    … through iEARN, my students collaborated with students from Orman School in Cairo, Egypt, in a media literacy unit …. As US troops closed in on Baghdad, students from both countries shared articles, photos and news clips from their respective regions. They found a much wider spectrum of viewpoints and coverage than they had anticipated. Being pushed to verify facts as reported by news sources, students on both sides of the ocean experienced first hand the need for critical thinking and active inquiry. One and all changed from strictly passive consumers of media to more active, discerning students of electronic and print information. -- Sarah, high school teacher, Spokane, Washington
