Students are fascinated by the details of insects they just collected in their own schoolyard as they view them through dissecting microscopes. This film documents the ease of getting students outdoors, the use of simple technology to take learning to a deeper level, and the impact of hands-on personal experiences in the students’ own schoolyards. The science teachers, principal, and nature consultant offer their perspectives on using technology for nature-based science lessons to increase student engagement and learning.

Teachers are working with a nature coordinator to implement hands-on, nature-based science curriculum using the nature in their very own school yard. This program is funded by Calfire and sponsored by San Diego Children and Nature and San Diego Science Alliance and will provide teachers with the tools to continue this method of nature- based teaching well beyond the grant funding. Our objective is to promote the use of these lessons by teachers throughout the district and to show that these lessons are easy to use, engaging, hands-on and experiential. We also want to demonstrate that any schoolyard can be used for these lessons.

EDI provides innovative volunteer outreach programs that are integrated with biologically sound habitat restoration programs, creating unique models of both. These efforts support the conservation efforts of multiple land management agencies as well as the San Diego County Multiple Species Conservation Program. As a result, the community enjoys healthy habitat and stewards who understand, value, participate in and advocate for environmental conservation. This film will articulate this mission and show a diverse range of participants and activities that bring the mission to life.<br /> <br /> Funding provided by the Earth Discovery Institute<br /> Produced, filmed and edited by Jim Karnik Films High Tech Elementary Family Days - San Dieguito River Park tag:childrenandnature.ning.com,2014-06-03:2961135:Video:158350 2014-06-03T18:43:47.618Z Jim Karnik http://childrenandnature.ning.com/profile/JimKarnik <a href="http://childrenandnature.ning.com/video/high-tech-elementary-family-days-san-dieguito-river-park"><br /> <img src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2511812007?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=135" width="240" height="135" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a> <a href="http://childrenandnature.ning.com/video/high-tech-elementary-family-days-san-dieguito-river-park"><br /> <img src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2511812007?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=135" width="240" height="135" alt="Thumbnail" /><br /> </a> Exploring Our Urban Forest - Whitman Elementary School tag:childrenandnature.ning.com,2014-02-04:2961135:Video:154768 2014-02-04T19:21:39.666Z Jim Karnik http://childrenandnature.ning.com/profile/JimKarnik <a href="http://childrenandnature.ning.com/video/exploring-our-urban-forest-whitman-elementary-school"><br /> <img alt="Thumbnail" height="135" src="http://storage.ning.com/topology/rest/1.0/file/get/2511811041?profile=original&amp;width=240&amp;height=135" width="240"></img><br /> </a> <br></br>This film showcases Exploring our Urban Forest—A nature/school yard based curriculum at Whitman Elementary School in the San Diego Unified School District (SDUSD).
