WHAT IS A DISTANCE LEARNING ADVENTURE?

Distance learning adventures and live, electronic field trips (EFTs) bring the excitement of learning right to you, your classroom, or your non-formal learning event.  Teachers don’t need to load up buses, worry about the weather, or collect money. The experts, topic, and location are brought to you electronically via the Internet.

Great Outdoors LIVE: Yours to Explore brings the information and resources right to your classroom, nature center, visitor’s center, house, or wherever you are.  Just like an in-person field trip, students can ask questions of the experts or post comments on Facebook and Twitter during the webcast.  For teachers, the program and resources on the web site will enable you to meet science education standards.
