In the United States children spend almost eight hours a day on electronic devices of some kind. Every hour in front of an iPad or Playstation is an hour not spent outside. Don’t think that matters? Think again; getting kids outside benefits them in all sorts of ways, and might be one of the factors that will help the American educational system create better outcomes.
This week we sit down with Chris Aaby of the Catamount Institute to talk about why outdoor education is vital for childhood development and the science behind it. We also chat about running a non-profit and how the Catamount Institute is using different ideas about business efficiency to make their non-profit run smarter.
You can check out all of the great things the Catamount Institute does here. Below are some of the graphs that we reference in the show.
