Must - Be anchored in NEON science, technology, & cyberinfrastructure Reflect NEON’s uniqueness generally Significantly influence ecology education nationally Informed by successful, well studied programs Based on education research Make excellent use of partners I. Support public use of NEON Example: Virtual Field Trip for Students :  I. Support public use of NEON Example: Virtual Field Trip for Students NEON education portal Focus on grand challenges but domain-specific Flexible - different learners Excite and motivate students Prepare them for specific activity Slide14:  Virtual Field Trip Ecology of Fire - Many Domains Slide15:  TX Tech Fire Ecology Center K-12 Trip leader Slide18:  Konza Prairie - Core Site Slide19:  Work with data Slide21:  Prepare K-12 students for hands-on lesson aligned with standards Partner - e.g. National Science Teachers Association (NSTA), LTER Schoolyard Ecology Which K-12 students? Slide22:  VIRTUAL FIELD TRIP College students - prepare them to work with fire data Partners ESA & Teaching Issues & Experiments in Ecology Yellowstone % cover - Turner et al. 2003 Which students? Slide23:  Focus on ‘scientific & ecological thinking’ • The kinds of questions NEON ecologists are interested in and why • Kinds of data NEON scientists are producing • They can understand, work with, and contribute data • Scale - temporal/spatial • Interactions - e.g. introduced species and fire Slide24:  Decision Makers? • Who would most benefit from NEON data and data products? • How do we find out what “they” really need? • How to effectively get data etc. to them?
