability and exposure to real-life, authentic texts and themes. Projects focused on learner-centered teaching, cooperative and interactive learning and development of life skills - critical thinking, problem solving, conflict resolution and teambuilding.
We hold school visits, events and activities that would help us achieve our vision.
Since the main goal of iEARN in general is to connect and reduce the gap between youth around the world; and since iEARN Egypt seeks the same end. The first thing that came to our minds when we were thinking of the slogan was “Connect” inviting every youth out there to connect with others and share their thoughts, beliefs, cultures, perspectives and ideas and that is how “Share” came in the slogan. Once youth shared their thoughts, they also gained access to others’ in the process. That brought to them new perspectives, ideas, knowledge. And they also worked in projects solving problems and working in team learning new things about life, and that’s where “Learn” came from creating our beloved slogan in its final form containing our goals and vision “iEARN Egypt: Connect, Share & Learn”
iEARN Egypt is working under the umbrella of E-era(Egyptian Association for Educational Resources)( http://egypt-era.org/). E-era is a non-governmental and non-profit organization founded in 2005 under the Ministry of Social Solidarity #6149.
