Learning Frameworks Overview
Observations are a multi-sensory way of noticing and learning about socio-ecological phenomena in the world. Through scaffolding and guidance, systematic observations can become a form of data collection. This framework is intended to support educators in facilitating and scaffolding observations and data collection in field-based learning environments.
