HOW DOES IT WORK?
It only works when educators like you join! Best of all, it's free!
Is your class from a public school, private school, homeschool, home-hospital care, or daycare? Join today! Everyone is welcome! The goal of the network is to promote inclusion in environmental education!
Joining the network is free and easy! Simply click join us and enter your classroom information into the network of available exploration locations.
Once you've joined, you will be able to view classrooms from all over the world and chose who you'd like to partner with. Classrooms can be sorted utilizing the search bar in the forum by keywords such as specific locations, ecosystems, cultures, or communities to help educators find the perfect match. Select a classroom and request to partner with them. The rest is entirely up to the partnering educators to customize.
Would you like to do a live Zoom or Google Meets with your partnering class? Go right ahead and schedule that together. Maybe your class would like to prerecord a video and simply share the file instead (a great way to include video/audio/photo storytelling and YouTube creations). It's completely up to you! Find the time and means that work best for your classrooms!
Each classroom of students will also have the opportunity to decide what it is that they'd like to share with their new partner classroom. Use this opportunity to explore your local environment in detail and share artifacts, items, and samples that showcase your ecosystems, community, and culture. What story will your class tell?
