THE CLIMATE LITERACY AND ENERGY AWARENESS NETWORK (CLEAN) PROJECT
The Climate Literacy and Energy Awareness Network (CLEAN, http://cleanet.org) is working to provide this support through 1) the CLEAN Collection – reviewed educational climate and energy science resources, 2) pedagogical support for teaching climate and energy science that includes an Educator Framework for Teaching Climate and Energy Science for K-12 teachers across the curriculum based on the Next Generation Science Standards: Practices, Crosscutting Concepts, and Core Ideas, and 3) facilitating a professionally diverse community of climate and energy literacy stakeholders called the CLEAN Network, to share and leverage their efforts to extend their reach and effectiveness.
In this presentation, we will provide an overview of the CLEAN Portal. This will include:
- the CLEAN Collection of 650+ resources (activities, videos, visualizations, and short demonstrations and experiments) reviewed for scientific accuracy, pedagogical effectiveness, and technical quality;
- the Educator Framework for Teaching Climate and Energy Science; and
- a summary of the activities of the CLEAN Network including preliminary results from a new survey of climate change education stakeholders aimed at understanding the evolving make up and needs of this community to enable extending their reach and impact.
