Hosted by the Aquatic Resource Education Center in Smyrna, “How to use Geoteaming to Explore and Assess Almost any Subject” is a great STEM activity to get your students or group using geocaching to explore science, social studies, math and many more cross-curricula subjects. Geoteaming builds teamwork, comfort using technology and develops inquiry and exploration skills.
The GeoTeaming workshop is for educators looking for ways to immerse their students in technology while being active and working in teams. Teachers will be introduced to a number of cross-curricula activities including:
- Cache & Dash (Science, Phys. Ed)
- Multiple Choice Mixer (any subject)
- Identification Station (Science)
- “Coin” Collecting (Math, Science)
- Evaluation Stations (Social Studies)
- Context Clues (Geography) and much more!
Using GPS builds skills such as compassing, data visualization and data transfer. This is a great way to practice technology in an outdoor environment while promoting teamwork. Not to mention it’s just a FUN way to teach GPS skills using practically ANY subject!
This workshop will be very active. Prepare to be outside moving about and bring your team spirit!
The workshop will take place from 9:00am-12:00pm on Tuesday, August 6, 2013, at the Aquatic Resource Education Center (AREC), 4876 Haypoint Landing Road, Smyrna, DE.
