Reach Out To Asia (ROTA) recently hosted a two-day workshop as part of the 2015 fall program of the International Education And Resource Network (iEARN).
The workshops were hosted by the National Center for Educational Development (NCED) at Qatar University and were sponsored by Qatar Chemical and Petrochemical Marketing and Distribution Company (Muntajat).
The iEARN program builds on the basic principle of Project Based Learning (PBL) and empowers teachers and youth to collaborate online in order to connect classroom learning with real world issues. It allows young students to acquire skills in critical thinking, and cross-cultural awareness while connecting their learning to real world issues, making learning both challenging and enjoyable.
During the two-day workshop in Qatar, a new group of 39 teachers from 17 different independent and private schools had the opportunity to join the worldwide community and learn about the basics of PBL, acquiring the know-how on how to implement iEARN projects, while cooperating online with teachers and students from more than 140 countries around the world.
