Happy New Year and welcome to Spring 2018. During this semester our students, curators, and collaborators will share outdoors activities with emphasis on specific learning topics. The topics are related to higher education courses also being taught this term.
Our first topic is the Environment. The focus is sustainability, climate, food, lands, reducing human impact, etc. Other topics will be open based on current interest and news.
We start our Spring 2018 with an outdoors Visit to the Center of Environmental Studies of Comunitat Valenciana in Spain.
Solar and wind exhibits outside main building of Center of Environmental Studies of Valencian Community. The center has a sample of energy sources used in Spain.
More photos of their farm and garden coming soon. Visit their website

The sun will shine again. @vamospedalenado is an example and an inspiration to many people who follow his adventures. His photos, chronicles, and outdoors wisdom will continue.

When natural disaster struck be it in Mexico, Sri Lanka, Haiti, Ecuador, or the Philippines and humanitarian response was needed, #Scouts were among the #VolunteersActFirst to help the community.
Scouts from BSA Troop 182 in Jacksonville, Florida collected donations for Hurricane Maria’s victims in Puerto Rico. Scouts in Puerto Rico also helped in disaster relief after hurricane destroyed the island.

Problem-based learning (PBL) is integrated at Two Rivers Public Charter School in Washington, DC, at every grade level—pre-K through eighth grade. Students are presented with a real-world problem, undertake a series of investigations, and create a product that they present to an authentic audience as part of the Expeditionary Learning (EL) Education framework.
PBL enables the school to reach all learners. “There are multiple entry points,” explains Julia Tomasko, a fourth-grade teacher. “It’s easy to scaffold [PBL] for students who need more support, and the sky’s the limit for extensions.”
