Remote Sensing course for Educators

Dear colleagues,

As a part of your partner university, UNESCO Chair on Science Education (National Pedagogical
Dragomanov University, Ukraine) is happy to invite you to participate in the Remote Sensing course for
Educators which will be held from 22 to 26 November 2021 via ZOOM platform.
Our UNESCO Chair is a co-organizer of the event. We hope that the following information will be interesting
for you and your colleagues!
This course will be of interest to Geography, Biology and Science teachers. We will teach you how to
incorporate Remote Sensing into your study program and make the learning process more fun for
What is Remote Sensing? It is a science about observing different objects and processes on the
Earth’s surface without touching them. It should be pointed out that satellite images are the main
source of Remote Sensing information. Deforestation, plant phenophases, algae bloom, water pollution,
volcanic eruptions and much more can be studied with the use of freely available satellite images.
Remote sensing helps children develop critical thinking skills and is a primary source of
information about our planet Earth. We will introduce you to user-friendly online services such as EO
Browser and Giovanni for processing and analyzing satellite images for different purposes. Each day of
training will consist of a lecture and a hands-on training on a specific topic:
Basics of Remote Sensing; Abilities of Remote Sensing Techniques in studying process
Monitoring of vegetation
Monitoring of water bodies
Emergency situations monitoring
Monitoring of Global Warming consequences and more.
