BC Tomorrow Land-Use Simulator: Innovative Technology for Sustainability Learning.

This interactive workshop consists of a short presentation on the origins, history and rationale for BC Tomorrow. The presentation also includes student reflections and observations from BC Tomorrow pilot projects, ways to access lesson templates and video tutorials so teachers can successfully implement the learning tools to meet the learning outcomes, curricular, and core competencies at various grade levels. Finally, workshop attendees will be guided through the login process so they have time to practice and design ways to incorporate BC Tomorrow’s learning tools into their own schools and classrooms.
