What Is an EFT?

Distance learning adventures and live, electronic field trips (EFTs) bring the excitement of learning right to you, your classroom or your non-formal learning event.  You don’t need to load up buses, worry about the weather, or collect money. The experts, topic and location are brought to you electronically via the Internet. 

GrasslandsLIVE: A Distance Learning Adventure brings the information and resources right to your classroom, nature center, visitor’s center, house, or wherever you are.  Just like an in-person field trip, students can ask questions of the experts or post comments on Facebook and Twitter during the webcast.  For teachers, the program and resources on the web site will enable you to meet science education standards.

There are several things you can do before the webcast to help you get the most from the electronic field trip and take advantage of the experts’ knowledge during the program. Check out the resources on the web site. There are LESSON PLANS , LINKS  with background information about grasslands, MULTIMEDIA RESOURCES, and lots of ways to GET INVOLVED .
