Student conference on global warming: a collaborative network-supported ecologically hierarchic geosciences curriculum

Abstract : A five week global warming curriculum for precollege students has been designed as part of the Learning through Collaborative Visualization Project (Pea, 1993). A collaborative version of the curriculum will be enacted in January, 1996, within twenty classrooms located primarily in Illinois, Michigan, and New Jersey. The primary goals for this curriculum are: A. Forge links between students and the scientific community around a topic of common interest. B. Engage students in scientific investigation using current data sets, analysis tools, and computer communication tools. C. Lead students to consider the earth as an interdependent ecological system that can be analyzed in terms of cycles (especially radiative, hydrological, and carbon) and their interactions at multiple ecological hierarchic levels (e-g., different spatiotemporal resolutions; see below).
