Take Your Kids Outside

Want to transform learning? Take kids outside. A lot. So many of my favorite moments in learning came when I was outside exploring, getting dirty, and breathing in the learning. As important as I think that high levels of technology integration is for the future of our students, the blind spot of education system is not using the natural beauty that is a strength of our nation. Places like the Urban Ecology Center in Milwaukee, The Great Smokey Mountain Institute at Tremont, and the Dauphin Island Sea Lab are but three of hundreds of partners that want to work with you as an educator. Watch this video below, then tell yourself that you are doing enough in this area for your kids. It is essential for building the future stewards of our planet.
