“Combining the education of young people with marine conservation and the innovative uses of social media and distance learning.”
Dr Joshua Drew is a Lecturer and M.A. Program Advisor in the Department of Ecology, Evolution & Environmental Biology at Columbia University.
In 2011 Joshua found a way to combine his two loves; educating young people about marine conservation and the innovative use of social media!
Using platforms such as Ning, YouTube and Twitter, Joshua successfully connected students from Chicago with their counterparts in the Fiji Islands. In an interview with The Naked Scientists, Joshua explained that “The real hallmark was getting the students learning from each other”.
