2 Data availability: Contact: D. Karl (

3 Approximately monthly cruises to Sta. ALOHA (22°45N, 158°W) since Oct 1988 Core physical, chemical and biological measurements (e.g., CTD, DIC-alk, nutrients, DOC- N-P, POC-N-P) and bio- optics Rate measurements (e.g., primary production and particulate matter export) Hawaii Ocean Time-series: Its HOT!

4 Explore Experimet Educate founded 1 Aug 2006 Create, Collaborate, Communicate

5 C-MORE Int. HQ – Univ. Hawaii Honolulu, Hawaii, USA

6 C-MORE CONNECTIVITY University of Hawaii – lead Monterey Bay Aquarium Research Institute Woods Hole Oceanographic Institution OSU UCSC MIT

7 OPPORTUNITIES Important scientific questions Enormous education/outreach potential Leveraged collaborations/funding Enabling technologies Global interest Self-assembled team of experts

10 SEA-IT-LIVE Sea Education by Accessing Integrated Technologies: Learning Involving a Virtual Experience Eric Grabowski & Mark Hill August 24, 2009

11 What is SEA-IT-LIVE? Virtual Field Trips –Live from sea and interactive –Theme and script –Host Educational Website –Background and lesson plans –Key concepts –Data and research SEA-IT-LIVE

12 Applications Virtual field trip aboard a research vessel –Students (6-12) and community members –Learn about microbial oceanography Educational tool for teachers –Integrating technology and education –Standards based curriculum Showcase C-MORE and HOTs research, discoveries, and collaboration –General public, students, and teachers SEA-IT-LIVE

13 Partnership Kapolei Middle School –Pilot program –Researchers will work with teachers Create curriculum aligned with standards Create laboratory assignments across all grade levels aligned with episodes Help guide the direction of the episodes SEA-IT-LIVE

14 Episode Ideas Scientific Method – how its applied in oceanography Food Web Oceanographers in the Field Hawaii Ocean Time-series Three part series about global warming –How its affecting the ocean –How oceanographers study this –Answers they are finding SEA-IT-LIVE

16 Timeline: Pilot Project Funding (Dave Karl) –Goal is to have pilot episode and corresponding classroom activities finalized by January 2010 NSF grant proposal submitted June 24, 2009 –For funding starting 2010 –Long term goal to offer PDCP course for episode and classroom curriculum development SEA-IT-LIVE

17 Timeline: Pilot Project –Pre-developed episode concept (overarching theme aimed to fit 6 th,7 th,and 8 th grade) –Teacher input on episode content and classroom activities (lab) fitting the theme Articulation days 1. Match standards to overarching theme 2. Teachers bring current activities for the above standards 3. Share current activities 4. Brainstorm and develop new or modified activities SEA-IT-LIVE

18 Timeline: Funded Project –3-4 Episodes per year These will be dictated by Teacher/Researcher collaboration –Ongoing Professional Development with PD credit possibility SEA-IT-LIVE

19 Thank You!
