Climate Education in an Age of Media
We have found that student media-making can be used to overcome many of the challenges that climate change education presents and is an excellent way to bring active, social, and affective learning to one of the most important and most complex problems facing human society today.
CAM's Approach to overcome many of the challenges of climate change education focuses on seeing climate change as an educational challenge and opportunity as well as using media production to educate and engage students.
- Media production can engage students, enable them to learn by teaching others, and give them a voice in the societal discourse about climate change.
- Systems thinking provides a unifying framework for understanding complex, dynamic, and interdisciplinary aspects of climate change.
- Simulation games provide students with immersive experiential learning environments.
