Learning Lens

Votes: 2

An interactive green schoolyard (or other green infrastructure) learning tool that would use GPS and smartphone cameras to view information about the green space (like Yelp's Monocle app). Students could help populate some data as a class project such as tree/plant species and learn about the different components of the play space (rain garden, type of sub-surface system, native plants etc.) Teachers could upload links to suggested lesson plans and make cross curricular connections.
Additionally, litter is often a problem causing the stormwater system to malfunction, one component of the app could allow locals to "adopt" the space and help maintain the area similar to the Boston fire hydrant app.
