Then look no further than the new Get Learning section on Scotland’s Environment website. With maps, data, resources and useful links – all of which have been carefully matched with Curriculum for Excellence levels and National Qualifications – it’s a great source of up-to-date environment-related information for teachers and learners.
This new resource has been developed in partnership with Education Scotland to direct teachers to the information and data they need to bring learning about Scotland’s environment to life. The content is organised within easy-to-understand topics for learners of all ages, from early level through to senior phase. The new Get Learning section is just the latest exciting addition to the £4 million website developed by SEPA, SNH and other national partner organisations.
In addition to maps, data and resources, other features include:
- Instagram posts using #GetLearningScot to allow young people to engage with their local environment, share ideas and ask questions
- Mobile apps to encourage young people to get involved with their environment, collect their own data and become citizen scientists
- Directory of citizen science projects and surveys to encourage learners to collect data about their own environment and take steps to conserve and improve it.
Don’t just take our word for it – take a look for yourself and Get Learning.
