Today is Earth Day. That does not mean that we care about our planet today and today only. It means that today we need to draw attention to issues facing our planet. As an online teaching website how can we help?
As an online educator, pumkin strives to create an environment of sustainability. Being online is already saving on natural resources like paper. However, it is not that straight forward. Even online business can make their impact on the planet's ecosystem less harmful. Use less power. Computers use a small amount of power but many computers can consume a large amount. Turn off your computers when you are not using them.
Based in Asia, our offices can get very hot in the summer. So we must try not to crank the air conditioner and rather use fans. We can also encourage our employees to use greener methods of transport to get to and from the workplace. Cycling is also good for your health. The Mayor of London cycles to work so you can too.
Reducing energy consumption is good for business and the planet. See the link below for ways to help your business.
Not only can online educating be more environmental it can also be more effective.
“The report found that students who took all or part of their instruction online performed better, on average, than those taking the same courses through face-to-face instruction”
