Remote Environmental Education Resources: Who, What, Where, When, How, and Why?




Wednesday, August 12, 2020

4:00pm - 5:30pm EST, virtual event

Eli Caref will showcase some of her favorite Environmental Education resources that you and your students can use remotely, whether on the computer or as a phone/tablet app. Some are old favorites and some are new gems that have popped up in the wake of the pandemic. This will be a live session with screen sharing so she can take you through some of the technology, apps, websites, and videos. There will be time for you to explore some of these resources yourself and with other participants.

This session will be appropriate for teachers of all ages from anywhere in the US.

Sarah Lawrence College is an Approved CTLE Sponsor and offers 1.5 CTLE hours for this program.
