Localized! Leveraging Global and Local Data Sets to Build a Statewide System for Connected Climate Learning

This session will report on a work-in-process to create a system of technology-enabled, data-rich, localized climate learning experiences. Since 2005, the Gulf of Maine Research Institute has brought ~70% of Maine’s 5th/6th grade cohort annually to our marine research lab for a 2.5-hour exploration of ecosystem complexity. We are now renovating the program’s technology and learning experiences to combine global data sets (sea surface temperature), local data sets (lobster landings), and multitaction technology to enable students to investigate the impacts of climate change in the Gulf of Maine. By completion of the project, we will have extended this informal learning experience through connected learning experiences in the classroom, in regional science centers, in public libraries, and through teacher professional development. A digital Field Notebook enables assembly of student-created assets from across these environments, as well as from experiences chosen by students themselves.
