Melina Gerosa Bellows, Chief Education Officer of the National Geographic Society, writes about her family experience related to some of the topics explored in the Joan Ganz Cooney Center at Sesame Workshop’s guide Family Time with Apps. In her post “Digital Nature for Digital Natives”, she illustrates how she uses technology to connect to nature and support her children’s learning and development. She states, “digital nature for digital natives is a win-win for me, because my kids can explore outside and then continue to experience it indoors.” She gives examples of how she uses tools, such as the Great Nature Project, National Geographic Kids YouTube channel, and iNaturalist.org, to build on her children’s exploration of nature, connect to online communitoes with scientists and create authentic learning experiences.
