* It is time to register your students for the iEARN Student MY HERO Learning Circle forum so they will have the opportunity for them to communicate directly with students from other schools in our Learning Circle.

A great way to share what our group is doing is through images. Creating a wall with a map, information about the countries in our Learning Circle and photos is a great way for our classes to learn about each other's cultures. There now is a folder for you to share your pictures with the rest of the group. Here is the link:  https://forums.iearn.org/categories/Photos-for-Sharing-

Another great way to learn about each others classes and country's culture is through videos. There now is a folder for you to share your videos with the rest of the group. Here is the link:  https://forums.iearn.org/categories/Videos-to-share
* It is time to start posting your class surveys in the iEARN forum.There are many different ways to send your Class Survey.  The purpose of this task is for your students to share some information about themselves, their school, and their community.  Please remember that the survey is all about your students.  Please allow them to fill it out – it is not about what teachers think – it’s about your students.  You can send your information in any cross platform presentation that you wish.

Please remember, that this template is a starting point for your students to share cultural information.  You are free to add to it and be as creative as you wish.  In the past, some schools have added additional information, included photographs, created PowerPoints, produced movies, and even recorded podcasts!  The limit is your time and creativity.

Our goal this week is to continue to exchange cultural information, learn about each other, and share our daily lives.  You can also begin to talk about your project ideas.

The Class Survey template can be found in the News section of your Learning Circle group in the iEARN Collaboration Centre.

There are already a number of surveys from our Learning Circle that have been posted. Please share these with your students and don't forget to comment on the surveys posted. This is a great way to get to start our dialogue and collaboration. 

* Please place your Teacher Introduction message in the iEARN Teacher Forum for this project.  In this message, tell us about yourself and your teaching situation. You can also share your goals and ideas for this project. Please respond to the other teachers' posts. This is the time for the teachers to get to know each other better.
