From simply showing a map or story map to the whole class, through to individual students working with GIS tools themselves, there are a number of ways in which you can use GIS to provide a little something different in your lessons. ESRI Conference 2016 On Tuesday 17 May I was one of the lucky 3000 or so participants attending the biggest GIS conference in the UK – the Annual Conference for ESRI UK. The opening plenary was an opportunity to learn about how GIS is used in the ‘real world’ outside of education: designers, National Trust property conservation, stopping pirates at sea and much more besides!

GIS Education Community

I will be offering an exciting 5-week online course beginning 25 May 2016 entitled Teaching Geography for the 21st Century. You can register here. Geography Summer Camp: Online Course 2016. Geography is considered one of the world’s oldest disciplines, pioneered by Eratosthenes in 250 BC, and has a rich tradition of scholarship and innovation. Yet geography has always embraced new technologies, research practices, instructional methods, skills, and content. Furthermore, why should geography be taught in the 21st Century? I will teach this course through eNet Learning, whose mission is to provide high-quality professional development, content, and resources that support educators and student learning. This course is designed to build geographic concepts, perspectives, and skills for those teaching geography and those teaching other disciplines who seek to use the geographic framework.
