C&I's Aaron Doering and Earthducation featured in UNEARTH News

DoeringA-2011.jpgDepartment of Curriculum and Instruction Associate Professor and Learning Technologies Media Lab Co-Director, Aaron Doering and the LTML project, Earthducation are featured in the article, "The Power of Storytelling in Climate Change Education," published this week by UNEARTH News, a nonprofit news agency based in the United Nations.

The article highlights the necessity for culturally-relevant curriculum when visiting remote regions impacted by climate change. Doering states, "Climate change education is going to be motivated by these stories that people want to share. What we're seeing now is that formal schooling does not have a focus on traditional practices and how it's changing within the environment."
