Isn't That Spatial? Overview of Online Spatial Thinking and Digital Maps Course

Looking for a professional development opportunity?  This Fall 2012 eNet Colorado is hosting a series of 5 webinars on spatial thinking.  This promises to be a tremendous opportunity.

 

"The goal of Teaching Using Spatial Analysis 101 is to provide confidence, skills, and the spatial perspective necessary to foster spatial analysis in geography, earth and biological sciences, history, mathematics, computer science, and in other disciplines.

It will accomplish this through a series of hands-on activities where participants investigate a series of fascinating issues relevant to the 21st Century, including population, natural hazards, energy, water, current events, sustainable agriculture, and more. These activities will be supplemented by short readings and reflections that will build a community of educators focused on the value of investigating the world through a spatial perspective." 

 

Facilitator (Teacher): Bianca Katz - Co-Facilitator Facilitator (Teacher): Joseph Kerski  Begins: 19 September 2012. Duration: 5 weeks. Location: Online. Cost: USD $75

Common Core State Standards require us to see the forest and the trees.

 

Brace Map: Thinking Maps, a research-based instructional tool, can help us do just that. Thinking Maps are a series of eight graphic organizers designed to visually represent thought processes. One of these, the Brace Map, shows part-to-whole relationships and can be a powerful construct for seeing both the big picture and finer details.
