Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The interactive provides two different ways for students to explore data (chart and table).
  • Related research and data are linked.
  • The site explains how the data was collected.
Additional Prerequisites
  • Learners need to be familiar with the different sources of energy.
  • Educator would need time to get familiar with this interactive media and decide on how to implement it with the learners.
Differentiation
  • There are other related interactive maps for other sources of energy.
  • Can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Scientist Notes

This resource explores world energy consumption from oil, gas, and coal and evaluates the relative change from 1965-2020. Energy data from different units were normalized. This method is suitable, and the resource is recommended.
