There are also two stand-alone webinar options that can be attended by both the K-12 and Higher Education community. All of the webinars will also be available on YouTube and linked to this page after the live event has ended.

This Code is a tool for educators, librarians, and authors to evaluate common
professional scenarios in which fair use can enable them to incorporate inserts,
including those protected by copyright, to create OER. It can provide groups
working on OER projects with a shared framework for evaluating and understanding
when and how to incorporate existing content to meet pedagogical needs

From Isotopes to Temperature: Working With A Temperature Equation
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

In this activity, students will use oxygen isotope values of two species of modern coral to reconstruct ambient water temperature over a four-year period. They use Microsoft Excel, or similar application, to create a spreadsheet of temperature values calculated from the isotope values of the corals by means of an algebraic equation. Students then use correlation and regression techniques to determine whether isotope records can be considered to be good proxies for records of past temperatures.

What is the fate of CO2 produced by fossil fuel combustion?
Read the Fine Print
Rating
0.0 stars

Students consider why the observed atmospheric CO2 increase rate is only ~60% of the CO2 loading rate due to fossil fuel combustion. They develop a box-model to simulate the atmospheric CO2 increase during the industrial era and compare it to the historic observations of atmospheric CO2 concentrations. The model is then used to forecast future concentrations of atmospheric CO2 during the next century.
