Due to the COVID-19 (Coronavirus) outbreak, AXA Arctic Live 2020 live lessons will be delivered as a virtual event, with speakers joining from where they are, rather than from the UK's Arctic Research Station.
This live lesson broadcast from the Arctic explores what it is like to live above the Arctic Circle. Arctic research station leader Nick Cox will answer questions about his work at the UK's Arctic Research Station. Submit your students’ questions in advance to increase their chance of being answered, or you can submit them live.
Preparing for this session is a great opportunity to develop your students' questioning skills. Use the selection of guides and advice in the Arctic Live Professional Development collection to support this process. Think of a variety of questions, especially open-ended questions and questions that you couldn’t just find the answer to using a search engine.
1. Introduction (5 mins)
The session will start with an introduction by Jamie to an expert who will explain a little about his role at the UK's Arctic Research Station. Jamie will also give a shout-out to any schools that registered, so listen out for your school.
2. Pre-submitted questions (10 mins)
Jamie will then conduct a structured interview using questions which have been submitted by schools in advance.
3. Live questions (30 mins)
The expert and Jamie will then attempt to answer as many of the pre-submitted and live chat questions from schools as possible.
