Live from the International Polar Year (IPY)!
  • Educators, Teachers
Live from the International Polar Year (IPY)!, transported students and the public to remote polar locations through live from the field calls and Internet presentations during the International Polar Year (2007-2009). Live from IPY! uses a simple online interface to support real-time presentations, audio, text chat, and when possible, video, as an interactive, web-based education resource. From isolated locations such as the Greenland Ice Sheet or a Coast Guard vessel navigating the Arctic Ocean, teachers and researchers in the polar regions interacted with students in real time. Whether communication was limited to a satellite phone or presenters had high speed Internet, Live from IPY events were successful because they were free and they relied on simple technology that could be adapted to different field and classroom environments.
