National Geographic and the Bradbury Science Museum Association invites Northern New Mexico School Districts to take advantage of the following free in-person Professional Development workshop. Our priority areas include middle & elementary schools in diverse, under-served, or under-resourced areas.
National Geographic Educator Certification Workshop
In this interactive session, educators will discuss how they teach with a global and geographic perspective, reflecting on their teaching missions and collaborating to build upon one another's best project ideas. They'll also be introduced to National Geographic's Learning Framework, which is a set of attitudes, skills, and knowledge areas that embody the attributes of an explorer-one who seeks solutions to our world's most pressing problems.
This session counts as Phase 1 of the free professional learning program known as the National Geographic Educator Certification Program. As educators go on to complete Phases 2 and 3, they will have the opportunity to try out new lessons and activities that challenge students to solve real-world problems. National Geographic Certified Educators also receive special access to National Geographic education resources and an online community of like-minded individuals.
