We are pleased to announce that the new 2010 U.S. Census datasets with their new geometry and attributes are now available as layer packages on ArcGIS.com.

 

Time for ESRI to update the datasets, means time for use more current relevant data in the classroom.

Going Places with GIS and Geography in Education

Going Places with GIS and Geography in Education | Democracy in Place and Space | Scoop.it
Long-time educator Barbaree Duke has been integrating GIS into her classroom since 2000. As a staffer for the National Council for Geographic Education, she actively advocates the use of GIS for geography education in the K-12 environment.

 

GIS is not just for the specialists producing the data.  Exploratory projects can get students to wanting to ask questions and focus their spatial thinking skills

Historypin

This is a video introduction to www.historypin.com which might just prove to be an very useful and important project.  It's historical geography powered by colloborative mapping that is infused with social media dynamics.  Backed by Google, they are geotagging old photos to recreate the historical geographies of all places and comparing them with current streetview images.  You can search by topic, place or date...this has the potential to be very big.

Absolutely brilliant! The possibilities that this offers are staggering. If museums, galleries, and archives all got on board with this, they could create an incredible database that would allow teachers to add so much more depth to their lessons. I feel like having a visual timeline paired with geographic references in this capacity would give students (and everyone else!) a stronger understanding of how deeply history and geography are connected.

Agreed, this is conceptually amazing...but what a vast undertaking. I'm half-tempted to upload some pictures but I know that I've got too many pet projects at the moment and think that this one has the potential to overwhelm me time-wise.

Awesome site! As an aspiring teacher, this website can be great for then and now projects. When explaining different eras or time periods this not only shows where certain things took place, but what they looked like as well. Definitely something that will become more popular in the social media aspect of society. Definitely a site I can spend hours on.
