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:

How we produce and consume food is the single biggest threat to nature today. It’s a major driver of the emergence of infectious diseases, unhealthy diets are the biggest cause of non-communicable diseases and 1.9 billion people are obese or overweight. In schools we need to raise food awareness to stay healthy, reduce food waste and save the environment for a better future. The project aligns with UN Sustainable Development Goal No: 2 (Zero Hunger), Goal No: 3 (Good heath and well-being), SDG 4 (Quality Education), and addresses local and global communities of students, teachers and parents to promote healthy eating habits, raise food waste awareness and ensure SEL through service-learning. Partner schools plan concrete, cross-curricular activities that reflect school cultures and meet the needs of sustainable development of school communities. The project promotes inquiry-based learning and student-initiated action.
