Outdoor education has been largely unchanged since the 1960s, where experiential education and outward bound research pointed the industry to use the outdoors as a personal and social development platform. Now as then, our activities are run, our reviews are done and we move on. But where outdoor education has been running along largely unchanged the modern classroom has undergone a technological transformation with projectors, multi media systems, one laptop per child, networked learning, and even virtual classrooms. So we thought its high time that we brought some of these classroom technologies into the field and integrated them into ‘new outdoor education’. We have micro laser projectors that can be used inside a tent, tablet computers, and action cameras. These technologies help everyone collect and share information and bring data to life. We have developed in house an open source flow meter showing river velocity that can be built with off the shelf parts.
