Welcome to teachers and students joining the November session from Ghana, Greece, Italy, Mexico, New Zealand, Romania, Spain, Slovenia, Sweden, Switzerland, the United States, and Venezuela. We look forward to receiving class data so that we can post it on the COMPARE page on the ISCFC website.
Please use this page to share your ideas regarding the ISCFC and teaching the world’s students about climate change education. You will also find many useful resources on the PARTICIPATE page of the ISCFC website. Please review the PICTORIAL KEY for the CF Calculator with your students prior to starting CF calculations.

Dear ISCFC September 2012 teachers.

Thank you to you and your students for a session full of thought-provoking conversations!

If you still have not submitted your class data, it is not too late! See the ISCFC Teacher Participation page (external link) for forms and instructions.
http://footprint.stanford.edu/participate_teachers.html

Once you submit your class data and you and your students take the online survey (recently mentioned to you by Pam over email), we will prepare certificates for your students.

Also, please feel free to post your final thoughts, impressions, suggestions here to improve future ISCFC sessions.

Best,
Jason

Hello everybody.
I’m Karine from Pessac near Bordeaux in France. I joined the discussions last year and am back this year with a new group of 17 16-17 year old students.
They calculated their carbon footprint and have been looking for information on environmental problems, the causes and solutions and are now ready to exchange with the students in the other countries.
We’ll connect tomorrow from 3 to 4 pm for a nice chat.
I do hope you’ll join us!
Take care
Karine

The first classes from the September 2012 ISCFC session have pins on the map !!

http://footprint.stanford.edu/compare.html

Welcome to: Michelle Hock and her AP & Intro Environmental Studies students from Sunlake High School in Land O Lakes, Florida, USA; Thomas Martinez (AP Bio), Marisa Abrams (AP Bio), Leah Bielski (Anatomy & Physiology) and Nick Scipione (Chemistry) and their students from Glenbard East High School in Lombard, Illinois, USA; and Elisabeth Childers and her Marine Biology students from Glenbard East High School in Union City, California, USA.

We also are excited to welcome back the CPIFP La Salle Santo Ángel school in Zaragoza, Spain, this time with ‘Science in the Modern World’ teacher Mariela Martínez de Jesús and her students. Bienvenidos!

In addition, we are extremely pleased to have returning teachers Tim Newman and his AP Biology Students from the Bishop O’Dowd School in Oakland CA USA, and Anna Johannsen who has moved to Sandnes, Norway, and now brings students from her Nature Sciences class at Gand Videregående Skule.

Which ISCFC September 2012 participating school will be next to have its pin on the map?

    Bob McCormick joins us from Stevenson School (Pebble Beach, CA USA) with his AP Environmental Students, and Karine Courredge is back with a new group of her English students from Lycée pape Clément (Pessac, France). Both schools now have updated map pins – c'est magnifique!

    And we warmly welcome Chris Briggs and his 'Environment and Ecology' class from Tinicum Art & Science High School (Ottsville, PAUSA)!

Welcome to all ISCFC teachers and students! Joining the September ISCFC are schools from Bangladesh, Brazil, France, Norway, Slovenia, Spain, Sweden, Switzerland, Taiwan, and the United States. Please send your data to Jason on the Excel spreadsheet on the PARTICIPATE page (link below) as soon as your students complete the CF Calculator. Encourage your students to join at least three ISCFC Learning Group discussions on the Einztein social learning network early in the project to help them get started. Please send us an informal group photo if you would like to have it posted on the ISCFC site.

Hi, My name is Cathy and I teach science at a high school in New Jersey. I just submitted my participation form for my AP Environmental Science class. Do we need to wait for the participation form to be approved before my students can begin calculating their carbon footprints?

I’m looking forward to having my students participate in the discussion.

    Dear Cathy- Welcome to the ISCFC and Einztein!

    You can have your students calculate their footprints anytime, but please note that we are currently improving a few things about the calculator, so if they use it now, they will use an older version. One thing we are improving is the emailing feature for receiving one's results.

    So, if it is just the same to you, I would recommend waiting for a week or so. But if this is the best time for you and your curriculum, then please go ahead and have your students use the calculator whenever is convenient. Using it now will make no difference to their actual footprint results.

    The new version of the calculator should be posted towards the end of this week. i will post a message in this forum when the new version is ready.

    Do you have the excel spreadsheet to compile your students' results once you receive them?

    Note that the discussions at Einztein won't actually begin until September 25, so we do suggest that you wait until then to introduce your students to Einztein.

    If you have any other questions, feel free to post them here, or use the private messaging feature at Einztein, which will notify me by email. To do this, click on my name or my picture at the top of this post. That will take you to my Learning Profile page. Click the “Contact” link at the top of that page and send me a message.

    Best

    Hi Jason,

    Thank you for your response. I can waiit until the end of the month to start this activity with my students. I was able to download all of the resources including the Excel spreadsheet.

    Thanks,

    Cathy
  • Jason Hodin Jason Hodin Sept. 25, 2012
    Dear Cathy, We posted a new version of the calculator (with a redesigned conclusion activity) on Friday last. My apologies for not letting you know sooner.
