Social Representation of Marine and Coastal Environments: a perspective of teachers from southeast coast of Brazil

  • XVII IOSTE SYMPOSIUM Science and Technology Education for a P IOSTE


We investigated eleven teacher’s social representations of marine and coastal environments - SRMCE (through questionnaires and texts), as well as the possible influence of environmental education field activities on them. Most of teachers represented marine environment as resource for survival and benefit of human beings, indicating an Anthropocentric SRMCE. The training experience did not influence on it, since it was a very short experience. However, it positively influenced some other aspects as stronger coastal environments connectedness and relation between these environments and Education. It highlights the potential of training experiences on field as an initial tool to improve teacher´s SRMCE.
