Farmed in the EU - School Project - Learning about European Aquaculture - European Commission

Farmed in the EU - School Project - Learning about European Aquaculture - European Commission | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

It may be the fastest growing sector in food production worldwide, but aquaculture, or fish farming, remains surprisingly unknown to many outside of the industry.

The “Farmed in the EU” school project has been designed to raise awareness of the aquaculture sector among Europe’s teenagers (12-18 years old). The project will bring students closer to fish farming and find out how it affects their local community. They will explore its role in food production and in preserving the environment. And they'll discover the different business and career opportunities aquaculture offers.

There is plenty of scope for student research and discovery of the different marine and freshwater fish, molluscs, crustaceans and algae which are produced and the different traditional and more modern production methods used.

The project is currently being piloted in 20 schools across 10 EU countries (Czech Republic, France, Germany, Greece, Hungary, Ireland, Italy, Poland, Spain, and the United Kingdom).

It’s back to school for aquaculture producers

A key part of the project is an on-site visit by a local fish farmer, providing students with the opportunity to talk to an expert, to build on their own research, and to take part in a fun and interactive visitor session.

A project kit has been designed for teachers to give you everything you need to help them plan and run the project, from the first lesson, through the visit, to the follow up activities which can focus on anything from Nutrition & Cooking, Science & Technology, or Communication and Arts.

John Bostock's insight:

Let's hope school teachers have the time and freedom to pick up this resource and find aquaculture producers ready to engage..

Aquaculture in action - NZ Educational Materials

Aquaculture in action - NZ Educational Materials | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

The New Zealand Government has created the Aquaculture in Action, web-based educational resource (Aquaculture Fact Sheet) to provide students with meaningful social sciences and science learning opportunities. 

 

To bring the fact sheets into the classroom the resource also includes a teacher’s guide and how the resource links to the New Zealand Curriculum.

 

The lesson plans were developed for Years 7 through 10.

The plans were created to assist teachers in helping students investigate and learn about aquaculture, as well as its impact on the economy and environment.

John Bostock's insight:

This is a great initiative and good example of how aquaculture can be brought into the classroom - just needs a mark 2 version with some video and real sea spray!

 

Incidentally, the links provided do not currently link directly so this may be better: http://www.fish.govt.nz/en-nz/Commercial/Aquaculture/Aquaculture+Archive/default.htm  (under Education).

Jim Phillips: On the Curation of Instructional Content (EDUCAUSE Review)

Jim Phillips: On the Curation of Instructional Content (EDUCAUSE Review) | Aqua-tnet | Scoop.it

Higher education institutions are prodigious content producers. Although there are long-standing policies in place to permit the curation of instructional content and of the transactional artifacts of the learning experience, librarians have traditionally concentrated more attention on research. This stance is quite justifiable given the massive amount of research data being generated today as a result of revised data-planning requirements by grant-funding agencies. However, with the tacit rules governing instruction and with market pressures rapidly evolving, has the time come for librarians to intentionally curate instructional content, in all its unwieldy diversity? And as we come to better understand the lasting value of data analytics, what would be the consequences of inaction?

John Bostock's insight:

A very interesting article that raises the issue of ownership and use of teaching materials. It suggests they may increasingly be held by commercial companies (such as Pearson OpenClass) unless university libraries take a more active role in curation, archiving and ensuring accessibility. Add into this debate the rise of Open Educational Resources and you have a very potent set of issues concerning for instance, power, academic freedom, intellectual property rights management, student and teacher privacy......
