NMEA Ocean Literacy Committee hosts three-part winter webinar series on Ocean Literacy

Posted By Lisa D. Tossey, Wednesday, March 8, 2017

Ocean Literacy guide

The NMEA Ocean Literacy Committee hosted a three-part webinar series this winter, with each webinar covering a different topic and the topics building on the one prior. Details for each webinar and links to recordings of them can be found below. 

Webinar 1: Exploring and Applying the Ocean Literacy Scope and Sequence for Grades K–12

View a recording of this webinar here > 

This interactive webinar engaged participants in opportunities to explore the Ocean Literacy Scope and Sequence for Grades K–12. It discussed how to apply these grade-level appropriate conceptual progressions, designed to increase Ocean Literacy, to the development of learning experiences and instructional materials for use in K–12 classrooms, informal environments, and professional learning opportunities for educators.

Presented by:

  • Catherine Halversen, Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley
  • Craig Strang, Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley
  • Lynn Tran, Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley
  • Lynn Whitley, Wrigley Institute of Environmental Studies, University of Southern California

Duration: 90 minutes

NOTE: During this webinar, it was suggested participants have ready access to a conceptual flow diagram that was investigated, a copy of which can be found here >

Webinar 2: Alignment of the Ocean Literacy Framework with the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS)

View a recording of this webinar here > 

This webinar built participant's familiarity and understanding of the Ocean Literacy - NGSS alignment tool. It described why alignment of the Ocean Literacy Framework with NGSS is needed, and explained the rating scale used to describe the different relationships between the Ocean Literacy Principles and the Disciplinary Core Ideas that comprise the Next Generation Science Standards. Participants explored the alignment tool through the examination of particular grade bands, Ocean Literacy Principles and DCIs, along with the ratings explanations provided by a panel of experts.

Presented by: 

  • Sarah Pedamonte, Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley
  • Craig Strang, Lawrence Hall of Science at UC Berkeley
  • Lynn Whitley, Wrigley Institute of Environmental Studies, University of Southern California

NOTE: During this webinar, we suggested participants have ready access to the alignment documents, as well as a copy of the NGSS and the Ocean Literacy Scope and Sequence.

Prior to this webinar, we recommended watching this video introduction to the NGSS in NSTA’s Learning Center if you are not familiar with the Next Generation Science Standards.

Duration: 60 minutes

Instructions for Viewers: 
Please note that at several points during this webinar you will want to pause the recording to explore the alignment documents yourself. The recorded webinar has been edited to eliminate the time periods when we gave participants an opportunity to review these documents before moving on to the next part of the presentation.

Webinar 3: Organizing for Ocean Literacy - Implementation at Different Scales

View a recording of this webinar here > 

This webinar provided examples of how educators, scientists, and policy makers have deployed the Ocean Literacy Framework and the Ocean Literacy/NGSS Alignment document. It focused on moving from ideas to impact by looking at examples of Ocean Literacy-inspired curricula, non-formal programs with a focus on Ocean Literacy, and how the alignment of NGSS with Ocean Literacy can be leveraged to support funding efforts, strategic planning activity, and teacher professional learning.

Presented by:

  • Kurt Holland, Lead Science Communicator, Broader Impacts West
  • Diana Payne, Connecticut Sea Grant
  • Sarah Schoedinger, NOAA Office of Education

Duration: 60 minutes 

Webinar organizers are interested in feedback on this webinar. After viewing it, please take a couple minutes to answer four brief questions.
