AXA Coral Live 2018

For the third year running, Jamie Buchanan-Dunlop, Digital Explorer Director, engaged students worldwide with the wonders of coral reefs and the human impact on these fragile ecosystems.

From 29 October through 09 November, AXA Coral Live connected students globally and enabled them to discuss science and geography with Digital Explorer field education team and marine scientists live streaming from CARMABI Research Centre from the island of Curaçao in the Caribbean.

Broadcasted via Digital Explorer’s YouTube Channel, classes participated in 30 age-differentiated webcasts:

  • Live investigations: These were practical activities guided by the expedition team and they were replicated in the classroom simultaneously. Our offer included: the coral reef zone, coral food chain, coral feeding, incredible edible polyp, and ocean acidification.
  • Ask-Me Anything: Bring on the challenge! Jamie, Ellie and the members of CARMABI answered questions from young people from around world. These sessions triggered great online and class discussions about marine science topics, geography, environmentalism, climate change and life as science communicators.

For best user experience, the step-by-step Coral Live Teacher Guidance provided lesson ideas, tips for using edtech and class preps for live-link ups.
