Field Learning and Gamification in the Age of VR: National Geographic Learning's Virtual Learning Series
Join National Geographic Explorer and NASA Challenger Center Teaching Fellow T.H. Culhane as he describes his expeditions around the world to "bring sustainability home".
T.H. has met people from the poorest villages and urban slums to the richest enclaves and resorts, learning and sharing ways to "be the nexus" where healthy food, clean energy, pure water and zero waste meet so we can thrive as one and have fun doing it!
Culhane will explain how his journeys transformed his teaching practice
into a three ring "sustainability circus" of hands-on-field learning, documentary audio and video production, as well as animated VR/AR/360 simulations where the curriculum is by and for students and teachers.

In this webinar, you will learn how to:
• Create food/energy/water/zero waste technologies and applications in the field and in the classroom
• Teach appropriate technologies and concepts of global sustainability
• Share the concepts of sustainability with your students through teacher and student created Geographically Precise video games.
