Sturtevant, Rochelle A.; Marshall, Ann
National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration
On July 15, 2009, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration's (NOAA's) Great Lakes Environmental Research Laboratory (GLERL) co-hosted a focus group--Educator House Calls: On-Line Data for Educators. The focus group was conducted at GLERL's main laboratory in Ann Arbor. The workshop was organized and funded by COSEE Great Lakes with student staff support from Eastern Michigan University under the NOAA Environmental Literacy Grant "Sailing Elementary Teachers Towards Ocean Literacy Using Familiar Water Resources." The purpose of the focus group was to assess educator needs that might be filled using existing NOAA GLERL data and to assess on-line formats and mechanisms needed to deliver the data to classrooms. There was also an emphasis on inquiry-based education. This paper presents a list of recommendations gathered from the focus group on the best ways to make NOAA data available to educators.
