I had the priviledge of hearing Fred Hoffman from the Roanoke Governor's School this summer at the National Summit for GIS in K-12 Education at JMU discuss remote sensing. He shared a resource with us from Penn State called the Geospatial Revolution Project. I heard it again at the the ESRI Users Conference this July. The brief video offers compelling reasons to be geospatially aware and made me think about new ways we can be involving our students in geospatial activities intertwined with their curriculum. The slogan alone "The location of anything is becoming everything" makes you think about the impact geospatial skills will have on our future. Have a look at http://geospatialrevolution.psu.edu/.
