Geospatial Technology in the Classroom
Take a day to dive into learning about ways to bring geospatial technology into your classroom. Whether you teach science, literature, math, or social studies, there are materials that can support your students in asking spatial questions and introducing them to essential online mapping tools. This professional development workshop is intended for elementary and secondary educators, bother pre-service and in-service, who are interested in learning about how to set up free organizational accounts for ArcGIS Online; how to use mobile tools such as Survey 123, Collector, and Explorer; how to access GeoInquiries, self-contained online mapping exercises to enhance subjects including civics, math, environmental science, and human geography; and why and how to use geospatial technology in instruction.
Participants will receive access to Esri online accounts and materials, be introduced to the Esri school program, and become part of a network of teachers in the region who are interested in stretching their students’ understanding of mapping and technology.
Instruction will take place at History Colorado sites and affiliates across the state. Funding for instruction and support is provided by Esri and History Colorado. Three identical workshops will be held in different locations across Colorado. The hands-on program will run from 9:00 am to 4:00 pm. Breakfast and lunch will be provided. Participants will need to bring their own computers. Credit from the University of Colorado Colorado Springs will be available for attendees who wish to create their own GeoInquiry following the workshop.
