A Geographic Information System (GIS) is an incredibly powerful tool that allows you to collect, analyze, and present geographic data at scales from your school grounds to the world. High powered GIS software is available to K-12 educators and students for free and these workshops will help you implement geospatial projects with your students. As Joseph Kerski states, “Teaching spatial thinking empowers the populace with the skills to understand and act upon the big issues facing planet Earth.” Come join us to learn how to implement it in your curriculum.
