Outdoor Learning for COVID-19 YouTube video recording

Research suggests that the community spread of COVID-19 is lower outdoors. The idea of open, child-directed play spaces instead of purpose-built equipment like jungle gyms appears to be the way forward as there is less risk of touching the same things again and again. As a result, there is growing interest in high-quality outdoor learning, in sites across the U.S. and the world.

Learn how to implement outdoor learning in a practical and economical way. Take a virtual tour of a forest school, Barnkids, in Surrey, England and hear the managers share their vision and how best to facilitate learning while adhering to Centers for Disease Control (CDC) guidelines.
