Conditions of Use:

There are a wide range of interactions between 'science' and 'the public'. Examples range from visiting a museum, or indulging in a science-related hobby, to reading a newspaper article about a breakthrough in the techniques of therapeutic cloning. Many of these interactions could be said to be 'passive'. This unit explores the practicalities of the public becoming more 'active' in the direction of science practice by 'two-way' interactions, with dialogue taking place between science and some part of 'the public',

CURSO DE AGENTES MIRINS DISSEMINADORES DA CIDADANIA AMBIENTAL
Rating

Produto Técnico do Programa de Pós-Graduação em Rede Nacional para o Ensino das Ciências Ambientais - Pólo Universidade Federal de Sergipe.

O curso de Agentes Mirins Disseminadores da Cidadania Ambiental é um instrumento para o ensino das ciências ambientais, que versa o envolvimento dos participantes na construção coletiva do processo de ensino-aprendizagem, unindo a teoria-prática acerca dos conhecimentos apreendidos que são pautados nas questões ambientais. O seu desígnio principal é fomentar a sensibilização dos sujeitos para a participação no contexto da sociedade, questionando atitudes, valores, além de propor novas práticas acerca da problemática ambiental.
Trata-se de instrumento educacional para o estimulo a reflexão crítica, bem como, fomentar nos sujeitos a atuação participante e protagonista das problemáticas que englobem ilimitadas realidades. Assim sendo, o público alvo abarca os estudantes e os membros da comunidade ribeirinha, compreendendo que os conteúdos trabalhados podem ser adaptados e desenvolvidos dentro de infinitas realidades de interesse local e global.
Nesse sentido, vislumbramos que os sujeitos ao participarem da construção do vídeo documentário e assistirem ao seu produto final – o vídeo documentário, cuja dedicação em pensar e articular cada etapa, fomente reflexões acerca do que foi trabalhado durante todo processo de construção, sendo assim, capazes de disseminar de forma potente a mensagem de sensibilização das problemáticas socioambientais que precisão ser sanadas no lugar onde vivem. Versará também, provocar impacto visual e emocional nos participantes, pois, na atualidade é comum, os meios de comunicação e as escolas na divulgação e nas análises dos problemas tragam diversas realidades em escalas distantes das vivenciadas no espaço social dos sujeitos, porém assistir a sua realidade fará com que os envolvidos se sintam parte do problema, e posteriormente partir em busca por soluções para sanar as problemáticas encontradas, aproximando aquele que fala daquele que assiste.

Vídeo Documentário construído durante o curso de Agentes Mirins Disseminadores da Cidadania Ambiental por alunos e alunas da Escola Municipal Barquinho Amarelo, localizada no povoado São Braz, Nossa Senhora do Socorro, Sergipe.

Cartography and Visualization
Conditions of Use:
Remix and Share

Maps capture the power of place. A well-designed map can stoke our imagination, helping us to understand how a place looks or feels. Maps serve two roles. First, maps facilitate visual communication where knowns are presented to map readers. Second, maps permit visual thinking where insights into patterns and trends in spatial data are explored. In GEOG 486, Cartography & Visualization, you will learn and apply cartographic theory creating appropriately designed maps. You will learn how to associate the visual variables to symbolize types of spatial data. This process creates an appropriate visual hierarchy that conveys an informational hierarchy about the underlying message. Thus, techniques in map design will be applied to produce, evaluate, and critique reference and thematic maps.
