Calling all teachers, educators and researchers

As part of. the Teaching the Future Erasmus Plus Project we invite you to advise us on the types of information and data sources you would like to have access to to help teach about climate and the issues associated with climate change.

Visit the short survey at https://forms.gle/xGWD6fvjemLTkdR18 and help us provide you with the resources you need.

The results of the survey will be posted online in this discussion and the project will share its outputs here.

Hi Marianne Mensah  

Thanks. What conditions do you think we should know about?

Do we (teachers?) need to have other data than temperature to teach about climate change? 

For example: Land and Ocean respond differently to climate change - what information do we want to know about, such as ocean currents??

Dear Teachers,

We are seeking your advice, recommendations and ideas 

The Teaching the Future Project has issued an open consultation on climate education - please visit the survey at https://survey123.arcgis.com/share/1dc0b4c187f744248c28831fd751907d and complete it online.

The survey has three sections

1 - your opinions on climate  and climate triggers - what are we most concerned about? (see https://www.behance.net/gallery/88777129/Earths-Sleeping-Giants-Stirring) 

2 - climate research and information 

3 - climate change education

We hope you can help us

I answered both surveys. It was a good exercise and helped me put together an updated, useful list of sources. Good luck, I hope you will get lots of relevant answers. I look forward to the results.

Thank you Ada - very helpful - I hope more teachers and educators will answer the questions - we will share the results on this feed.

Over the summer as part of the Teaching the Future project we have been writing a review of recent academic/professional literature on climate change education - we will publish this shortly and share it here - the results are quite interesting in terms of examples but also recommended pedagogical approaches. It is clear that climate change is an interdisciplinary problem (affects social as well and natural sciences) so attempts to develop approaches in different curriculum subject areas are needed.

We have also undertaken surveys with climate scientists to ask them what they think should be taught and which data / information sources teachers should be accessing.
