Schulman, Kathrin; Fuchs, Stephan; Hämmerle, Martin; Kisser, Thomas; Laštovicka, Josef; Notter, Nicole; Stych, Premysl; Väljataga, Terje; Siegmund, Alexander – Review of International Geographical Education, 2021
Many people use satellite images in their professional and everyday lives, and school curricula often require their use. Yet, the ways teachers actually use satellite images in the classroom is often limited, if they use them at all. The YCHANGE project trained teachers to use remote sensing data by themselves and to use it in their classrooms.…

Kulhavy, David; Hung, I-Kuai; Unger, Daniel R.; Viegut, Reid; Zhang, Yanli – Higher Education Studies, 2021
The use of Unmanned Aerial Systems (UAS), also known as drones is increasing in geospatial science curricula within the United States. Within the Arthur Temple College of Forestry and Agriculture (ATCOFA) at Stephen F. Austin State University, Texas, seniors in the geospatial science program complete capstone projects to evaluate current…

Zinzi, Angelo; Pittori, Carlotta; Tagliamonte, Rosa; Nichelli, Elisa – Physics Education, 2021
Since 2017 the Italian Space Agency (ASI) participates to so-called 'Alternanza Scuola-Lavoro' (i.e. 'school-work synergy') outreach projects promoted by the Italian government, and the ASI Space Science Data Center (SSDC) actively contributes to them, with the primary aim of bringing students closer to space-related activities before choosing…

Ruiz, Michael J.; Perkins, James – Physics Education, 2020
The private company SpaceX regularly launches satellites into geostationary orbits. SpaceX posts videos of these flights with telemetry data displaying the time from launch, altitude, and rocket speed in real time. In this paper this telemetry information is used to determine the velocity boost of the rocket as it leaves its circular parking orbit…

Matilsky, Terry – Physics Teacher, 2020
The NASA public archives present a vast resource of authentic satellite data that research astronomers have tapped into for decades. Recently, the same data analysis tools used by professional astronomers have been adapted into a browser-based interface called JS9 for easy use by any interested student. Tutorials and classroom-ready activities…

Adaktylou, Nektaria – International Journal of Educational Methodology, 2020
Satellite remote sensing has been largely adopted in all kinds of environmental applications as it has proved to be an excellent tool for research and decision-making purposes. It has also been recognized as an important educational tool in the past years. However, it has been insufficiently incorporated in school practice, especially at the…

Baratchian, Taher; Hashemi, Shahnaz; Jafari, Ali; Far, Mohammad Soltani – Journal of Educational Psychology - Propositos y Representaciones, 2020
Virtual social networks nowadays play a very important role in getting and receiving daily news. Therefore, it is necessary to know the extent and reasons for users to use this tool and compare it with other media. Therefore, it is essential to know the extent and reasons for users to utilize this tool and compare it with other media. This study…

Walker, Amy Schoenfeld – Journalism and Mass Communication Educator, 2019
While some journalists analyze and verify "open source" materials such as social media, eyewitness video, and satellite imagery to hold leaders and institutions accountable, many journalists and students are not learning basic digital verification skills. Research shows that journalists find this work challenging and that newsrooms do…

Blanco, Philip – Physics Teacher, 2017
Paul Hewitt's "Figuring Physics" in the Feb. 2016 issue asked whether it would take a larger velocity change to stop a satellite in a circular orbit or to cause it to escape. An extension of this problem asks: What "minimum" velocity change is required to crash a satellite into the planet, and how does that compare with the…

Williams, Richard D.; Tooth, Stephen; Gibson, Morgan – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2017
In an era of rapid geographical data acquisition, interpretations of remote sensing products are an integral part of many undergraduate geography degree schemes but there are fewer opportunities for collection and processing of primary remote sensing data. Unmanned Aerial Vehicles (UAVs) provide a relatively inexpensive opportunity to introduce…

Smith, Kayla – Natural Sciences Education, 2017
The world population is expected to reach 9.2 billion by the year 2050. Farmers are faced with the daily challenge of how to feed these people while availability of land and water is dwindling. The growth rates of global agricultural production and crop yields have slowed in the last couple of years, raising fears that the world may not be able to…

Johnston, Jamie; Ksoll, Christopher – Stanford Center for Education Policy Analysis, 2017
In lower- and middle-income countries, including Ghana, students in rural areas dramatically underperform their urban peers. Rural schools struggle to attract and retain professionally trained teachers (GES 2012; World Bank 2012). We explore one potential solution to the problem of teacher recruitment: distance instruction. Through a cluster…

Addison, David W. – ProQuest LLC, 2017
Conductive ink from a printer allows for the fabrication of conductive material with tight tolerances without the cost and time of chemical etching. This paper explores the use of AGIC printable conductive ink on a paper substrate as design tool for antennas as well as classroom use in antenna education. The antenna designs satisfy the…
