Institute of environmental physics, University of Tartu
Coordinator of the EU Socrates/Minerva project “e-LSEE”
Comfortable management of diverse student groups
Chance to increase students number, etc
Flexibility of learning time and place
Accessibility of courses in appreciated universities, etc
Less organisational advantages at school
Teachers are weakly motivated(absence of learning materials, technical problems, weak appreciation from administration, achievements non-measurable in traditional assessment system, etc )
Driving force for e-learning, are students, they can motivate teachers with their excitement and satisfaction
Better content and methodology can drive e-learning in traditional schoolODL at universities vs. e-learning at school
new tools, traditional methods - in the future will not be considered as e-learning
Internet learning attractive for students, challenging for teachers.
Motivation and preparation of teachers important!
Numerous sites with meteorological data, soil and water temperatures, cloud cover, solar radiation, UV exposures, stratospheric ozone, land cover, surface albedo, air pollution, vulcanoes, hurricances, etc.
perfect resource for science, math, environmental and ICT education
network of over 10000 schools in 103 countries, led by NASA,NSF, EPA, U.S. State Department , supported by governments of partner countries
in math and science
drawing and reading graphs,
linking numerical and visual information
reading scales and color legends,
understanding coordinate systems
performing database operations, etc.
specific ICT skills
Working with browsers
Searching for specified items
Working with several windows
Downloading and saving information, etc
difficulties for curricula teaching
GLOBE Web site too large, search complicated
Language barrier hinders younger pupils
Data irregularly distributed by schools and countries
Links to curricula not clearly established
few experiences and training on building the e-learning lesson plan and methodologyGLOBE Internet resources are useful for student research projects and e-learning of different subjects
Analysis of data collected by students themselves form their awareness and attitudes on Earth environment
Collaboration of teachers from
EE, CZ, NL, NO, PL, UK
to promote e- learning of science,
math and environment in traditional school

THE EARTH’S ORBIT
WHERE YOU ARE ON THE EARTH
CHANGES OVER TIME
Interactive Internet learning in traditional school is weakly developed yet, but the issue is worth of more attention:
For its’ further propagation it would be useful:
GLOBE teachers imlementing the e-LSEE project are the first adapters in schools, creating and testing the Internet-based e-learning materials and methodologies
