The Ocean Observatories Initiative (OOI) will reshape the way ocean science is conducted. Recent advances in the delivery of web-based education, and use of visualization technology and data visualization tools in educational contexts, have led to the development of on-line platforms for instruction that engages students in active scientific inquiry by collecting and analyzing data of real world phenomena. The OOI Education and Public Engagement (EPE) Implementing Organization will leverage these technologies for ocean education. As the OOI develops and deploys transformative tools necessary to understand the changing oceans, it will also enable the effective translation of results into understandable information usable by educators and potential workforce participants.
To this end EPE will construct a series of software tools and a web-based social network to support engagement of a wide range of education users and free choice learners. These tools will enable them to enhance their undergraduate education and engage the free choice learners using real-time and streaming data provided by the OOI.
Presented by Mike Crowley, Scott Glenn, Janice McDonnell, Sage Lichtenwalner, Mike Mills, Steve Levenson, Annette deCharon, Carla Companion, Avinash Rude, Joe Wieclawek, Debi Kilb, Allison Fundis, and Craig Risien at the 2012 Ocean Sciences Presentation, Salt Lake City, UT
