The Out of Eden Walk: An Experiential Learning Journey from the Virtual to the Real

Fantastic lesson plans and experiential learning opportunities come from an extraordinary walk across the world.  Article written by my friend Homa Tavangar (on Edutopia’s Blog) who is the educational advisor for the initiative.  “You are invited to accompany the Out of Eden Walk, as two-time Pulitzer Prize winner and National Geographic Fellow Paul Salopek takes a seven-year, 21,000-mile trek across the planet. The journey is showcased as National Geographic magazine’s cover story by Salopek and is the first cover story available free for nonsubscribers. His epic walk began in January 2013 in East Africa’s Rift Valley, the region that paleoanthropologists consider to be the human race’s “Eden.” He will head north into the Levant; across the steppes of Central Asia to China; by sea from Siberia to Alaska; and then down the length of the Americas to the continental “Land’s End” of our species in Patagonia.” The route looks like this:
