Title: Ocean Literacy Courses
Url: https://literacy.ocean.org
Publisher: Ocean Wise
Description: The world's oceans are enormously influential for life on Earth (both human and otherwise), but many people do not fully understand or appreciate the complexities of oceans and their impact on human lives. To help address this, the non-profit organization Ocean Wise has created several online ocean literacy courses that may be of interest to educators, students, and the generally curious. These comprehensive courses are based on the Ocean Literacy Framework, a standards-aligned educational framework developed collaboratively by U.S. scientists, educators, and government agencies. Visitors will find three interactive, self-guided courses for students grades 3-6, 7-9, and 10-12, each course offering a how-to manual, multiple lessons, and seven colorful badges. In addition to the student courses, Ocean Wise has also created an Educator Resource Library to help teachers learn how to integrate ocean literacy into their classrooms. Access to these courses is free with email registration, and links to additional ocean literacy resources are also provided. Ocean Wise is led by Lasse Gustavsson, its president and chief executive officer, and headquartered at Canada's renowned Vancouver Aquarium.
