Description

The Shout conference series invites educators and students to take an active role in global environmental issues.  The environmentally-themed “Shouts” are designed to frame our understanding of our relationships and interactions with the natural world: Live, Study, Change, Sustain, Value and Celebrate.

Each Shout connects students and teachers to a live event, teacher networking, and student collaborations focused around a specific theme, and presents students with challenges designed to deepen their learning and engagement. Shout is at once a program framework and a call to action. Join us and make your voice heard

Shout gives participants a framework for success, with resources and tools for exercising social responsibility while building the 21st-century skills of collaboration, innovation, and critical thinking. When students are connected through technology and empowered to build activities in their own way the learning experience extends far beyond the four walls of a classroom.
