Synopsis
  • This resource includes an interactive map and graphs that show the share of electricity from nuclear for countries around the world since 1985.
  • Data is compiled by Our World Data. It is based on two sources: BP Statistical Review of World Energy and Ember.
Teaching Tips

Positives

  • The interactive provides three different ways for students to explore data (chart, map, table).
  • Students may choose to view datasets for various geographic locations and time periods.
  • Related research and data are linked.
  • The site explains how the data was collected.

Additional Prerequisites

  • Learners need to be familiar with the different sources of energy.
  • Educator would need time to get familiar with this interactive media and decide on how to implement it with the learners.

Differentiation

  • There are other related interactive maps for other sources of energy.
  • Can be used to create awareness about one or more of the Sustainable Development Goals (SDGs).
Scientist Notes

The resource underscores electricity production from nuclear in different countries from 1985-2020. Method used is relevant and suitable for teaching.
