Smithsonian Launches Environmental Education Program

The Shout Environmental Exploration Program, a resource from the Smithsonian for teaching about the environment, is returning for its second year. Designed to expand current instruction, the program will offer a variety of tools that teachers can use when teaching about the environment.

Excerpts:

The theme this year is "Water Matters" and the series launches January 19 with a teacher preview session at 3 p.m. EST. Interested educators can register at shoutlearning.org.

The launch will be followed by three webinars. The first is "Water Questions: When We Want to Learn More," which is set for February 7-8, featuring seven sessions led by Smithsonian experts. Future webinars are set for March 21 and May 2.

The program is a joint effort of the Smithsonian with Microsoft Partners in Learning, a 10-year commitment launched by Microsoft in 2003 for nearly $500 million to help education around the world, and TakingITGlobal, an international education effort launched in 2000 that today has 20 million users. Funding is provided by a Smithsonian Youth Access Grant and by LearningTimes, the conference's producer.
