HOMEBOUND LEARNING

Over the past several years, the Foundation has worked on an e-Learning initiative that provides an overview of the U.S. agricultural system. The content is dynamic and largely video-narrated by farmers, ranchers, and growers from across the U.S., telling their stories within agriculture. Our e-Learning modules, supportive resources, and augmented reality videos are useful for a variety of learning environments, and help create an understanding of the importance of agriculture in feeding our growing world population. Since launching this initiative, these resources have reached teachers, state educators, and university professors in all 50 states, becoming an instrumental addition to virtual classrooms nationally.
