iEARN Pakistan "Connecting youth making a difference"

The iEARN BRIDGE Program

The BRIDGE Program is a collaborative effort among iEARN programs in 17 countries. This program is focused to integrate educators from Algeria, Bangladesh, Egypt, India, Iraq, Jordan, Lebanon, Morocco, Nepal, Pakistan, Indonesia, Malaysia, Tunisia, United Arab Emirates, West Bank/Gaza, Yemen, and the United States into IEARN projects and provide practical, online classroom materials to promote partnerships between secondary schools among the participating countries.  The iEARN BRIDGE program (Building Respect Through Internet Dialogue and Global Education) aims to show that the integration of collaborative online projects and Internet communication in the classroom, can prove to be invaluable in promoting cross-cultural understanding and conflict resolution.

During the year 2005-2006 iEARN-Pakistan will work to support 40 new schools and at least 120 educators to integrate iEARN Online Projects and collaborate with schools from other BRIDGE countries.

iEARN-Pakistan has supported hundreds of schools and thousands of students for participation in the BRIDGE Program since 2002. The participating schools and students from Pakistan and other participating countries have since then produced publications, community-outreach projects, web sites, CD-ROMs,  research videos and have traveled to  USA on student exchange. Several teachers received the unique opportunity to participate in the regional conferences in Egypt and Jordan. .

BRIDGE has been administered by iEARN Pakistan since 2002, in   collaboration with the iEARN-US and United States Department of State, Bureau of Educational and Cultural Affairs, and  all the participating BRIDGE   countries.
