WeExplore & North of Sixty presented at NAAEE in Ottawa

NAAEE
LTML staff member and PhD candidate Jeni Henrickson presented on WeExplore and the North of Sixty project at the North American Association for Environmental Education (NAAEE) in Ottawa, Canada, last week. NAAEE is the largest and longest-running conference worldwide dedicated to environmental education. Environmental educators are looking more and more at ways technology can be integrated into outdoor and sustainability programming in ways that enhance engagement with and learning about the natural world. It was one of the “hot topics” at the conference this year, which included a national panel focused exclusively on technology and environmental education. The two LTML presentations were centered on just this topic: “North of Sixty: Mobilizing Student-Captured Stories of a Changing Arctic” and “WeExplore: Promoting Environmental Action through Technology-Enhanced Student Adventure Learning.”
