2. REGISTER NOW FOR THE NEXT SESSION OF iEARN LEARNING CIRCLES.  Learning Circles are highly interactive, project-based partnerships among a small number of schools located throughout the world.  Two sessions take place each year -- September 30, 2008 - January 12, 2009, and January 30, 2009 - May 18, 2009.  Learning Circle Placement forms are due September 15, 2008 for the September-January session.  To learn more about Learning Circles and to link to a placement form, visit  Register by January 15th to be placed in a Circle.

3. JOIN THE "OUR FOOTPRINTS, OUR FUTURE" CARBON FOOTPRINT LEARNING CIRCLE PROJECT.  Classrooms worldwide are invited to participate in a new series of Carbon Footprint Learning Circles. Each circle will essentially be a country without borders, working together to reduce their carbon footprint.   The project will use Elluminate web conferencing tools to enable circles to "meet" once a month in order to set goals, discuss progress, etc. In addition, we are having a networking tool set up for the project to allow each circle to also communicate asynchronously.  Each month, classes will use a different medium (prose, art, photography, video, etc) in order to communicate their activities to their learning circle.  On Earth Day in April, we will then bring all of the different learning circles together via a 24 hour web and or video conference, passing the torch through the various time zones as each participant can celebrate their successes.  If you have any ideas and/or you would like to participate in the project, please contact Jim  Этот адрес e-mail защищен от спам-ботов.
