The Smithsonian Museum of National History's Sant Ocean Hall has been working with the design production company Funny Garbage in the development of an online resource dedicated to scientific information about the ocean. A portion of The Ocean Portal site will serve as a resource where K-12 educators can visit for assistance in developing curricula about ocean related topics.To ensure we develop a useful tool, we are recruiting educators who teach life and earth sciences to take an online survey on how they use teachers' resources on the Internet.
We hope to reach as many teachers as possible in as many geographic locations as possible. The survey should take between 10 and 15 minutes to complete and is available now through September 4th. Feedback from your community would be the very group that we hope to serve with rich and useful resources. Please help circulate this email to educators who would be interested in using this type of resource.
