Educating the wider population about energy use, the social, environmental and economic consequences of energy consumption and the potential impact of energy efficiency measures is critical if long-term change is to occur in attitudes and practice.
Key research Question
The learning pack has two main aims: to improve primary school teachers’ knowledge of energy and energy efficiency and to provide guidance on how these subjects can be taught successfully. While it is primarily designed for primary schools, it is envisaged that the resource can be used at secondary level as well.
Summary of activity
This project involved the development of a teaching resource. The pack contains activities, readings, assessment exercises and examples of effective teaching practice with regard to various energy concepts.
