Over the past several years, the Foundation has worked on an e-Learning initiative focused on providing an overview of the U.S. agricultural system. The content is dynamic and largely video-narrated by farmers, ranchers and growers from across the United States telling their stories within agriculture. Our e-Learning modules, supportive resources, and augmented reality videos are valuable in a variety of learning environments to bring understanding and an appreciation for the importance of agriculture in feeding our ever-growing world population. Our Homebound Learning has reached teachers, state educators, and university professors in all 50 states, becoming an instrumental addition to virtual classrooms nationally.
HOW IT WORKS
Farm Journal Foundation offers e-learning materials that provide an authentic and wide-ranging view of agricultural food production. In these these videos farmers describe sustainable management of natural resources and how their business practices have evolved.
The e-learning tools are available to families and educators at no cost and can be found below. All resources are accompanied by supporting usage guides.
To support community learning during these challenging times, we hope these resources and guides are beneficial to developing your lesson plans and achieving goals for your students.
Please feel free to take our survey or touch base with our coordinators with ideas or requests for future e-learning materials.
