LiveFrom the Hubble Space Telescope

Teacher's Guide


Going On-line-an Educator's Primer

World Wide Web Resources

NASA's K-12 Internet Initiative has provided an extensive array of resources, available to those who have access to the World Wide Web, a graphical interface allowing easy links between computer resources regardless of their location. Participants need special software called a "Web browser," such as Netscape or Mosaic, as well as an Internet account supporting Web access. Once you are connected with our Web site, you will find the following resources:

  • Project News: Welcome, background files, recent updates
  • HST Team: Biographical sketches, Field Journals, related files
  • Video Broadcasts: Schedule and other key information about the live telecasts, including current public television and NASA TV schedules
  • Featured Events: special time-critical activities
  • Background on the Hubble Space Telescope and the target planets, and links to related Web sites
  • Researcher Q & A access and database
  • Photo gallery of interesting and relevant images including the HST planets, and Hubble's "Greatest-and latest-Hits!"
  • Teachers' Lounge: a place for educators to meet and greet one another via an on-line database, Web chat, and sharing of curriculum resources. You can also check out the discuss-hst archive, respond to the latest on-line discussion topics and access an on-line version of the Teacher's Guide
  • Kids' Corner: a place for sharing student work (computer, art, language arts, multi- media projects, desktop publishing, etc.)

I can only imagine how access to this much information would have changed my own school experience. The highway will alter the focus of education from the institution to the individual. The ultimate goal will be changed from getting a diploma to enjoying lifelong learning.

Bill Gates, The Road Ahead, 1995

Whether you're a classroom teacher, home schooling parent, science center or museum educator, or an advocate of school reform and lifelong learning, on-line resources can radically transform the learning process. NASA's K-12 Internet Initiative, our on-line partner, provides a wide array of on-line materials and opportunities freely accessed via the Internet (often referred to as the "Information SuperHighway"). Teachers' responses to our previous projects convince us that going on-line will enhance and enrich your students' learning environment.

You needn't be an Internet expert to benefit from our on-line resources. Passport to Knowledge consciously tries to provide a wide and flexible menu of alternatives for those educators with limited time, technology, connectivity and support. Simple electronic mail (e-mail) via a slower, cheaper modem and regular phone line provides a great deal of information, as well as opportunities for interaction with working scientists and project participants. And it's easy to use, even for a newcomer to the Internet. At the same time, with Live from the Hubble Space Telescope, we've made a commitment to those of you with more advanced networking skills and access, by expanding our Web site to include special features such as Web Chat and videoconferencing.

What's Available?

Electronic Mail

Electronic mail provides an easy-to-use medium for exchanging ideas and receiving and sending information (some e-mail programs even allow you to attach graphics files). E-mail is the traditional first step for those who are new to the "net" and can be stimulating even if a little overwhelming at times! Mail lists: updates-hst and discuss-hst Two essential Live from the Hubble Space Telescope e-mail resources are the updates-hst and discuss-hst mail lists. When you subscribe to a mail list, you automatically receive all messages or "postings" sent out from the folks managing the list. In the case of discuss- hst, you may also send messages to the list.

The updates-hst mail list provides the key link between you and the project by keeping you informed of late-breaking project news, announcements, timely resources and special events. Once you've subscribed to this list, you will automatically receive all updates-hst postings, until you remove yourself from the list. The discuss-hst mail list is a special conference or discussion forum for educators interested in sharing lesson plans and resources, teaching strategies, innovative ways to integrate the project into the classroom, coordinating collaborative efforts, and planning special events. It's also a great place to discuss concerns and questions (and even gripes!) as well as to make suggestions and provide input to the LHST project team. All members of discuss-hst should also be subscribed to updates-hst.

To join either or both of these mail lists:
1. Send a message to listmanager@quest.arc.nasa.gov
2. Leave the subject field blank
3. In the message body, write: subscribe updates-hst
You may also add a line stating: subscribe discuss-hst directly under the above line in the message body.

Once your e-mail message is received by our automatic mail program, you will be sent a file providing essential introductory information about the operation of the list. Please save this information for future reference.

Researcher Q & A

Another resource is available to educators and students beginning March 1, 1996 and extending "live" through the end of April, 1996. This opportunity is known as Researcher Q & A: it enables students to ask questions about the Hubble Space Telescope, astronomy and what's been happening in the project, with answers coming back directly to each individual student inquiry. HST researchers, engineers, and support staff-some of whom will have also be seen on-camera during the videos-will correspond with classrooms, students, and educators in this interactive exchange. Questions will be acknowledged and answered as quickly as possible. All questions and answers will be archived on-line at our Web site. A useful keyword search function will allow quick access to existing Question and Answer pairs. Suggestions about submitting questions will be posted in the regular updates-hst newsletters, which will also provide tips for asking questions and practical logistics. Be sure to subscribe to updates-hst for this key information!

Field Journals via e-mail

From February through April,1996, the day-to-day lives of Hubble astronomers, researchers, and support staff will be shared via these research logs/diaries. Students and educators will meet the men and women who ultimately make the Hubble an unparalleled scientific resource. Field Journals from people at the Space Telescope Science Institute, Goddard Space Flight Center, from astronauts, university astronomers and other project participants around the world, will provide an "over-the-shoulder" view of their lives and work-rare, anecdotal and personal insights on the successes, challenges, and "human side" of contemporary astronomy and high-tech careers. Many educators have used previous Field Journals as models and motivation to help students document their own participation in the electronic field trip. These journals are intended to help students appreciate the great diversity of people and skills needed for success in a modern-day science project. Field Journals will be distributed via updates-hst, and also archived on our Web site for easy access.

Special Upcoming Features

  • a Virtual Tour of the Hubble will be available for all to explore the inner workings of the Hubble Space Telescope and its support network
  • Web Chat: weekly opportunities, at regularly scheduled times and dates, or as arranged by you and new-found, geographically-remote colleagues. Web chat enables real- time, text-based conversation with other people on the Web. You're likely to encounter K- 12 teachers, students, HST project developers and Passport to Knowledge development team members. Web chat schedules will be posted to the updates-hst mail list and on our Web site.
  • Videoconferencing: For those participants who have access to videoconferencing capabilities (which requires special software, camera, and higher speed connectivity: for CUSeeMe, this can be as low-cost as a $100 camera, with free software available: see on- line for more information) a regular schedule of videoconferencing sessions will be posted to updates-hst and on our Web site. We plan to have some of the HST team on hand for informative and fun interactions with students and educators.

Getting Connected

Whatever your unique situation, there are five essential ingredients to Internet connectivity:
1. Computer: updated Mac/IBM with expanded memory for World Wide Web use (8M recommended)
2. Modem: device which connects computer to the outside world via phone line. Recommended speed: 14.4 baud or higher (28.8 if you can)
3. Phone line which may be used for voice or fax when not in use by the modem. 4. Internet account: access to the Internet may be provided by local Internet providers, university accounts, commercial services like America Online, Compuserve, Delphi, Prodigy, Apple's E-World, Microsoft Network, etc. Check with your Department of Education regarding statewide education networks: many states provide reduced rate access for local teachers, so asking around with school colleagues and at the district level definitely pays off.
5. Software: communications software and Internet application software including e-mail program, Web browser, etc. are usually provided by the Internet service provider. Commercial services provide a package of software that is readily available by contacting their 800 customer service number. Since there are so many regional variations, you are encouraged to check with your in- house or district technology expert about local Internet access and specific logistics about using your computer, software, modem and the Internet. If you have general questions which remain unanswered, or specific Live from Hubble issues, feel free to contact Jan Wee, Passport to Knowledge Education Outreach Coordinator. (See inside front cover for phone, fax and e-mail contact information.)

We hope you find these Web and e-mail resources a key project component as you integrate Live from the Hubble Space Telescope into your own unique learning environment, and adapt it to your needs.

ON-LINE ON DISK
This may sound like a contradiction, but if you have no, or slow, access, you and your students can still take advantage of the extensive on-line materials described above, by using regular floppy disks, formatted to work with any computer and word processing program. You'll be able to read Field Journals, search the Researcher Q & A database, and-we hope-see so many things of interest, that you'll be sure to be on-line for future Passport to Knowledge projects!

Richard Seltzer of B & R Samizdat Express, a small Boston publisher, downloads all current files on our Web site and makes them available in Mac or IBM formats. You may order diskettes for $10.00 per 3.5" high density diskette. You are authorized and encouraged to make as many copies as you need to share with students and colleagues. Live from the Hubble diskettes will be available in late February and may be ordered by e- mail or postal mail. Be sure to indicate whether you want IBM or Mac format, your full name and address, and enclose a check, purchase order, or current credit card information. In the U.S., there is no charge for shipping and handling. Massachusetts residents should add 50 cents per disk for sales tax. Outside the U.S., add $2.00 for shipping per order.

Concepts, Themes & Interdisciplinary Connections

Dr. Anne Kinney, Education Manager/ Project Scientist, STScI
Scientists tend to ask the same questions that kids do when they play... They ask a question and that invokes another questionÉ It's something that people know intrinsically when they are children and somewhere they forget it. Scientists still do it, and the more successful they are, the better they are at honoring the questions that come up. ...Science is on-going, but the greatest criticism about the way I learned science is that it was always taught that someone else did it, and that they were usually wearing a white coat and, of course, they were usually male and they knew all the answers and, of course, what was the point. In fact it is really not that way. Science is on-going and if you want to know the answer to something you better be the one who is asking the questions-you yourself-not someone in another room with a different background than yourself. Live from the Hubble Space Telescope is unprecedented, we never used Hubble Telescope orbits for classroom use before. Another unique thing... that we are trying to have students involved in which planet to look at... I would be very happy if they had a feeling that they were the scientists. I would be very happy if they had a lot of unanswered questions. When it was over, I would be happy if they were not content with the plan that was chosen, in fact they wished it was of another planet because they didn't get their question answered. In other words, if we caused a lot of trouble I would be very happy!

Student Placement for Activity 2D: Bouncing Data

Passport to Knowledge is looking to the future and hopes to work with you to design other new and exciting Modules. Some ideas for future programs are:
Live from Mars, Live from Antarctica 2, Live from the Amazon Rainforest, Live from the Ocean Deep, Live from the Place the Dinosaurs Died, Live from Shuttle/MIR, Live from the Fastest Planes on Earth and Live from the North Pole. We hope you agree these are exciting and significant topics for "students of all ages"!

PTK invites you to be a member of a global learning community and come along for some very exciting adventures over the coming months and years. We look forward to working and learning with you on this exciting adventure.
