This unique workshop is a breath of fresh air! It will be held at the Little Creek Nature Area, a 97-acre outdoor educational facility owned and operated by the Ferguson-Florissant School District. Since 1974, teachers have provided ecology, environmental science, field biology and living history programs for district students.

On June 9, EdPlus workshop participants will explore STEAM resources connected to technology standards, digital and media literacy. Using nature, art and technology tools, we will examine how experiential learning can be replicated in your classroom today. Geocaching, nature walks and animal viewing will be some of the activities you experience. We’ll encourage you to take nature photos to share on Instagram & tweet about what you are learning throughout the day to your PLN. During the workshop we’ll share how to think critically about media presentations, learn how to make simple videos, appreciate Missouri ecology and network with other educators and more.

This workshop will be held both indoors and outside, so dress appropriately for the weather. Bring a charged device and be ready to walk away refreshed and energized to bring new ideas back to you school! Learn more and register here.
