COSEE-West Ocean Observing Institute: Using Online Data in the Classroom
Category: COSEE Conference Resources, Ocean Sciences 2012, For Educators
Resource Type: Poster
Date Posted: 02/21/2013
 Educators at sea
Since 2008, educators have convened for five days during the summer at UCLA, USC and three informal science center partners; NASA/Jet Propulsion Laboratory, Ocean Institute and Cabrillo Marine Aquarium. Throughout the day, hands-on activities engage educators in marine science concepts, ocean observing technology, how to collect data and use online data in the classroom. Each day a featured researcher presents their research using drifters, gliders, satellites or other ocean observing technology, followed by questions and answers. Ocean Literacy Principles are tied to lessons and activities. At the end of the Institute participants are required to turn in an original lesson plan and present one online data source that they will use in their classroom.

Presented by Rachel Kennison, Patricia Kwon, Pat Harcourt, Lynn Whitley, Gwen Noda, Linda Chilton, Linda Duguay, Peggy Fong, Peter Tuddenham, and Tina Bishop at the 2012 Ocean Sciences Meeting in Salt Lake City, UT
