Digital Bridge to Nature
Digital Photography Bridge to Nature is a Minnesota DNR initiative. The Raptor Center is partnering with the Minnesota DNR to help facilitate a portion of the workshops. The goal is to have children use the technology of digital cameras to get them outside.
Each four-hour workshop is designed to train approximately 12-24 teachers in any subject area on how to use and apply the digital camera kits to your curriculum. Completion of the workshop will allow you to check out a camera kit and you will earn 4 Continuing Education units.
The workshop will focus on helping you enhance your current curriculum, not add to it! The workshop will cover how to use the digital cameras; basics of photography; hands-on activities with group discussion; brainstorming of curriculum ideas; downloading and editing techniques; and student project ideas.
- FREE access to digital cameras kits with 12 cameras
- Learn new ways to tie digital photography experiences to fulfill state education standards
- Learn how to use student digital photos with WEB 2.0 applications
- Targeted for Grades 3-9
- 4.0 Continuing Education Units Provided
Workshops can be scheduled at your school if you have 12 teachers, or you can come to a workshop hosted by The Raptor Center or another facilitator throughout the state of Minnesota.
