Imagine if you could travel to the icy-cold, remote Arctic with your students in tow. With the remote learning skills you have developed this past school year, you can do it! In this session, you will connect with a real-life polar explorer and talk to them about how a virtual exchange connection with them can enhance your instruction. In this conversation, attendees will understand how asynchronous (articles and on-demand media) and synchronous (video conferencing) opportunities can inspire and enhance your practice. Participants will also learn how to bring other exciting explorers and STEM professionals into the classroom to enhance curriculum and explore STEM careers. By the end of this session, you will be inspired to use your virtual learning expertise to take your classroom on global education journeys to some of Earth’s most remote and exciting places! Adventure awaits!
