Balancing Green Time and Screen Time

Using Technology to Connect Students and The Environment is an incredible resource for teachers and especially science teachers that are attempting to integrate the physical connection and digital connection that our students need for growing into the solutionists that our world needs. Being globally connected is essential, and this requires our students to learn digitally. It means having a digital footprint and serving as stewards in the cyberspace they fill. These are the identical outcomes that we need when we attempt to connected our students physically to the local space that they reside. We want students to create a soft footprint in their neighborhood as well as be seen as assets and stewards to the community. The delicate balance that no one can ignore is how do we build the right amount of green time and screen time into the lives of our kids.
