FIELD Edventures (formerly Wisconsin Green Schools Network) connects with educators to explore the outdoors, foster inquiry, and engage learners through discovery. Rooted in Wisconsin, we are developing a robust network of educators across the state and beyond to engage the rock-skipping, frog-catching spirit that lives in each of us—from school leaders to teachers to students.
FIELD Edventures works side-by-side with teachers to infuse place-based environmental education into regular school curricula. FIELD Edventures does not add “one more thing” to educators’ plates, we help educators make sense of what is on their plates.
Professional learning takes many forms including: workshops for early childhood through post-secondary educators, online courses, and in-depth coaching where we work side-by-side with teachers to co-plan, co-teach, and co-reflect for long-term instructional change.
Relevant, place-based content, especially at the elementary level, is needed in the classroom to use as a springboard for outdoor field adventures. Our EEK! Environmental Education for Kids website offers student-friendly content that teachers need as a catalyst to connect, explore, and engage in learning outside.
Technical assistance and support for long-term sustainable change often needs to come from a partner organization. FIELD Edventures works with partner schools to seek funding, transform instructional design, develop coherence models, re-envision curriculum frameworks, and more.
