Esri is pleased to offer three days of hands-on workshops as part of a Mapping Lab at the upcoming National Conference on Geography Education. Staff from the Esri education group as well as some of our dear friends in geography education will be on hand to teach a series of first-come, first-served free 45 minute workshops! These workshops will demonstrate the ease and power of spatial analysis that is possible on the web within ArcGIS Online. The workshops will be held in the Louis XVI Room of the Peabody Hotel in Memphis on Thursday, Friday, and Saturday, 31 July, 1 August, and 2 August 2014.
Never used ArcGIS Online? We’d love to see you. Experienced with ArcGIS Online? We have something for you, too!
Why are we doing this? Because we firmly believe in the connections between web mapping and rigorous geography education, and its connections to inquiry, fieldwork, community, 21st Century skills, STEM, and more, we believe that a hands-on approach is the best way to engage in these tools and methods. The contents of the workshops will include investigations in community demographics, global earthquakes, climate, common core and Geography for Life standards, AP Human Geography, change over space and time, storymaps, business analytics, watersheds and rivers, fieldwork, and more. We will also be hosting an exhibit at the conference that will be perfect for longer discussions about the mapping tools.
We look forward to seeing you there! And if you cannot attend the conference, keep an eye on the Esri Education Community, where all of the workshop activities will be posted.
