Fauville, Géraldine; Queiroz, Anna C. M.; Hambrick, Linda; Brown, Bryan A.; Bailenson, Jeremy N. – Environmental Education Research, 2021
Ocean Acidification (OA) is an emerging environmental issue that is still largely unknown to the public and in its infancy in terms of educational strategies. OA teaching material should address the specific challenges that educators face while building learners' understanding of OA. The objective of this study is two-fold. First, we identified…

Curran, Mary Carla; Ramsey, Andrée L.; Bower, Amy S. – Science Activities: Projects and Curriculum Ideas in STEM Classrooms, 2021
Oceans play an important role in weather and climate through transfers of heat and moisture to the atmosphere, and by moving heat and climate-relevant molecules like carbon dioxide around the globe. Energy also transfers from the atmosphere to the surface of the ocean, traveling down through the water column creating ocean currents that transport…

Banchero, Paola; Rector, Travis A.; VanBallenberghe, Jonathan – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2021
The public's understanding of climate change has been plagued by poor communication, misinformation, and disinformation. Fortunately, there is a growing body of research on effective climate change communication strategies. A popular element of science communication is documentary film. Educational films produced for museums, planetariums, and…

Arnott, Russell – Primary Science, 2020
The durability and variety of plastics mean that they can take an age to break down (or biodegrade) in the environment. Plastic carrier bags will be around for 50 to 100 years, plastic bottles for 600 years, and Styrofoam/polystyrene containers for a whopping 5000 years. As more of these plastic items are added to the ocean, they just build up and…

Winks, Lewis; Ward, Mark; Zilch, Joseph; Woodley, Ewan – Environmental Education Research, 2020
Ocean Literacy is a growing global education movement aimed at deepening and contextualising the human relationship with the ocean. While ocean topics are largely missing from UK school curricula, Ocean Literacy principles offer an opportunity for environmental educators to infuse their programmes with broader perspectives on the ocean, creating…

Irwin, Ruth – Educational Philosophy and Theory, 2020
Understanding climate change is becoming an urgent requirement for those in education. The normative values of education have long been closely aligned with the global, modernised world. The industrial model has underpinned the hidden and overt curriculum. Increasingly though, a new eco-centric orientation to economics, technology, and social…

Guffey, Sarah K.; Slater, Timothy F. – International Journal of Science Education, 2020
In the past few decades, scientific and educational entities in the United States have repeatedly expended considerable fiscal and human resources in an effort to establish contemporary education standards, curriculum frameworks, and assessment tools. These efforts are intended to reform the quantity and quality of K-16 Earth science education…

Wolfson, Jane; Stapleton, Mary; Sezen-Barrie, Asli – Science Teacher, 2020
Ocean acidification (OA) has been called climate change's evil twin for a reason. Increased levels of carbon dioxide, caused by humans burning fossil fuels, are not only causing a rise in global temperature but are also having adverse impacts on marine ecosystems. In the lesson presented in this article, students conduct investigations using…

Giovos, Ioannis; Moutopoulos, Dimitrios K.; Charitou, Anastasia; Gonzalvo, Joan – Applied Environmental Education and Communication, 2020
In Greece, research about Environmental Education in elementary schools is scarce and geographically limited. A total of 1,157 questionnaires focused on the marine environment and, especially, on cetaceans (dolphins and whales), were conducted among 5th and 6th grade primary school students from 25 Greek towns. Results revealed that the awareness…

McPherson, Kerri; Wright, Tarah; Tyedmers, Peter – Applied Environmental Education and Communication, 2020
Ocean education can potentially improve understanding and engage individuals to act sustainably. Within Canada, a country bordered by three oceans with vast ocean resources, there is no formal mandate to teach ocean literacy within the school system. The ocean impacts the economy, culture, and ecology of Nova Scotia. This study examines, through…

Kastens, Kim A.; Zrada, Melissa; Turrin, Margie – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2020
Question-asking is a necessary step towards formulating hypotheses, making decisions, and solving problems, and is Practice #1 in the Next Generation Science Standards. To improve question-asking, educators and researchers need a way to categorize and evaluate students' questions, so as to judge whether an intervention has been effective. We…

Hammett, Amy; Dorsey, Chad – Science Teacher, 2020
To learn with data, students need "data" to explore. This can be deceptive--data-rich experiences typically involve much more than a straightforward science lab. Solving real problems with data means identifying authentic questions that are meaningful to students and provide a foundation for deep inquiry. Such situations often lend…

The Essential Principles and Fundamental Concepts described in Version 3 of this guide represent content that does not fall neatly within traditional science disciplines, but rather supports a focus on integrated science. Many Fundamental Concepts illustrate more than one Essential Principle. This guide presents a vision of an ocean-literate…
