Professional Development Opportunities

iEARN-Pakistan continually facilitates teachers training and development programs round the year. The teachers' training and support takes place in different forms:

1- Workshops and Courses:

These are mostly day long or week long workshops and courses focusing cross curricular topics and respond to the express needs of schools for integrating ICT in classroom teaching. These courses are open to educators from iEARN partner schools.

Over the years more then 2000 teachers have participated in these programs and have developed into professionals who are capable of integrating online project based  online telecommunications activities in their own curriculum and are able to support and assist schools, teachers and students  in their community for participating in online curriculum based projects.

Often times some of these workshops or the registrations are sponsored;  Government schools, NGO, Community schools and schools functioning in underprivileged areas qualify for all such sponsored training programs.
