to prepare to offer this challenging program in the classroom
To Prepare to Offer this Challenging Program in the Classroom
  • Camp teachers first learn to understand the tools, hands-on activities, and program materials awaiting them in Camp Internet.
  • They personally experience the computer lab and field learning process that their students will undergo as they turn their classroom into a Camp Internet Outpost, and their school yard or neighborhood into field study resources.
  • Camp teachers become well equipped to launch exciting learning activities immediately in their classrooms.
And while the technology IS exciting, it is important to remember that there are Three Camp Cornerstones
  • Learning to use technology to access valuable educational INFORMATION
  • Working with technology to turn that information into KNOWLEDGE
  • Exploring ways to SHAREKNOWLEDGE using GIS, web, and field report technologies
