Over the past few years I have been asked how to run a successful international collaboration from school to school. After much thought and reflection I have decided to blog about my experiences and the knowledge I have gained. As an experienced teacher who has had success with multiple International Collaborations, I would advise you and your GLOBE students to start by getting involved in an existing GLOBE campaign online, rather than trying to start a project of your own. This is a great way to get your feet wet before you dive in. Participating in other campaign projects is a fantastic...

Many of us are so used to having clean freshwater that is easily accessible that we don't often stop to marvel at the fact that we are incredibly fortunate. The majority of our freshwater comes from our water cycle, and precipitation is unevenly distributed across the globe. You can learn more about the importance of clean freshwater resources in this "one-pager" entitled "Precious Freshness".   During our ENSO Phase III Webinar #3, we will be focusing on water quality in Europe and Eurasia. We will host this webinar at 18:30 UCT, and hope we will have many of you from around...

Greetings ENSO Participants, Last night, we had an amazing ENSO Short Observation & Data Analysis (SODA) webinar featuring Shumate Middle School teacher, Mr. Jeff Bouwman. Jeff shared how his students have been taking GLOBE ENSO protocol measurements and exploring the campaign's three "Guiding Investigative Questions."  Please visit the ENSO Phase III Webinar Page to view this archived webinar and to learn more about the SODA events and upcoming webinars. You will also see archived and future ENSO Phase III Monthly Science and Research webinar information. Brian

We've been busy for the last few months updating the GLOBE website with a new look and feel and new features.  The goal is to both refresh the site as well as to really highlight all the work everyone is doing.  You'll find new capabilities on the home page including an animation of the last 7 days worth of data, and a "leaderboard" for each protocol.  If you're looking for someone to collaborate, look at the leaderboard to find the most active teachers in any region or country. Your My Pages will be changing too - featuring your training accomplishments, with more...
