Compass: Advancing Earth Education Resource Discovery

The Compass project responds to the need, identified by the Earth Education community, to improve the discoverability of existing, high-quality Earth education resources. The project will focus on three key elements:

  • Improving our understanding of how Earth educators explore the wide array of resources currently hosted by SERC.
  • Using that understanding to drive improvements in SERC infrastructure and the organization of SERC-hosted materials that will more effectively connect educators with the materials and information they need.
  • Expanding the scope of materials discoverable through SERC tools to include high-quality Earth education materials hosted by partner sites.


Discover Diversity, Equity, Inclusion and Justice (DEIJ) Resources
Posted: Dec 9 2022

The Compass project has developed a new search interface for finding SERC-hosted resources that support diversity, equity, inclusion and justice in geoscience education. Through a new DEIJ vocabulary you can explore over 500 resources that include teaching activities, projects, and programs. 

New Navigation Tools
Posted: Dec 9 2022

The Compass project has advanced a pair of new navigation tools for visitors to SERC hosted sites. The 'Where I've Been Feature' allows you to review and revisit content that you've visited earlier.  The 'Pages You Might Like' feature recommends resources from across SERC that relate to your current exploration.

Supporting Accessible Learning Resources
Posted: Dec 9 2022

SERC is taking a multi-pronged approach to improving the accessibility of geoscience education resources as part of the Compass project. A key element is a new resource guide designed to get instructors up-to-speed on accessibility best practices.
