The Teacher Ranger Teacher professional development experience at Klondike Gold Rush National Historical Park allows teachers to work with new technologies to help tell the history of the gold rush era in Skagway and Dyea, Alaska, as well as stories from the historic Chilkoot Trail. Teachers will have the opportunity to use iPads, Go Pros, and other new technologies to develop distance learning programs that can be utilized by teachers across the nation. Teachers will gain development in creating place-based curriculum, as well as working hands-on with local Alaskan youth in facilitating fun and educational programs.
Klondike Gold Rush Rush NHP has selected a Teacher Ranger Teacher for the 2014 season. Please check back in the winter/spring of 2015 for new professional development opportunities.
