Classroom education has become the primary method of early learning from preschool to college, adult continuing education and job training. Educators and trainers, as well as the students themselves, would benefit from knowing ways to engage in the classroom and improve learning to take in information faster and comprehend it more completely. People are now using Neuro-Linguistic Programming (NLP) to improve learning. The goal for teachers and students using NLP is to develop a connection between them and improve communication. If the student feels that the teacher relates to her,...

I led a teacher workshop at Xavier University of Louisiana on the new GLOBE Weather Curriculum. Teachers left with lots of new knowledge, great ideas, and supplies.  Setting up the Sunny Day bottles Caption Caption Caption Setting up the density box demo that I wanted to share. Most teachers had never seen this.

Starting 2020 off as a GLOBE trainer at a Climate Change event. I am very excited to be teaching WV teachers about the Carbon Cycle and its associated protocols. We will be participating in some exciting learning games also: The Carbon Travel Game and Biomass Units.

Special observations of airplanes and contrails are being collected by a select few as part of a pilot project the GLOBE Clouds team has been working on for a year. The project asks students to use an app that tracks aircrafts, then note if the airplane is or is not creating a contrail. The airplane tracker app suggested notes the height of the airplanes, giving the opportunity to note the altitude of the contrails if present. The GLOBE Clouds team was able to present a first look at the data collected by students at Alpena Elementary/Middle School (Mr. Roger Rose teacher), Treadway...

This year is the 100th Anniversary of the American Meteorological Society, and 26th presentation at the Symposium on Education. This year it will be held in Boston and the K12 Initiatives are on Monday January 13th. I will be sharing our recent work with GLOBE Mission Earth and focusing in on the GLOBE Observer Clouds App. With the recent collaboration with NASA S'COOL Clouds Observations, it is a prime example of the Space to Earth:Earth to Space (SEES) Model, i.e. giving students and citizen scientists the ability to gather imagery from earth observing satellites and from the ground up....
