NSF: Earth & Environment Classroom Resources

NSF: Earth & Environment Classroom Resources
https://www.nsf.gov/news/classroom/earth-environ.jsp

The Classroom Resources section of the National Science Foundation website is extensive and impressive. Take, for instance, this collection of Earth & Environment Classroom Resources. Here educators will discover links to 16 different resources, most of which have been culled from the National Science Digital Library (NSDL). Notable resources include the Earth & Environment Research Overview, a site that explains the important work that scientists are doing on the feedback loop between how humans impact the environment and how the environment, in turn, affects human communities. The material here ranges from K-12 to higher education. For instance, while college instructors may be interested in the Science Education Resource Center at Carleton College, an organization that works to improve undergraduate science education through projects that focus on faculty support, elementary school teachers may prefer Geography4Kids, which helps younger children explore the earth through engaging activities. Indeed, this list of more than a dozen resources has a little something for everyone. This will be added to Education and Academic Resources Subject Tracer™.

The Net Data Directory is a free, publicly accessible database of information on different sources of data about the Internet. The directory is intended to make finding helpful quantitative data about a broad range of Internet-related topics—broadband, cybersecurity, freedom of expression, and more—easier for researchers, policymakers, journalists, and the public. Users can search, sort, and filter records within this database to identify datasets relevant to their work. The vast majority of datasets within the directory are themselves open and publicly available. Records in the directory include the name of the data source, a short description of the available data, and a link. Data sources are tagged both by geographic coverage (including global, regional, and country-level tags) and by topic (such as broadband, cybersecurity, and social media).
