The Legacy Project’s K-12 education program will engage teachers in the development and use of digital media in their instruction. By providing curriculum enhancement and teacher professional development, particularly in the use of digital media, the program will improve teacher knowledge and the ability to deliver effective new learning opportunities to students.

The Redwood Science Project, a founding sponsor, has hosted a series of Natural History Institutes over the past four years designed to improve educators’ knowledge and the quality of their teaching related to biogeography and sustainable environmental systems. It also has taught educators to use digital media in the classroom and in the field.

With additional support, we will expand our institutes, workshops and leadership development programs in strategic locations around the state. In doing so, we can help more teachers in more disciplines meaningfully weave digital media into their lesson plans to better engage their students. Legacy Project participants have been active contributors to the state of California’s ambitious Education and the Environment Initiative (EEI), a new statewide environmental curriculum.
