Upcoming teacher workshop explores Lake Superior estuary and technology
June 11–12, 2012
Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve
Registrations are due by June 2, 2012, for Science and Stories of the St. Louis River Estuary: Exploring Technology for Teaching About the St. Louis River. The FREE workshop will take place on June 11-12, 2012, at the Lake Superior National Estuarine Research Reserve on Barkers Island in Superior, Wisconsin.
At the workshop, teachers and informal educators will join scientists, geographic information specialists, and mobile-device geoquest developers to learn about the St. Louis River Estuary, which flows into Lake Superior. Participants will tour the estuary by boat and on foot using geocaching, Global Positioning Systems, a new website. An introduction to the ARIS authoring tool (ARIS a storytelling app that allows users to create and share their own location‐based tours) will give participants a foundation for developing interactive geoquests and using place-based games to meet classroom standards and informal education goals.
