Digital Water Education Library
Entry ID: DWEL
[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: The Digital Water Education Library (DWEL) is a thematic collection focusing on
the science, economics and policy issues of water. As an educational tool it is designed to facilitate learning about all aspects of water in the Earth system. Primary audiences include K-12 and informal education. This collection is intended for dissemination via the Digital Library for Earth System Education (DLESE, http://www.dlese.org ), and the National Science Digital Library (NSDL, http://www.nsdl.org ). The DWEL collection supports science education standards and inquiry-based learning and has been created by a select and diverse group of practicing educators to ensure excellence and relevance to a wide range of learning environments.

The scope of the DWEL collection is water in the Earth system, with particular
emphasis on interdisciplinary topics that integrate science, policy and
economics. The collection seeks resources that bring exemplary water related
resources into classrooms or other learning sites, and which demonstrate the
application of science to solving real world problems. The collection favors
resources that support the teaching, learning and assessment of core
water-related concepts and issues, promote inquiry into diverse aspects of the
Earth system, and align with science education standards. The collection also
favors resources that are well-documented, easy to use, bug-free, motivational
for learners, pedagogically effective, scientifically accurate, and which
foster mastery of important scientific and mathematical understandings and
technology skills.
