GIS Education: New Series of GPS-to-GIS Videos

GIS Education: New Series of GPS-to-GIS Videos | GIS in Education | Scoop.it

This is from Esri's education team, especially Joseph Kerski.  Have you wanted to use GPS data on GIS but thought it's too hard?  This will coach you through the process.  "I have created a new series of videos on the Esri Education Team’s YouTube Channel and on my geography channel that describes the process of gathering field data with GPS and mapping and analyzing it with GIS in educational contexts."

Going Places with GIS and Geography in Education

Going Places with GIS and Geography in Education | GIS in Education | 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

Thinking Spatially with GIS

Thinking Spatially with GIS | GIS in Education | Scoop.it

What would you do in 75 minutes to introduce your colleagues to spatial thinking and analysis? Recently I had the opportunity to do just that, when my Esri colleague Laura Bowden and I conducted a spatial thinking technical workshop at the 2012 Esri International User Conference. I share our outline and reflections in the hopes that it will be of assistance as you plan your own workshops and classes.

 

First, we were greatly encouraged by the inclusion of such a workshop in the conference for what we believe was the first time. Second, we decided to structure the workshop by introducing how several scholars have defined spatial thinking, plus our own reflections from the standpoint of GIS in education, and followed this with demonstrations of how to use spatial thinking in grappling with real world situations and data using several different tools. In essence, then, we sought to demonstrate “research into practice.”.....
