Learn how to use the latest free or low-cost media technology to enhance
your lessons and encourage student learning in the great outdoors.
Instructor Kat Gemmer, a high school science teacher at Greeneville High in
Tennessee, will show you how you can create short films and other media
technology to enhance STEM education in your classroom.  This is a great
way to excite students about a new unit or to use as a tool for assessing
learning.  We will also share innovative ways you can bring National Parks
from across the country into your classroom on a virtual field trip using
some simple technology.
