Digital Library for Earth System Education
Entry ID: DLESE
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE) is a distributed
community effort involving educators, students, and scientists working together
to improve the quality, quantity, and efficiency of teaching and learning about
the Earth system at all levels.

DLESE supports Earth system science education by providing:

- Access to high-quality collections of educational resources
- Access to Earth data sets and imagery, including the tools and interfaces
that enable their effective use in educational settings
- Support services to help educators and learners effectively create, use, and
share educational resources
- Communication networks to facilitate interactions and collaborations across
all dimensions of Earth system education

DLESE resources include electronic materials for both teachers and learners,
such as lesson plans, maps, images, data sets, visualizations, assessment
activities, curriculum, online courses, and much more. Sponsored by the
National Science Foundation, DLESE is being designed, built, and governed by
community members from around the country. To this end, the DLESE Steering
Committee has developed the DLESE Strategic Plan.
