[G03-07] Prototyping of the teachable moment presetation for recent earthquakes in Japan (2) ---The case of the 3 January 2019 Kumamoto earthquake (M5.1) on and improvement from the previous prototype---
Keywords:teachable moment, the 3 January 2019 Kumamoto earthquake
The Incorporated Research Institutes for Seismology (IRIS) have provided us with slides of teachable moment presentation on recent earthquakes in the world. Teachable moment means a good opportunity for teaching. I sometimes use the presentation slides in my lectures. However, the IRIS does not create the slides on moderate magnitude earthquakes, which cause moderate damages.
Therefore, I plan to prepare teachable moment presentation for recent earthquakes in Japan. I discussed the preparation guidelines based on that of the Incorporated Research Institutes for Seismology.
The guidelines are that the presentation 1) is prepared for high school and university students in Japan learning geoscience, 2) is created on recent earthquakes occurred in Japan, which may appear in a front page of a newspaper, 3) can be interpreted in about 10 minutes, 4) contains information of hypocenter, magnitude, seismic intensities, damages, tectonic background, historic seismicity, focal mechanism solution, aftershock distribution, seismograms, and other event-specific information, 5) is uploaded within 12 hours after the earthquake, 6) is created in a few hours by using the template, 7) is a classroom-ready product that can be customized, 8) contains open information, which sources are clearly given in slides, and 9) contains only information which may be agreed by most seismologist.
I created a prototype presentation on the 2018 Hokkaido Eastern Iburi earthquake, and uploaded it on the webpage ( http://reijikan.my.coocan.jp/RETMJ/retmj-index.html ) (Kobayashi, 2018a, b). Kobayashi (2018b) also discussed issues on the contents and the future project system.
On 3 January 2019, a M5.1 earthquake in Kumamoto prefecture. The JMA seismic intensity scale is up to 6 lower. I also created the presentation. I modified expression of the geometry of the fault plane including roughly approximate extent of the fault plane, and adopted a movie on the propagation of the seismic waves created by the National Research Institute for Earth Science and Disaster Resilience (NIED).
I hope that such developments of teachable moment presentation on volcanic eruptions, typhoons, and so on, are carried out to increase number of students learning geoscience.
