You can adapt various components of the Ideas for Action activities to a variety of settings in order to engage students in cannabis education and provide opportunities for them to become leaders and advocates for healthy living in their school and community. These settings include learning at school (face-to-face learning), learning at home (online learning), or a combination of face-to-face and online learning (blended learning). Adapting these activities for use in various settings supports educators and student leaders in continuing to foster critical thinking, student leadership, and advocacy. Through online teacher-facilitated discussions and small-group collaboration, synchronous or asynchronous learning (refer to “Key Terms”), using school board-supported technology, students continue to consider essential questions such as “How do I share this information with others?”, “How can I engage others in conversation about cannabis to help them be more informed and make safer choices?”, and “How do I promote healthy, safer decision making and choices with my peers, in my school, and in my community?” For suggestions for adapting components of these activities to an online and/or blended learning setting, consult the end of the “How do we do it” section for each activity, “Ideas for Use in a Variety of Settings.”
