Bringing screens outdoors – Photo Hunting

Dr Simon Sambrano1
1Iguanas Outdoor Education, Caracas, Venezuela

 

Abstract:
This highly interactive session will show how screens (electronic devices) can help develop environmental awareness and mindfulness in participants. Smart phones can become allies instead of enemies if we “outsmart” their traditional use and learn how to connect the “digital world” with the “real world”.
Experiences in photo hunting will be presented as well as the results and impact in different groups from underprivileged to well off communities.

Guidelines to implement a photo hunt program will be discussed in addition to expected outcomes and opportunities in the field.
