Today was my last day of the Place Based Learning workshop that I participated in with the NPS in Salem, MA. It was was wonderful week filled with a nice balance of hands-on learning and guest speakers. Today a speaker came from kids consortium to talk about service learning. This person was very knowledgeable. Kids Consortium does a lot of service learning training. It was a very valuable experience.
