WE realised that school safaris can play a huge part in WildEarth’s mission to help conserve our world through connecting people to nature. The young people on this planet are our future and if WE can create a love in them for all things wild then in turn they will help to preserve the planet.
In January of this year I received an email from Erik Moore. He is an Instructional Technology Specialist for Landstown High School in Virginia Beach, Virginia in the USA.
He stumbled across safariLIVE in November 2015 whilst searching for LIVE streams that might be useful in geography classes at his school. An Instructional Technology Specialist helps teachers transform learning through the use of purposeful technology integration in the classroom. He is a strong believer that technology has transformed the way we live our lives and is now transforming the way we teach our students in schools.
It just so happened that Graham and I were travelling to Washington DC for a television conference in January and this meant it was the perfect time for us to meet Erik. He very kindly agreed to drive from Virginia Beach to DC and met with us at our hotel.
“safariLIVE makes learning fun, relevant, interesting and personalized. It gives our students access to real world learning experiences from experts across a vast ocean on another continent” – Erik Moore.
A big thank you to Erik and Krissy and WE look forward to many more years of working together.
