During the technology training session on August 20, teachers will learn how to integrate JASON’s Internet and video tools into their classroom activities.The JASON Foundation for Education provides an interdisciplinary approach to inspiring in students a lifelong passion to pursue learning in science, math, and technology through exploration and discovery.“We are pleased to offer this one-of-a-kind training opportunity to teachers,” said Susan Adams of NHPTV’s Knowledge Network. “Teachers involved in our JASON training tell us they become learners together with their students. The Project gives students with interests in art, science and language a way to get involved in real science applications. "The JASON Project is a multi-disciplinary program that sparks the imagination of students and enhances the classroom experience. From oceans to rainforests, from polar regions to volcanoes, the JASON Project explores Planet Earth and exposes students and educators to leading scientists who work with them to examine Earth’s biological and geological development.Teachers interesting in participating in this training can contact Adams at sadams@nhptv.org or (603) 868-4354.
