JEARN International Education Meeting 2007 in Tokyo 
-"Global Initiative for Future in Collaborative Learning"-

August 24 (Fri.) - August 25 (Sat.) , 2007
(iEARN Coordinators/Representatives/Contact Persons will also have a meeting on August 23 (Thu.) )

NPO Japan Education and Resource Network ( JEARN, http://www.jearn.jp/english/ ) is the iEARN-Japan Center, which is affiliated with iEARN (International Education and Resource Network, http://www.iearn.org/ ), the largest, non-profit, global educational network of over one million elementary and high school students engaged in collaborative learning projects that make a difference in the world.

JEARN announces the second gathering "JEARN International Education Meeting 2007" which will be held in Tokyo Japan. We are inviting iEARN country-coordinators, representatives, and contact persons from over ten countries/areas, especially from Asia and Pacific rim. They will meet about 100 Japanese teachers at the conference.

At the JEARN International Education Meeting 2007, we will share our diversity and develop a common vision of the direction that iEARN community should take, and build good relationships among teachers. When teachers understand each other and build mutual trust, they can promote collaborative learning to their students better, and build friendship stronger enough to face any troubles while working virtually on projects together online.

There will be an opportunity to gain knowledge and practical skills useful when teachers participate in iEARN projects collaborating and interacting with each other, to include project discussions on special themes and how to make video-conference via the Internet.

The first night meeting for iEARN delegates is the time for sharing and discussion on promoting iEARN, office running, and other issues which each delegate faces when they run iEARN.

General Information
