Education with links to the Sea

Join us for this exciting Learning Circle "Education with links to the Sea" with a strong focus on Ocean Literacy.

We have a wonderful panel of presenters, discussing a number of topics including:

  • A short history of the development of Ocean Literacy in the USA.
  • Ocean Literacy on the international scene.
  • Why Ocean Literacy is important to Australian learners and links with Australian curriculum.
  • Examples of Ocean Literacy in Australia.
  • Links between Ocean Literacy and Seaweek (Seaweek 2018 = OL Principle 3).
  • AUSMAP, the Australian microplastics assessment project.
  • Experiencing Marine Sanctuaries and 360 VR immersive marine experiences.
  • Where to next? How do we coordinate our efforts? What other resources do teachers want/need?
