Are you looking for new resources to engage 21st century learners? Do you use PA Core academic standards in Environment & Ecology, and in Science, Technology, & Engineering? Participants will explore new technological tools to support student learning about watersheds, stream health, and water quality. Resources featured in this workshop include the WikiWatershed.org toolkit and the web-based Model My Watershed GIS.
Participants are encouraged to bring their laptops and mobile devices. Laptops will also be provided. There is a related workshop, Water Quality Mobile App: 21st Century Tools, in the afternoon.
