Update #7

The Virtual Trillium Trail used in Real and Virtual Field Trips at O'Hara Elementary School

Comment

This week I got to witness something very special.  The students at the O'Hara Elementary School used The Virtual Trillium Trail in pre and post virtual field trips to help prime and then reinforce learning for the real field trip.

The spontaneity, intellectual curiosity, and social interaction witnessed in the learning activity on biology with wildflowers, ecology and geology and also on
computer technology and art were incredible. Especially impressive was a
student’s interest in how I made the computer model, and I believe the students’ understanding of the visualization process of the using data from long term NSF biological and ecological studies.

Additionally, I loved seeing the excitement and the teamwork!  All combined with curiosity and joy with the awe and wonder the students expressed and shared in a dynamic and spontaneous yet structured lesson was fantastic!
