Project Noah was created to provide people of all ages with a simple, easy-to-use way to share their experiences with wildlife. By encouraging your students to share their observations and contribute to Project Noah missions, you not only help students to reconnect with nature, you provide them with real opportunities to make a difference. Once you're registered as a teacher, you can create a new place-based mission for your students. Get them excited about nature by experiencing wildlife observation first-hand.

Learnist: A Helpful Tool on the Road to Inquiry The meaningful and careful use of technology is one of the most significant conversations in education today. When educators offer students greater access to knowledge through technology, and encourage them to use that knowledge to inquire about the world around them and beyond, they are providing students a chance to succeed in even the toughest conditions. I teach eighth- and tenth-grade English and sixth-grade Speech/Drama for Stockton Collegiate International Schools. Our mission is to "offer the rigorous, relevant and practical International Baccalaureate (IB) curricula and methodology to urban students grades K-12 in order to prepare them for post-secondary education and global citizenship in the 21st century" and to "enable students to become literate, self-motivated, competent, lifelong learners by providing a multi-cultural, student- centered environment." Although our school is only in its third year, we are already making a mark on the community.

Learnist for Educators » Online Several months ago I registered for an account with Learnist, one of the more recent of a growing number of options for managing and sharing web-based resources. There’s no avoiding, at least from where I’m sitting, the popularity of tools like this among educators looking for better ways to not only track current trends, but also engage students. Similar to Pinterest, “a virtual pinboard” where you can “organize and share the things you love,” Learnist is also structured with online boards that feature visually appealing layouts. Learnist’s more focused mission is to “make it easy to share what you know and learn new things.” Currently, Learnist requires an invitation for new registration, but it’s easy enough to submit a request online. In the Classroom … Through the creation of “learn boards” with posted “learnings,” instructors at all levels of education are finding ways to implement Learnist as a resource for students in their online and off-line courses. … and Beyond

Texas Nature Trackers More than ever, people are interested in watching and learning about Texas wildlife. Texas Parks and Wildlife Department, along with other partners, offers Texans the opportunity to do just that while making valuable contributions to the conservation of animal and plant species in the state. Texas Nature Trackers, associated with the Texas Master Naturalist Program, is a citizen-science monitoring effort designed to involve volunteers of all ages and interest levels in gathering scientific data on species of concern in Texas.
