Getting Outside: Helping Our Students to Be Naturalists with Technology

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Feedback form is now closed.
In this session we will look at why it is important to get our students outside and learning more often. We will then look at some resources, ideas, and tips to get them outside and learning in all subject areas and for all grade levels. Included in all of this will be ideas of how we can use technology such as Chromebooks and cell phones to supplement our students learning while they are outside. This session will be taught from the perspective of a teacher who has taught for several years and has experience teaching in the outdoors. This will be an interactive, hands-on virtual session that will be conducted outside, weather permitting (if you are able to be outside). Access to a mobile device with the ability to download apps would be beneficial. We will be using strategies that can be used in most backyards, schoolyards, around the house, and other common locations. We will then workshop other resources, ideas, and tips from the participants in the session and the programs they represent so that we can all learn from each other.
