Embrace technology as a way to get you outside learning, playing and exploring!
Do you remember running and playing outdoors as a kid? Going on adventures and learning new things? Although the times have changed and life is a little bit different now, you can still spend time outdoors breathing in the fresh air and connecting with nature, you may just do it with a little bit of help from technology.
It’s so important to our overall health and well-being to spend time outdoors connecting to nature and it’s also not always easy leaving technology behind. You can embrace both - learn how to enjoy time outdoors and use technology to help you learn, explore, investigate, analyze and problem solve.
We can show you how!
Using technology to engage students in the Climate
We’re already seeing the impacts of climate change in
our local communities and on a global scale, but did you know that a study
published in 2019 found that only limited class time is spent on climate change
content? Two in three teachers report they shy away from teaching climate
change in their classroom because they don't have access to resources or feel
they have the knowledge or skills to teach it.
Join the conversation
with technology and outdoor education
a long history of providing high-quality, hands-on learning opportunities in
the outdoors that connect people with nature and inspire action for the
environment, we pivoted to offer programs and services within the constraints
of COVID-19. To accommodate school closures, remote learning, gathering limits,
new safety protocols, we used new technologies and software platforms,
developed digital resources, and established an online support community.
