VIDEO: Scott Sampson on “The Extinction of Experience: Youth, Nature, and Sustainability in the Digital Age”

Paleontologist and educator Scott Sampson, author of Dinosaur Odyssey: Fossil Threads in the Web of Life, has devoted much of his time recently to discussing and sharing his views about children and nature. If you’re not already reading his blog The Whirlpool of Life, it should be on your radar. He is also an important part of the PBS children’s program Dinosaur Train, instilling the show with encouragement to kids to explore nature. In September 2011, Sampson gave the 61st Annual Frederick W. Reynolds Lecture for Continuing Education at the University of Utah, “The Extinction of Experience: Youth, Nature, and Sustainability in the Digital Age.” Clicking on the image below will take you to the lecture online, as it has not been uploaded to YouTube or Vimeo:
