Smithsonian SHOUT Environmental Education Program Inspires Thousands to Explore Water Issues and Take Action

More than 4,500 students and teachers from 18 countries, representing a diverse range of grade levels and learning environments, connected with experts and peers during the live online conference series presented this spring by the Smithsonian SHOUT environmental education program to explore water from academic and real-world perspectives. Educators incorporated “Water Matters” materials into their classrooms to engage students in standards-aligned, interdisciplinary content and project-based learning rooted in environmental education. Now educators can participate in SHOUT, a joint project of the Smithsonian, Microsoft Partners in Learning and TakingITGlobal, through the online archive of the conferences and supplemental resources, and extend student learning beyond the classroom with the new Smithsonian Badges program.
