Clare here - welcome back to Where? Where? Wedgie! 2019, and to the introduction page.
We'll be following eagle researcher James Pay from UTas as we learn all about eagles and other birds, and get ready for the big wedgie survey in May. Students and teachers can join us each day with the videos he's prepared (with the help of Great Expeditioner Andrew Hughes), together with photos and reports. We'll also be keeping an eye out for some of James' tagged eagles - described under the EXPERTS tab up on the main menu. Will any of us find Winifred and Eric???
From the start of Expedition Class until the end of the survey, students and teachers can say hello and introduce themselves on the discussion board each day. We keep a very close eye on the threads to make sure everyone is playing by the rules- staying on topic, being helpful and not hurtful, asking sensible questions, and sticking to general good netiquette. We will delete off topic or silly posts to keep it easy for everyone to read and we sometimes have to delete students accounts without warning. Don't be THAT student!
If you have a class photo that you'd like to add to the album for Day 0, send it to firstname.lastname@example.org and I'll pop it in.
If you want to join in on the wedgie survey on 10th, 11th, 12th, 24th, 25th and/or 26th May - or just learn more about it - go to the NatureTrackers website. It is a different website and log in because it is open to everyone and not just students. Sign up and see if you can get to a priority 'golden' square on one of these days. If you can - book it! - you can take part in the official survey! If you can't reach a golden square, you can still take part in a 'practice' survey in another square, and also follow along with everyone else's findings.
Enjoy the adventure and maybe do a bit of learning along the way - I definitely will!
