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.
In addition, the Foundation has the capability and experience building Next Generation Science Standard curriculum with partners that incorporates unique multimedia experiences for students, including video interviews, e-learning experiences, animated infographics, and in-classroom exercises.
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.
