Dear Diane,

Over the years Technical Education has been relegated from the files of policy makers in Africa as a whole.Why?

Hi Diane

I thought I would share with you a global student project taking place right now as I thought you would be interested.

The #world11kids project is part of the UN's ITUWorld Conference taking place in Geneva, Switzerland in a few weeks time.

We are inviting 10,000 kids from around the world to design solutions to the toughest of world problems and put challenges to the world leaders who will gather at the conference.

We are looking for schools to get involved and thought you might be able to help.

You can find out more here

best wishes

Tom Barrett

I had an email from Richard Boyum that he had read the article and wanted a website link to Kids Can Make a Difference. It was nice to hear from him!
Deb finally contacted me and I am going to do a one day workshop on Cross-Cultural Collaboration in January. I will be sharing many resources, including iEARN.
I shared the project books with a teacher friend at Dearborn Schools and a service-learning coordinator in Lowell. I'll be meeting with both of them later this month, and I'll talk with them more about getting their teachers involved.

Hello Diane,
It's incredible how I came to this network of educators. I simply wrote Global Educators ( Educadores Globais - the name we chose to our NGO in Brazil) in Google and there they are. Then, I met you and Ed here. It's awsome to be about funding our group down here.

We will definitely make plans. I appreciated being a part of the IEARN global energy. Where can we see the 3oth anniversary video?

Hello Diane and thank you for your comment. I will contact the folks who spoke up about iEarn at our Global Ed Collaborative Meeting on Friday evening and will ask them to clarify their points for this community.
