Great Spatial Thinking Article

My friend, Dr. Joseph Kerski, has penned a nice article on spatial thinking in the latest issue of ArcWatch from ESRI. This issue has come to the forefront in recent years, but I believe is at the core of education, regardless of the subject. We need to create communities of thinkers. Thinking happens for students when they see connections and purpose in their world. Have a look at Joseph's article and send along comments for discussion.

Well done Joseph!
