This workshop is part of the 2018 Summer Spatial Institute
Date and location:
August 16, 2018, 8:30am to 4:30pm
Hopkinton Middle High School, Contoocook, NH
Students created maps and apps are terrific! But sometimes you need an easier and faster approach. As ArcGIS Online has become more popular, hundreds of content area experts have created ready-maps and apps designed to “inform the public, engage stakeholders, and inspire an audience.” Just use them! Easy!
In addition, as major news stories break, maps and apps appear almost immediately. Sometimes these maps are crowd-sourced... meaning YOU can enter your contributions to a worldwide database of responses.
These ready-made resources could be useful in your curriculum area. When your students have geographic questions to answer... how do you locate these resources? In this one day course you’ll learn how to find, evaluate, and interact with story maps, crowd-sourced maps, geoinquiries, and other maps as well as begin to plan how you might utilize them within your curriculum. No account or login required!
