Abstract

The national curriculum of Namibia includes environmental education in Grades 1-4 only, despite research that environmental education is more effective in secondary schools. The goal of this project was to assist the EduVentures Trust with the integration of environmental education into rural Namibian secondary schools through the development of interactive SMART technology lessons for the EduMobile project – a mobile classroom truck that travels to rural schools to educate learners about environmental topics. Our assessment of Namibia’s flawed environmental education curriculum revealed that environmental education could be improved through the implementation of hands-on learning – the method preferred by Namibian learners.
