Abstract

The School of Rock Expedition utilized the unique opportunity of an at-sea professional development workshop during the school year to engage onshore audiences via an interactive expedition website. The website sought to connect students, teachers and the general public to the scientific drilling vessel JOIDES Resolution through various website components including a daily blog, a near real time video question and answer forum, inquiry-based mapping and weather data activities and online classroom activities and resources. The website was met with immediate success and informed program coordinators of the significant educational impact of ship-to-shore communications via the World Wide Web.
