Cloud Protocols Online Teaching Module
The interactive online teaching module was designed for teachers and trainers, but can be adapted to other audiences. This new approach explores the science content behind cloud and contrail identification, simulates taking protocol measurements, demonstrates data entry, and data analysis as well as provides practical information about inquiry-based classroom implementation. The online teaching module takes about 30 minutes to complete and is an example of modules being developed for all GLOBE protocols.
The Cloud Protocols Online Teaching Module requires the free Flash Player 7 and an Internet browser that is compatible with Flash Player 7 to view the module.
Use this online refresher to renew your knowledge about taking cloud and contrail observations with your students!
