What is AL @?
Adventure Learning @, or AL @, is a hybrid online and face to face way of delivering curriculum, where students explore global issues through the adventures of scientists and explorers across the globe.
The format was developed by the Learning Technologies Media Lab at the University of Minnesota, and many great examples of their work can be found in the Earthducation website.
AL@ is our attempt to put AL into the hands of teachers and students. While there is a place for far away expeditions and logistically complex trips, our approach emphasizes a place-based, localized, scaled down approach that we hope will be accessible to a wide range of participants — not just as followers, but as expedition leaders and members. Some examples of our work can be found on the University of Idaho College of Education AL@ website.
