Tsunami Relief

The Friendship Through Education initiative, launched by the U.S. Department of Education in response to the events surrounding September 11, 2001, continues to work to build strong and lasting relationships between American children and those from other countries and cultures. Consortium members of the Friendship Through Education initiative listed below are very active in those same countries where the devastating effects of the recent tsunami have been the most severe. These organizations are challenging schools and educators in the United States to respond to this unprecedented humanitarian crisis. Your help and responsiveness would be most welcome.

EVENTS!

International Education Week 2006. FTE partner organizations, Global SchoolNet and iEARN-USA, participated in a panel discussion and the US Department of Education in Washington, DC. The panel focused on the role of technology in international education. The panel presentation, which was introduced by Tim Magner, Director, Office of Educational Technology for the US Department of Education, discussed how technology-based collaborative projects can enhance both learning and the development of global awareness in American young people. As part of the panel, students and teachers from Lebanon, California, New Zealand and Ghana were brought in via video-conferencing and other connective technologies.
