Rocky Mountain National Park Distance Learning Program
Rocky Mountain National Park
2018 Innovative EE Program Award Recipient
In the summer of 2017, Rocky Mountain National Park’s Education and Outreach team added a distance learning program to their already popular classroom program and field trip programming repertoire to begin connecting with students in a brand new way. Distance and bus transportation funding shortages no longer keep schools from “visiting” their National Park. Through utilizing basic video conferencing platforms such as Google, Zoom, and Skype, students across the country (and the world!) get a chance to sit down with a ranger to explore various topics relevant to Rocky Mountain National Park.
