Herb Broda

Herb Broda is an emeritus professor of education at Ashland University. His books, Schoolyard-Enhanced Learning and Moving the Classroom Outdoors, reflect Herb's passion for helping teachers see ways to use the schoolyard as a teaching tool. He is very concerned about the shrinking amount of time that children (and adults!) are spending outdoors as the ever-present glow of video screens coaxes us to stay inside. Herb's idea of a perfect day is sharing nature with his family.
