I am hearing more and more conversations center around "bundling," particularly when it comes to NGSS ( Next Generation Science Standards ). Sometimes, in my GLOBE world, it is a conversation around bundling the protocols together. I know that some teachers already do this when they take students outside for field investigations. In my email clean-out, I found this little gem that I thought I'd share. In 2012, the GLOBE Annual Meeting in St. Paul, Minnesota included two investigation questions for fieldwork. To answer the questions, the participants used several protocols to collect...

In an earlier blog, I referred to Elaine Reese, a child psychologist who measured emerging narrative identities of 40 month old children. The validity of her study is corroborated by other researchers and I am satisfied. I therefore direct my task to compiling best practices of ERE and to suggest settings that can lead to ERE events with GLOBE content. My hope is that parents will imagine the applicability of one or more of these settings, make them happen, and share their success stories for other parents to emulate. This blog shall serve to chronicle community action in...

Before the L.A. GLOBE Conference in 2015, I sent a request to Gwynne Shotwell for a mini-learning expedition to the Space X HQ in Hawthorne. The HQ could only take a small group and it included the GLOBE Africa Coordinator, a GLOBE Japan Partner and Trainer, a GLOBE Japan teacher, GLOBE students from San Diego and their parents.  Since then GLOBE training in Okinawa focused on Integrated One Day Atmospheric Measurements and the Cloud Cover Protocol, using the app GLOBE Observer. Trainees are introduced to the satellites that measure clouds from above and that we...

Are you taking GLOBE water quality measurements as part of the ENSO Student Research Campaign? If so, please consider joining the new GLOBE Water Quality Collaboration Group (GWQCG) . Led by Bob Connick, GLOBE schools from across the world are taking water quality measurements that help explore one of the ENSO Campaign's Guiding Investigative Questions, "What is the quality of water in our environment?" By learning all about the water quality measurements in a local setting, one can learn just how these local measurements helps us understand the global picture of water...
