EarthCube Education End-Users' Workshop

EarthCube is an NSF initiative to develop a national cyberinfrastructure which will give researchers and students easy access to earth data and models in a way that is intended to catalyze and facilitate interdisciplinary thinking and systems thinking, across institutional, spatial, and temporal boundaries. As input into the design of EarthCube, NSF sponsored a series of "end-user workshops," in which groups of potential EarthCube users were asked to define and articulate the needs of their communities. Our workshop convened scientist-educators, employers who wish to hire data-savvy graduates, data providers who wish to have students and teachers among their user communities, and technologists who develop tools and capabilities for visualizing and analyzing data. This project is collaborative with Scripps Institution of Oceanography and funded by the National Science Foundation (grant#1313866) to EDC.
