We would like to create an infographic that compellingly tells the story of why it's worthwhile for teachers to travel all the way to the Peruvian Amazon for professional development, inspiring and empowering them to teach in new ways when they return home.
It will enable us to provide teachers with compelling evidence to convince their administration, school boards, and possible funders that the Educator Academy in the Amazon provides transformational professional development that will open up insights and opportunities for themselves and their students.
The Morpho Institute supports the key role of K-12 education in realizing the global goal of environmental conservation and sustainability. To achieve this goal, The Morpho Institute provides professional development programs and curriculum resources which support local to global environmental stewardship in K-12 instruction.
In collaboration with US and international partners, The Morpho Institute provides US educators the opportunity to experience the Amazon rainforest as a compelling context for developing a global perspective on biological and cultural resources, participating in conservation, exploring sustainability, and inspiring environmental stewardship. Our field workshops and resources apply key elements of inquiry, STEM, and placed-based learning to assist educators in making these critical local to global connections in their classrooms, instruction, and curricula.
