How can we
give young people opportunities to grow through productive involvement with
their local community? In this webinar, veteran educator Bob Coulter draws on
more than 30 years of experience as he shares strategies to support young
people in their efforts to become confident, self-directed citizens. These
ideas are made practical through recommendations for productive uses of digital
technology and a review of frameworks that have proven useful for designing
community-based learning experiences.
Bob Coulter is director of the Litzsinger Road Ecology Center, a division of the Missouri Botanical Garden. The Center is home base for a research and development group exploring ways to support place-based education, integration of technology with environmental experiences, and nature-based approaches to character development. The Center also partners with local environmental groups on urban ecology research and restoration projects. In an earlier life Bob was an award-winning elementary school teacher in Atlanta, Memphis, Boston, and St. Louis. His book No More Robots: Building Kids Character, Competence, and Sense of Place was published by Peter Lang.
