The Forest Academy: Edtech Tools to Teach Forest Ecology
The Domtar Corporation today announced the launching of an interactive, educational site The Forest Academy. The edtech tools, introduced a few months ago, has reached a milestone of 25,000 visitors. The Forest Academy builds on Domtar’s original youth education website “Tree World” that had been developed in the 1990s. It provides elementary school students with fun, informative games about trees and forest ecology.
“We’re thrilled that teachers and parents are finding the new site to be a useful and engaging learning tool,” notes Pascal Bossé, Domtar Vice-President Communications and Investor Relations. “We put a lot of effort into creating the site’s top quality educational content, but the flash programming of the games is what makes it fun for adults and kids to learn, and what makes The Forest Academy so unique.”
