CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

Este Guia Didático surgiu como produto da Dissertação de Mestrado do Programa de Pós-Graduação de Mestrado Profissional em Rede para o Ensino das Ciências Ambientais – PROFCIAMB, sob o Tema “APRENDENDO COM A ESCASSEZ: ALTERNATIVAS DE USO DA ÁGUA EM EIRUNEPÉ/AM” como atividade prática com os discentes do Ensino Médio do Instituto Federal de Educação, Ciência e Tecnologia do Amazonas, Campus Eirunepé sobre o abastecimento de água e como as famílias atuam na obtenção deste bem quando não fornecido adequadamente pelo Poder Público.
A construção do Guia Pedagógico surgiu a partir da necessidade dos discentes compreenderem a problemática da da água no mundo. Esta compreensão deve ter como marco inicial, a percepção sobre o abastecimento de água na cidade onde os mesmos moram, compreendendo as condições de captação, abastecimento e uso da água pelas suas famílias. A partir do “local” o discente será capaz de compreender o contexto da água sob o aspecto global.

Energy policy is typically evolutionary as opposed to revolutionary. We can look to historical policies to understand how we've inherited the policies governing our energy use today. But looking backward only tells us part of the story. In the face of climate change, we need to look ahead and instead envision a more revolutionary change to our energy systems and the policies that govern them. This class takes you on that journey to energy policies past, present, and future. We look at the political realities of addressing climate change at various scales of governance and work together to craft our own ideal scenarios of what a responsible energy future will be.

Rating

This case study describes a practical exercise developed for students in the School of Geography and Environmental Science at Monash University. The exercise is based around simple bioclimatic modelling techniques and designed for first-year university students of biogeography, ecology and climatology. It incorporates aspects of past, present and future climates and their impact on species distributions, particularly in Victoria, but could be easily modified to suit any part of Australia. The practical exercise has three main parts: the first is on animal distributions under current and future climates; the second concerns plant distributions in the past and present; and the third part looks at how rare and endangered species may respond to future climate change in alpine environments.

A dissertação intitulada “Educação Científica: Guia Didático para elaboração de projetos sustentáveis no ensino das Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação”, objetiva desenvolver projetos mediante Feiras de Ciências, realizadas por estudantes da Educação Profissional da área das Tecnologias e da Informação e Comunicação, buscando soluções responsáveis frente às questões socioambientais. A questão de pesquisa a ser respondida neste trabalho é: Como fomentar a Educação Científica mediante Feiras de Ciências realizadas por estudantes da Educação Profissional da área das Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação de modo que possibilite aos estudantes a elaboração de projetos que busquem soluções responsáveis socioambientalmente? Esta pesquisa de abordagem quali-quantitativa toma como inspiração o estudo exploratório, descritivo e escolhe como caminho metodológico a pesquisa de campo no Centro Estadual de Educação Profissional em Lauro de Freitas/Bahia, entre os anos de 2017 e 2018. A fim de alcançar o objetivo da pesquisa, optou-se pelo desenvolvimento de metodologia própria, baseada na ênfase do protagonismo estudantil, que buscou impulsionar estudantes à participação em eventos científicos, como as Feiras de Ciências e Tecnologias. Os sujeitos envolvidos no processo da pesquisa foram os estudantes do Ensino Médio Profissional do Centro Estadual de Educação Profissional em Tecnologia da Informação e Comunicação – CEEP-TIC, localizado no município de Lauro de Freitas - Bahia. Apresentamos como produto educacional da pesquisa um Guia Didático para desenvolvimento de projetos sustentáveis no ensino das Tecnologias da Informação e Comunicação e a demonstração dos resultados dos projetos apresentados nas Feiras de Ciências Escolares do referido Centro. A partir das análises das informações coletadas em campo, a pesquisa apontou que instigar à Educação Científica na Educação Profissional é uma ferramenta essencial na promoção da educação voltada para as resoluções de problemas práticos do dia a dia e, na formação do senso crítico dos estudantes, os ajudando a ir além do senso comum, em busca de soluções. A pesquisa aponta que as Feiras de Ciências Escolares são compreendidas como práticas pedagógicas formativas para promover a Educação Científica que substitui a ênfase na capacidade de fazer, comum na formação do estudante da escola técnica-profissionalizante, para a capacidade de prever eventos e solucionar problemas. Neste sentido, perspectivamos que este guia sirva de referência para que professores, estudantes e outras pessoas interessadas possam desenvolver atividades de iniciação científica ou de pesquisas, ou projetos socioambientais em suas escolas.

Only Sharing Permitted
CC BY-NC-ND
Rating

O presente livro é resultado do mestrado profissional do Programa de pós-graduação em Rede Nacional para Ensino das Ciências Ambientais (PROFCIAMB) da Universidade Federal do Pará. A pesquisa foi desenvolvida através de um curso de capacitação sobre a importância ambiental e socioeconômica dos sistemas de produção de cacau ofertado aos alunos do curso técnico em agropecuária da Escola Comunitária Casa Familiar Rural de Uruará – CFRU. Durante esse curso, notou-se a dificuldade dos alunos em buscar informações sobre a cacauicultura e as principais árvores que são utilizadas como sombreamento e a relevância desse sistema produtivo. O livro tem como público alvo os alunos do curso técnico em agropecuária das Escolas Casa Familiar Rural – CFRs, professores, profissionais de extensão rural e produtores rurais.

O primeiro capítulo trata do conhecimento sobre as principais práticas de manejo nas lavouras cacaueiras. Para fundamentá-lo, foram utilizadas publicações de autores vinculados a Comissão Executiva de Planejamento da Lavoura Cacaueira – CEPLAC, que pesquisam sobre a cacauicultura há mais de 50 anos no Brasil.

Durante o curso de capacitação, foi realizado um levantamento das principais espécies que são utilizadas pelos produtores do município de Uruará como sombreamento das lavouras de cacau. Além disso, houve um questionamento aos produtores sobre a importância ambiental e socioeconômica das espécies plantadas. Foi realizada a identificação das espécies encontradas e as 20 mais abundantes foram selecionadas para compor o capítulo 2 desse livro.

O segundo capítulo apresenta 20 espécies florestais nativas da Amazônia para compor o sistema de produção de cacau, tendo como principal função o sombreamento. Além disso, informações são fornecidas para que os produtores possam complementar a renda da família com a venda de produtos como: frutos, sementes, óleos e madeira. Além disso, para aumentar a produção, informações como diversificar as
espécies no sistema de produção de cacau, trazer recursos para a propriedade como madeira para construção civil e rural na propriedade, alimento para a família e animais de criação, e uso de plantas medicinais são fornecidos. Em vista para proteger, conservar e aumentar a abundância das espécies nativas que são utilizadas no sombreamento do cacau, informações sobre risco de extinção e função ecológica também foi fornecida.

O livro possui função didática e pode ser utilizado nos cursos voltados à agricultura e produção cacaueira. Também servem de apoio e conhecimento para professores, profissionais na área de agropecuária e produtores de cacau que busquem ampliar seus conhecimentos.

Much of the general population believes that the energy sources we depend on are perpetual. While people believe that energy use is the culprit for environmental damage, they are not aware of the methods and principles by which energy conversion devices operate. This course will provide you with knowledge and information on the main operating principles of devices/appliances in common use and will help you in making energy efficient and economical choices. The objective of the course is to expose you to energy efficiency in day to day life in order to save money and energy and thereby protect the environment. I hope the information in this course will help you become an environmentally-responsible individual of this Global Village.

Energy policy sits at the crossroads of science and policy. And now, energy and climate policy are inextricably linked; the policies we choose have very real consequences for our climate. This intersection of science and policy is chaotic and bustles with activity motivated by various competing (and conflicting) interests and factors. We must understand the motivations driving them and bridge the divides between our reliance on fossil fuels and our need to transition to less carbon-intensive and renewable alternatives. While the science and math behind these problems is often fairly straightforward, the politics and behavioral changes are not. Come stand at this busy intersection with us as we navigate toward progressive climate policy alternatives at all scales of governance!

In 2008, Dr. Michelle Soupir joined the Agriculture and Biosystems Engineering department at Iowa State University.  The goal of Dr. Soupir’s research program is to conduct basic research to move us toward more sustainable water systems.  Dr. Soupir uses lab- and field-based research projects to monitor the occurrence, fate and movement of nutrients and microorganisms in surface and drainage water.The information, activities and assessments included in these curriculum modules aim to tell a story.  This storyline will help students learn the basics of denitrification and the nitrogen cycle to make sense of our anchor phenomenon - the Gulf Dead Zone.  Students will learn that local conditions and actions can have a significant impact on global issues.  The activities with which students will engage constitute a meaningful pathway to understanding and are not intended to be used in isolation.  As you make plans for how these modules will be used, carefully consider the connections and interdependence of the activities, which make it difficult to separate the activities and is not advised.Each module consists of two or three activities.  Each activity provides opportunities to develop and use specific elements of the Next Generation Science Standards (NGSS) science and engineering skills and practice(s) to make sense of phenomena and/or to design solutions to problems.  They also provide students with the chance to use conceptual understanding that spans scientific disciplines and develop deep understanding of core ideas and content.

Human-caused climate change represents one of the great environmental challenges of our time. As it is inextricably linked with issues of energy policy, a familiarity with the fundamentals of climate change is critical for those looking to careers in the energy field. To appreciate the societal, environmental, and economic implications of policies governing greenhouse gas emissions, one must understand the basic underlying science. METEO 469 serves to lay down the fundamental scientific principles behind climate change and global warming. A firm grounding in the science is then used as a launching point for exploring issues involving climate change impacts and mitigation.

What factors lead to a natural disaster? What causes a famine? Why do cities flood? According to a recent article in The Atlantic, Houston's flooding during the 2017 Hurricane Harvey was primarily caused by impervious pavement which prevents the absorption of water into the land. This example illustrates how nature and society are interlinked, which is the main focus of Geography 30, Penn State's introductory course to nature-society geography. In addition to examining the linkages between human development and natural hazards, this course will also explore human society's connection to food systems, climate change, urbanization and biodiversity. The course will also cover topics of ethics and decision making in order to help students evaluate the tradeoffs of these interconnections.

Have you seen a Clean Coal baseball cap? In the challenge to meet soaring energy demand with limited resources, volatile issues like those related to the environment, national security and public health are often addressed outside of normal market transactions and are called externalities, or nonmarket factors. Stakeholders can act in resourceful ways to create a nonmarket environment that best serves their interest. A firm may challenge a law that makes it expensive or difficult to do business or compete with others, for example. An individual may organize a boycott of products or services that violate the individual's interests or principles--hey, don't buy from them! Nonmarket strategy in the energy sector is the subject of this engaging course.

Elementary Frameworks for Science and Integrated Subjects is a statewide Clime Time collaboration among ESD 123, ESD 105, and the Office of Superintendent of Public Instruction. Development of the Frameworks is in response to a need for research- based science lessons for elementary teachers that are integrated with English language arts, mathematics and other subjects such as social studies. The template for the Elementary Frameworks can serve as an organized, coherent and research-based roadmap for teachers in the development of their own NGSS aligned science lessons.  Lessons can also be useful for classrooms that have no adopted curriculum as well as to serve as enhancements for  current science curriculum. The EFSIS project brings together grade level teams of teachers to develop lessons or suites of lessons that are 1) focused on grade level Performance Expectations, and 2) leverage ELA and Mathematics Washington State Learning Standards.
