Calling Pilot Testers
Are you interested in using the Seismic Hazards or Volcanic Hazards curriculum in your classroom? We are looking for volunteers to test out the modules with their students! If you are interested, go to learn.concord.org/geocode and click the "Apply Now" link at the bottom of the page. Or follow this link to signup to be a pilot tester
The modules will be available for use starting in the Fall 2021 semester. The modules include the five activity curriculum, a Teacher Edition, Pre- and Post-tests, the Class Dashboard, and much more!
The purpose of this webinar is to:
- Provide an overview of the GeoCode project and its goals.
- Discuss how GPS data can be used by students in the classroom to investigate land movement
- Demo the GeoCoder model and some of its features
- Provide hands-on experience with block coding in the GeoCode curriculum
- Share pilot testing results from an implementation completed during the pandemic.
Duration: 1 hour
Format: Presentations will take place through a Zoom Meeting screen-sharing session. The webinar will be recorded.
