- The Ecoplexity website
The Ecoplexity website contains tools used in our teacher courses that allow the user to investigate patterns and structures of ecosystems first-hand. Various pages provide assistance in the development of a research question, selecting a protocol, developing a Student Portal to facilitate implementation of a project in the classroom, and links to scientific journals. Other pages allow users to learn more about the two-week teacher professional development workshops including research conducted while in the field and how to translate this new knowledge to students. Other sections of the ecoplexity website are devoted to different aspects of ecosystem modeling and use of qualitative conceptual models. For examples, please visit the website.
