This episode focuses on mobile inquiry and place-based learning, how putting technology in the hands of students changes the conversations we have in the classroom.
A favorite quote in researching this episode comes from Place-Based Education: Connecting Classrooms and Communities. Laurie Lane-Zucker writes in the foreward:
A significant transformation of education might begin with the effort to learn how events and processes close to home relate to regional, national, and global forces and events, leading to a new understanding of ecological stewardship and community.
