EE Week 2013 Theme: Taking Technology Outdoors

Classroom Earth has announced that the theme of National Environmental Education Week 2013 (April 14-20) will be Greening STEM: Taking Technology Outdoors and will explore how technology can enhance environmental learning both inside and outside the classroom.

As part of Taking Technology Outdoors, EE Week will highlight the growing opportunity to engage today's students in learning about the environment with new technologies that enable scientific research and develop 21st century skills, including creativity, innovation, communication and collaboration.

We know educators at North Carolina environmental education centers and classroom teachers are integrating technology with environmental education in innovative ways. We hope to hear your stories and share your examples.

Educators who register for EE Week will be able to take advantage of:

• Free educator webinars and toolkits offering tips, resources and ideas for using the latest technology to excite students about learning in their community
• Case studies, success stories and examples of technology in action and the teachers who are using it to enhance environmental learning and achievement in core subject areas
• Discounts, giveaways and special offers from EE Week partners, including: a 10 percent discount from Nature-Watch on any online order, a $10 coupon on purchases of $50 or more from the Acorn Naturalists online store, and a 25 percent discount on the Sustainability Specialist Certificate in K-12 Sustainability Education Strategies from the Green Education Foundation.

Schools and other educational agencies and organizations can register to participate in EE Week at their website to take advantage of these and other resources on their website.

Classroom Earth is a program of the National Environmental Education Foundation made possible by the Weather Channel.
