Hi Everyone,

    NSF has a solicitation out called Climate Change Education 
Partnerships - Phase II (
http://www.nsf.gov/funding/pgm_summ.jsp?pims_id=503465).  The CLEAN 
Pathway project (http://cleanet.org) was mentioned explicitly in the 
solicitation as a potential partner for CCEP - Phase II projects.   If any 
of you are involved with a CCEP-Phase II proposal I wanted to let you know 
about the services that CLEAN can provide those and any other climate 
change education project.  I am pasting the abstract that briefly 
describes these in below.  However, I gave a talk on the Climate Literacy 
Network (CLN) call on Jan 31 and the slides and audio recording of the 
presentation are posted on the CLN web page (
http://cleanet.org/dev/cln/telecon_schedule.html, from there scroll to 
Past 2012 Teleconference and click Show Notes for Jan 31 and you will see 
the abstract, slides, and audio recording).

  I would be interested in talking to any of you who are involved in a 
CCEP-II proposal to explore how CLEAN services can support your effort and 
to answer any of your questions.


Abstract from Jan 31 presentation

The CLEAN Pathway project http://cleanet.org was funded in 2009 by NSF 
with initial climate change education funding. This project has built a 
reviewed collection of existing educational resources, currently including 
learning activities, visualizations, videos, and short 
demonstrations/experiments that directly address the Climate Literacy 
Essential Principles and Energy Literacy Principles. In order to build 
this collection, a rigorous review process has been developed that 
addresses scientific accuracy, pedagogical effectiveness, and technical 
quality/ease of use. To facilitate the teaching of climate and energy 
science, the project has also developed virtual professional development 
venues for both undergraduate faculty and secondary level teachers.
These activities, along with other CLEAN activities and efforts, can be 
leveraged by climate change education proposals and currently funded 
projects to enhance their projects and expand the opportunities for 
partnerships and dissemination. In this presentation, we will provide an 
overview of the services that CLEAN can provide. Some of these include:
