Geospatial Magic with Lyn and KK
Lyn and KK are true educator’s educators, they both have extensive classroom experience, have created award winning lesson collections, published many books on geospatial education, and provided some of the best professional development that the GeoPriSM facilitators have experienced. Both also model the philosophy of “never stop learning” and continue to stretch the boundaries of what you can do with GIS in the classroom.
In this workshop, we’re turning Lyn and KK loose! They will bring to us the “latest and greatest” in ArcGIS Online and geospatial education. Topics covered are sure to range from lessons suitable for beginners to sessions that will challenge all of us. Insights for ArcGIS (NEW!) will be introduced. Come join us for an inspiring and magical experience with the best of the best!
In this workshop, we will cover:
- Basics of geospatial thinking
- Ask your GIS data a question: how are places related, comparing places, detecting patterns, make a prediction
- Analysis tools in ArcGIS Online
- Displaying your analysis results in a Story Map or App
You will have the opportunity to earn:
- Stipend from the GeoPRiSM II MSP project
