LEARNING ONLINE CENTER

Thanks for visiting my website. In this section you'll find current environmental activities and regional examples of important ecological issues. You'll also discover active links to valuable webpages. Each link contains innovative web exercises designed for active learning using some of the vast resources of the Internet. Ultimately, the aim of this website is to foster attitudes of stewardship and environmental citizenship like Mayas did. Mayans were water sorcerors and they prayed for rain to the God Chac to live a better life. Their magic and rituals were based in the care for the community of life and the recognition of interdependence and intrinsic value of all beings.
