A video to learn about the link between volcanic forcing of global climate and the English food crisis of 1258.
A visualization to learn about the factors that influence the climate of a planet.
A video to understand ocean acidification and its impacts.
|This guided lecture and discussion helps students to understand the possible impact of climate change on animal migration (an important animal behaviour) and to explore the neuroscience of migration. The example of monarch butterfly migration is used for discussion and reading.|
An e-learning course to learn about the impact of climate change on children.
A classroom/laboratory activity to calculate the mean daily temperature using hourly temperature data and to compare different statistical techniques for determining this value.
A classroom/laboratory activity to learn about regression analysis of data by using global temperature data over a period of 150 years.
A classroom/laboratory activity to perform linear regression on climate data from the Arctic.
An audio podcast to learn about climate change-related human migration and its outcomes, and to initiate a discussion on policy measures that can help in better management of population movement caused by climate change.
A comic book to understand the effects of climate change on our environment, and specifically, on conch shells, coral reefs, and integrated ecosystems.
A video to learn about hurricanes as heat engines, and the possible effects of increasing sea surface temperature on the intensity and frequency of hurricanes.
A visualization to learn about the infrared (IR) spectra of different greenhouse gases and the effect of greenhouse gases on the Earth’s climate.
A mobile app to learn about glaciers across the world.
This is a UNESCO course for secondary teachers on climate change education for sustainable development. As mentioned by UNESCO, this six day course supports teacher education institutions to introduce climate change education into their pre-service and in-service training programme. The course is designed to give teachers confidence in facilitating climate change education for sustainable development across the curriculum and inside and outside the classroom. The course suggests that the teaching of climate change should go beyond the science classroom. It proposes a pedagogical framework, exercises, regional resource and facilitation guidelines to teacher educators.
A video micro-lecture that discusses Earth’s energy balance and the greenhouse effect of the atmosphere.
