Planning for the Future of Geo-cybereducation Workshop


January 6-8, 2010
Hilton Arlington and Towers, Arlington, Virginia

Final Report: Planning the Future of GeoCyberEducation:

Sponsored by the National Science Foundation. The National Science Foundation (EHR) has made an investment (tens of millions of dollars) in the continuum from research to the classroom. The challenge facing NSF is that past investments are not well connected nor utilized by K-18 students and teachers. We as a geoscience community do not understand the skills and assets of our own scientific researchers and educators.

The purpose of the Geo-Cyberlearning Workshop is to examine the components in existence in terms of NSF programs, datasets, and users. We need to understand the techniques and issues for how and why K-18 teachers, faculty, and students use the data, or what the barriers are for not utilizing databases resulting from NSF-funded projects. We will explore points of collaboration and find methods to make the audiences work together and be sustainable.
