Project Description:

Learning Circles are highly interactive, project-based partnerships among a small number of schools located throughout the world. There is a topic of interest for everyone on all grade levels. You can sponsor your own project idea or just participate in someone else’s project. Since you will be guided by facilitators along each step of the process, Learning Circles is an excellent choice for beginners as well as experienced iEARN teachers.

We are offering a 5 week-long project called Hello World: Learning Circles for Elementary, Middle, and High School teachers and students who have never participated in an online project, iEARN, or a Learning Circle. There is also a 5-week beginning project for My Hero called My Hero: First Steps.

To join iEARN Learning Circles, you must complete a placement form at least two weeks before the beginning of the session. Once you complete the placement form you will be placed in a Circle for the next session.

Project Description:

Power of the music! This project explores the harmonies from Taisho Koto, a traditional Japanese instrument, to open the way to the future.
As we collaborate with ‘Natural Disaster Youth Summit (NDYS), we welcome not only Taisho Koto, but also any other musical instruments.

‘Taisho koto’, musical instrument was invented in Japan. It has more than 100 years history since its release. This instrument was designed to be easily played so that people who are not experienced with playing musical instruments could learn. This project began so that many people around the world could learn and enjoy music.
More than Ten years have passed since we started Taisho Koto Project in 2009 in Canada. We have actively participated in the iEARN conferences for example, Taiwan and Argentina. And the Culture Night, too. Our project held the “Kotolympic 2016 in Niigata” in July 2016 and “Kotolympic 2018 in Niigata” in July 2018. Many iEARN teachers and students came to enjoy the events.
In 2024, we will host musical events by using Zoom in July or August.
