Climate Toolkit: A Resource Manual for Science and Action - Version 2.0
Conditional Remix & Share Permitted
CC BY-NC
Rating
0.0 stars

The Climate Toolkit is a resource manual designed to help the reader navigate the complex and perplexing issue of climate change by providing tools and strategies to explore the underlying science. As such it contains a collection of activities that make use of readily available on-line resources developed by research groups and public agencies. These include web-based climate models, climate data archives, interactive atlases, policy papers, and “solution” catalogs. Unlike a standard textbook, it is designed to help readers do their own climate research and devise their own perspective rather than providing them with a script to assimilate and repeat.

The CMSD #GoOpen journey began about a year and a half ago, and was prompted by the realization that our outdated textbooks were no longer adequate to meet the needs of each student and to ensure that every student in our district succeeds. CMSD realized that not only did these textbooks fail to meet the standards necessary for the curriculum, but also that there are more beneficial ways to invest funds when running on a tight budget.

CUSD was motivated to #GoOpen because the learner has changed. “Students have a pervasive mindset of personalization. Personalization of clothing, communication devices, and food has become expected in the marketplace…so why not in our schools?” acknowledged Superintendent Dr. Jeffrey Felix. Students today demand to have their instruction personalized, made to order, just the way they like it.

Creating Active Schools Framework: driving system change to improve children’s physical activity
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

This resource is a video abstract of a research paper created by Research Square on behalf of its authors. It provides a synopsis that's easy to understand, and can be used to introduce the topics it covers to students, researchers, and the general public. The video's transcript is also provided in full, with a portion provided below for preview:

"Regular physical activity is important for children’s physical and mental wellbeing and academic performance. Unfortunately, too many children are not moving enough. Globally, 50% of children don’t meet the internationally-recognized target of 60 minutes of daily moderate-to-vigorous physical activity. This rises to four out of five children in westernised, high-income countries. While schools systems and teachers can play a central role in providing high-quality physical activity, and transform this statistic. At present, little guidance exists on what a true whole-school physical activity approach should look like. Now, researchers, policymakers and practitioners from the UK have laid the groundwork for getting there. This is the Creating Active Schools Framework. Using experience-based co-design, fifty school experts recently gathered to co-create a comprehensive whole-school physical activity framework..."

The rest of the transcript, along with a link to the research itself, is available on the resource itself.

Data availability, reusability, and analytic reproducibility: evaluating the impact of a mandatory open data policy at the journal Cognition
Unrestricted Use
CC BY
Rating
0.0 stars

Access to data is a critical feature of an efficient, progressive and ultimately self-correcting scientific ecosystem. But the extent to which in-principle benefits of data sharing are realized in practice is unclear. Crucially, it is largely unknown whether published findings can be reproduced by repeating reported analyses upon shared data (‘analytic reproducibility’). To investigate this, we conducted an observational evaluation of a mandatory open data policy introduced at the journal Cognition. Interrupted time-series analyses indicated a substantial post-policy increase in data available statements (104/417, 25% pre-policy to 136/174, 78% post-policy), although not all data appeared reusable (23/104, 22% pre-policy to 85/136, 62%, post-policy). For 35 of the articles determined to have reusable data, we attempted to reproduce 1324 target values. Ultimately, 64 values could not be reproduced within a 10% margin of error. For 22 articles all target values were reproduced, but 11 of these required author assistance. For 13 articles at least one value could not be reproduced despite author assistance. Importantly, there were no clear indications that original conclusions were seriously impacted. Mandatory open data policies can increase the frequency and quality of data sharing. However, suboptimal data curation, unclear analysis specification and reporting errors can impede analytic reproducibility, undermining the utility of data sharing and the credibility of scientific findings.
