Ocean Institute: Deep Dive into Data | Online Course

  • This event has passed.

March 1 - March 31

Now more than ever, digital skills and data literacy are in high demand, particularly in the marine technology sector. The Deep Dive into Data program, created by COVE, provides engaging tutorials and activities to support junior and secondary level school teachers in understanding the use of data and coding in classrooms.

During this virtual online course offered throughout the month of March, teachers will become familiar with a curriculum designed to pair marine technology and real-time data collected from the ocean. This course touches on a variety of science and math learning outcomes that will foster critical thinking, data analyses, and interpretation that can be taken back to your classrooms. The activities provided will allow your students to dive into ocean data exploration through group activities and coding tasks, to navigate real-world situations using creative approaches and build valuable skills used in marine sector.

Once you complete the online course, you will be mailed a lab kit (valued at $300) to implement into your teachings and allow students to explore ocean acidification. Optional virtual office hours will be held weekly in March so you can drop in if you need any assistance working through the course or have questions regarding the coding tutorials.

More information will be provided by the facilitators upon registration.
