This interactive workshop introduces teachers to BC Tomorrow’s free, online learning tools. A short presentation is followed by a guided tour of BC Tomorrow’s interactive land use simulator and education tools. The innovative simulator allows students to choose their region, look back in time, travel into the future, and then design a future they would like to see. As part of their investigation, students can also incorporate Climate Change projections. Our approach at BC Tomorrow puts the tools into students’ hands giving them the opportunity to learn, share, solve problems and investigate issues as they apply learning to address real concerns and trends. Attendees will be able to access the tutorials, practice with lesson templates, or design ways to incorporate BC Tomorrow into their own classrooms.
