Coral Oceans Live! 2015
In January 2015, Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop and members of the Catlin Seaview Survey travelled to the Coral Triangle to investigate its beautiful and fragile habitats and ecosystems, threats such as the impact of human activities, local conservation efforts and the future of the Coral Triangle.
How did schools get involved?
Catlin Group and Digital Explorer offered the opportunity for students to speak to a member of the Catlin Seaview Survey expedition in the Coral Triangle via Skype in the classroom. This engaging interactive experience live from Timor Leste allowed students to discover the importance of this unique ecosystem from the comfort of their classroom.
The Coral Oceans education event and accompanying classroom resources allows an innovative and engaging approach to educating young people.
Do take a look at the Coral Oceans resources which are also free to download and include booklets with structured lesson plans, activity and experiment sheets, posters and other related resources for both primary and secondary schools.
You can also use the interactive [DE] Media Zone to view videos and images from the expedition. The web app can be used in conjunction with the resources to provide an interactive learning experience.
