PBS Teachers and Classroom 2.0 are delighted to have Jean-Michel Cousteau, famed explorer, environmentalist, educator, filmmaker, and executive producer and host of the PBS series JEAN-MICHEL COUSTEAU: OCEAN ADVENTURES as our guest for "Diving into the Digital World of Marine Science," the next webinar in the PBS Teachers LIVE! series. Please mark your calendars for Monday, May 4 at 8 p.m. EDT for this upcoming free webinar.

In this webinar, renowned ocean explorer Jean-Michel Cousteau will discuss the importance of educating young people about the ocean and the vital role of teachers in inspiring students to become stewards of the environment. Joining him will be expedition team member and education associate Holly Lohuis and Andrea Swensrud, education and outreach coordinator for the PBS series JEAN-MICHEL COUSTEAU: OCEAN ADVENTURES. Webinar participants will learn ways to effectively integrate multimedia into the classroom to help teach important scientific concepts including adaptations, ecosystems, and human impact on the environment. Participants will learn how to access the free Web-original videos, standards-based lesson plans, in-depth articles and online games available on the Ocean Adventures website. The webinar is geared towards 5th through 8th grade teachers, but the ideas and activities presented are easily adaptable to other grade levels.

In April 2009, Jean-Michel Cousteau returns with two new expeditions in the PBS signature environmental series JEAN-MICHEL COUSTEAU: OCEAN ADVENTURES (pbs.org/kqed/oceanadventures), produced by KQED in San Francisco and Ocean Futures Society. Cousteau and his team of explorers travel to the farthest reaches of the globe to learn the latest discoveries about two of the most appealing marine mammals on earth, beluga and orca whales. He and his acclaimed diving team, which includes his son, Fabien, his daughter, Celine, as well as his collaborator, Holly Lohuis, explore a thrilling panorama of natural beauty and learn about efforts to protect these whales from the threats posed by human activities and climate change. Combining science and discovery with expert storytelling and astonishing high-definition footage, the new specials premiere nationally in April with the one-hour “Sea Ghosts” (beluga whales) and the two-hour “Call of the Killer Whale” (orcas) (check local listings).

Date: Monday, May 4th, 2009

Time: 5pm Pacific / 8pm Eastern / 12am GMT (next day) (international times here)
