GEF Institute's Blended Learning Courses are a great tool to educate secondary school students on green building attributes and benefits, providing them with the educational resources necessary to understand, identify, and improve environmental inefficiencies within their own school buildings. These courses are a fun and engaging way to integrate sustainability and green building concepts into your classroom. The ready to use curriculum include textbook, teacher manual, 10-15 scripted lessons, a hands on audit, and all corresponding supplements (transparencies, handouts, PowerPoints). These materials are easily integrated into your existing curricula. Blended Learning courses are recommended for secondary school classrooms.
