Inquiry Overview

How do we make it grow?

My professional development has focused on broadening my knowledge on the effects of children spending less time in nature and the health concerns that stem from this disconnect.  Also, how we can mitigate this disconnect between today’s youth and nature in order to foster a need in children to protect what they have left of the natural world.  With the resent explosion of smartphones, social media and computer based technology, people in general have begun to spend a lot less time in the “real world” and a lot more time in a “digital one”.  If we can engage children in nature we can make sure that their generation will be healthier physically and mentally and act as environmental stewards.
