Fresh Air Educators is excited to bring the Outdoor Education Course, a new outdoor education program designed for virtual schools and other blended learning programs, to the iNACOL Blended and Online Learning Symposium, which runs November 8-11, 2015 in Orlando, Florida.
The annual conference, which is organized by the International Association for K-12 Online Learning (iNACOL), is the online education industry’s leading event for K-12 online, blended and competency-based learning, and attracts the leading experts, practitioners and researchers in the field.
“We’re tremendously excited to have the opportunity to be at iNACOL this year,” said Kerry Moher, VP at Fresh Air Educators. “The Outdoor Education Course provides high schools with a unique opportunity to deliver the excitement of outdoor education on an interactive online platform, with a very real world result at the end of the course: a state safety certification.”
The innovative offering, which leverages Fresh Air Educators’ state-approved courses in areas like boating, hunting, snowmobiling and ATV’ing, has already found a receptive audience with leading organizations such as the Florida Virtual School, and with the tens of thousands of students enrolled.
“It’s the feedback from students that has really proven to us that we are onto something,” said Moher. “We’ve had students who have never had the opportunity to experience outdoor recreation discover a passion for these activities through the Outdoor Education Course.”
Said one student from Florida, “Outdoor Education has taught me the benefits of staying active, being safe, and experiencing wildlife, all while meeting the requirements to earn a PE credit, boater safety license and a hunter safety certificate. Because of the FLVS Outdoor Education Course, not only am I more educated about the world around me, but I also have a new sense of curiosity and adventure.”
At iNACOL, Fresh Air Educators will demonstrate how virtual schools can customize and implement the Outdoor Education Course, including how to integrate the offering seamlessly within their own learning management systems.
