Earth Observation BITS are, literally, bits and pieces of a bigger puzzle.
The bigger puzzle is the project of a "collaboration environment" about Earth Observation and Remote sensing intended as a resource for secondary school teachers and public understanding of science.
We are currently testing this solution creating a network of users along with gathering and sharing EO bits via blog, social networks and Google Drive.
We aim to encourage teachers participation in our project and collaboration to create tailored materials according to different class levels and lesson needs.
Feedbacks and suggestions about our project are welcome!
Stunning images, videos, animations, cloud-based re-usable presentations (Prezi), timelines (TimelineJS), podcasts, blog posts, tutorials, example data, maps, teaching materials and interesting news about Earth Observation and related global issues are all EO BITS.
You can start e-collaborating creating wonderful stuff.
To upload, share EO BITS and start e-collaborating please follow these steps:
Once access is given go to https://sites.google.com/site/earthobservationbits/.
To learn more about sharing and collaborating on Google Drive watch the following video.
