Beginning from recent national education reports and planning documents from IRIS, UNAVCO and Earthscope, this webinar will focus on key facility capabilities that will strengthen educational impact.

Participants in this webinar will synthesize the guidance from recent education reports that bears on the ability of the SAGE/GAGE facilities to strengthen broader educational impacts. We will discuss key ideas from reports such as Engage to Excel (PCAST report), the Next Generation Science Standards, STEM Learning is Everywhere, and Expanding Underrepresented Minority Participation as well as reports and guiding documents from Earthscope, IRIS and UNAVCO relating to their education and outreach activities. What do we learn from recent education reports that should shape our thinking about the facilities?

Michael Wysession and Dave Mogk will provide opening overviews and perspectives followed by group discussion and synthesis.
