ABSTRACT
Pandion haliaetus, una carismática especie de ave rapaz con una distribución casi mundial, es altamente visible y adaptada a ambientes antrópicos. En consecuencia, esta especie ha sido ampliamente estudiada a lo largo de la mayoría de su área de distribución y proporciona un excelente foco de atención para el aprendizaje de estudiantes de educación primaria y secundaria. Avances recientes en tecnologías (e.g., telemetría satelital, cámaras web) utilizadas para estudiar a P. haliaetus han producido grandes bases de datos que pueden ser utilizadas en una variedad de cursos de secundaria y pos-secundaria para facilitar el desarrollo del pensamiento crítico, resolución de problemas y habilidades cuantitativas a lo largo de un amplio rango de límites geográficos y políticos. El uso eficaz de medios sociales podría mejorar las oportunidades de integrar la investigación científica de P. haliaetus con la educación ambiental, los alcances y los proyectos de ciencia ciudadanos. Este informe describe el uso de P. haliaetus en programas educativos, particularmente en el marco de la educación primaria. Además, sugerimos el modo en que las nuevas tecnologías y actividades de investigación con P. haliaetus (y otras aves migratorias) pueden ser integradas en programas educativos en distintos niveles para mejorar el aprendizaje a partir de la experiencia e incrementar potencialmente las actitudes y actividades en pro de la conservación.
