Beyond the Four Walls: Outdoor Learning for All

Log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

We spend more than seven hours on screens and only minutes outdoors daily. This hybrid outdoor and classroom-based deep dive will take participants into the world to experience the benefits of being outdoors. We'll spend a couple hours away from screens at an accessible nearby park along the water to design ideas for outdoor learning in your communities, and then come back to the classroom to consider how to plant seeds of change back home.

Participants will blend elements of ecosystem mapping, liberatory design and nature-based principles to explore the already existing assets in your school community, and see what can emerge when we think differently about how to approach learning.
This deep dive is for Tk-12 educators looking to find ways to bring classroom lessons outdoors to nearby nature, and school leaders seeking to cultivate systemic change to create the conditions for equitable outdoor access for all students.
