132. Take It Outside: Getting Students Invested In & Inspired By Nature with Pete Barnes

In this episode of Learning Unboxed, we take another field trip, this time, to the New Albany Intermediate School. Our guide is Pete Barnes, a twenty-five year veteran of education with eighteen of those spent serving young people in New Albany schools. He shares his fresh take on curriculum work involving pollinator gardens, outdoor education, and environmental science – and why it makes such a big difference for kids.

We unbox:

  • What the New Albany campus is like
  • The pollinator garden and other outdoor projects they offer
  • Making the outdoors a part of everyday education
  • The National Geographic Teacher Education Program
  • Using new technology in education
