Innovations in Development: Community-Driven Projects That Adapt Technology f...

NSF Awards: 1423207

2017 (see original presentation & discussion)

Informal / multi-age

This 3-minute video consists of three segments:

1) An introduction that explores the value of paying attention to the natural world and introduces NatureNet, a tool to enable community-developed, technology-supported environmental projects. The three universities (University of Maryland, University of North Carolina,  Charlotte, and University of Colorado) and two community partners (Anacostia Watershed Society and Reedy Creek Nature Center) are introduced, followed by scenes demonstrating how NatureNet is being used at each location. At AWS, volunteer stewards use NatureNet to map, collect data for, and share their environmental projects with each other and the public. At RCNC, naturalists use NatureNet to create projects that encourage visitors to collect data about nature while they are out on the trails and then view it on a large interactive kiosk in the nature center.

2) A screencast to demonstrate how the NatureNet mobile apps (iOS and Android) and website (nature-net.org) allow people to make local observations, view and comment on others' observations, and suggest design ideas, an innovation that helps guide the evolution of the NatureNet platform through crowdsourcing. 

3) Information about how researchers are studying learning and engagement of participants, along with an invitation for viewers to visit the project website (nature-net.org) and the research website (research.nature-net.org) and use NatureNet to explore their own environments.
