Thank you for taking the time to complete this survey. We’ll capture what we hear from you, and create recommendations for Alberta Education to help them craft new curriculum - so that your ideas will find their way into Alberta classrooms. There are just 9 questions; the survey should take you less than 10 minutes to complete. 

What is Energy Literacy?  Here’s our working definition: Energy literacy includes an understanding of the role energy plays in our lives, accompanied by an understanding of its positive and negative impacts - and an ability to apply this knowledge to answer questions and solve problems.


Question Title

* 1. Why do you think energy literacy is important for Alberta students?

Question Title

* 2. Some believe that, as part of our response to the ‘climate crisis,’ we should teach our children more about energy. Do you agree? Please explain your answer. 

Question Title

* 3. Name the most important thing that you think Albertans should know about energy

Question Title

* 4. Write down any key concepts or ‘big ideas’ you think Alberta students should learn about energy during their time in the K-12 education system. This could be knowledge, skills, or attitudes - or a combination of these.

Question Title

* 5. In your day to day life, through conversations with colleagues or what appears in the media - do you perceive any common knowledge gaps when it comes to energy? If so, please name them.

Question Title

* 6. Many commentators have called for a ‘de-polarization’ of the energy conversation in Alberta and in Canada. Do you think this is important? Please explain your answer.

Question Title

* 7. Much of current curriculum covers energy as a science topic, do you think students need to learn about energy from a social perspective? If so, what should they learn?

Question Title

* 8. We believe that learning about energy must connect to at least two closely related topics: environment, and climate. Do you agree? If so, feel free to flag key environment or climate concepts in the space below - and please note that we’ve already captured many such ideas in our ‘Curriculum for a Sustainable Future.’
