Oceana launches new Website

Earlier in the news we told you about the departure of Oceana Belize Vice President Audrey Matura Shepherd. A team from Oceana’s headquarters will come to Belize to conduct interviews with the shortlisted candidates. But whoever is selected to fill the vacancy will also have access to a new website. Oceana’s summer intern, Idalia Machuca developed the new website which comes equipped with complimentary teaching aids.

“Little over three months we actually have a website and it is called TA Belize meaning Teaching Assistant Belize. What’s important about the website is that schools can go and use it. Not only will you find reports on all different levels of the discourse but you will also find teaching materials, modules, activities from kids right up to adults. So with that, that’s the concept behind us launching this website today.”

“So we have the website that you are seeing, the modules and the supplementary materials. The website is the website. The modules are the actual crash courses and the supplementary materials are like classroom activities any kind of activity; assignment, quizzes, all that. So starting with the website, that’s our URL: www.oceanateachb.,com and this is how the homepage looks which is what I think you are all looking at. So what’s really nice is that it is really accessible. You have all the tabs here, you have buttons here, you have explanations of how to use the website here, a little bit about myself and the goals, the reason why we did this project. This is how the page for each module looks; we have five modules right now: climate change, biodiversity, plastic pollution, energy and mangroves. You have a gallery which includes photos from OCEANA from underwater stuff, it is really cool. The images that are actually in the modules, so let’s say a certain teacher likes the image but they want to put it in their own presentations or something like that they could just download it easily right here. Papers and reports is all the papers that are related to Belize, its scientific papers, it is assessment reports from different organizations. So if they want tosee where I got my information from they could download the actual document and read it for themselves.”

 

The intern will continue to work along with Oceana Belize to upgrade the site.
