In 2011 NMSEA expanded its educational outreach efforts by creating a series of short audio clips called "SunTalks". Written by Gary Vaughn and recorded by James Newton, these SunTalk episodes explore renewable energy related topics & ideas in an interesting & engaging way. SunTalks are a purely auditory learning experience - like listening to the radio or a short talk on a smart-phone or an i-Pod.
Each SunTalk is accompanied by a PDF text document which you can download & print & use to follow along with the recorded presentation. The SunTalk documents are written at an 8th grade reading level, but the ideas & concepts that are presented are designed to appeal to "students" of all ages.
In addition to
building & deepening a student's understanding of the basic principles of "Energy" in general, and Solar & Renewable Energy in particular
, the SunTalk audio & written materials can be used for:
sharpening listening skills
sharpening reading skills
improving coordination between auditory & visual learning modes
if internet traffic-jams are slowing or stopping the streaming of these Talks - try this:
1) move the slider to the left and click "Play"
2) Click "Pause" and wait a minute to give the file time to download. A shadow slider moves right as the file downloads
3) Click "Play"
