Educator Workshop: Building Your Climate Story
Join us for a workshop spanning two days on how you can connect place, people and learning.
Environmental data is a vast and powerful tool for telling stories, supporting learning, and providing context and evidence for investigations as well as helping us all to understand, respond to, and prepare for changes in Earth systems. The NOAA Environmental Science Training Center team invites educators to participate in a 1½ day virtual workshop designed to support the creation of climate data stories that explore the wealth of climate data and encourage the use of climate data in telling stories that resonate with both student and adult audiences. During this workshop we will:
- Raise awareness of and build skills in the use of existing climate data and associated data resources
- Discuss ways in which climate data can support student learning, investigations, and stewardship and civic action opportunities
- Develop data stories that support your education programming
This 1½-day workshop will take place March 4 (9 a.m.-3 p.m.) and March 5 (9 a.m.-12 noon), 2021. This is a blended virtual workshop, where some time will be synchronous (where we are all online and learning together), and other sessions will be asynchronous (where individuals or small groups will work offline and at their own pace digging into and exploring workshop content and resources).
