Our first visit is a great success – thank you Hove Junior!
Our first visit by Hove Junior was a great success today and the mix of hands-on experience and broadcasting live worked well. We will be broadcasting at 1400 every day this week for about 20 minutes so do join us if you can by going to the school zone and then scroll down to pupil presentations.
Each presentation will be archived for viewing at a later date but there is nothing like seeing it happening live! All four cameras should be on-line by the end of tomorrow. It has been a major challenge but Tim Hall and Paul Webster have done an amazing job. The video library is also starting to grow now.
With a background in TV, teaching, academia (University of Sussex) and teacher training followed by the vision to create a community centre to promote the study of environmental change in Lewes, Dr John Parry has developed innovative approaches to engaging many different ages and groups at the Lewes Railway Land Local Nature Reserve for over 25 years.
He has had direct experience of environmental education policy making and has engaged students over many years with his mix of theoretical background, conceptual reach and practical experience on the ground.
As Director of the Railway Land Project he masterminded the development of the Linklater Pavilion - a purpose built, award-winning, hexagonal building that now serves as an environmental community hub from which the latest Railway Land Live! project will be run.
