The National Center for Rural STEM Education will be hosting the 3rd National Summit on GIS in K-12 Education
at James Madison University in Harrisonburg from 19-20 June 2010. This gathering will provide an opportunity
for developers and teachers to share materials and approaches, for school districts to learn about the possibilities for
GIS in the classroom, for researchers to connect to practioners, and for the GIS in Education community to get together
and plan for the future. This event is co-sponsored by the Virginia Geographic Alliance.
Dr. Mike Barnett of Boston College and National Geographic will be our keynote speaker this year.
Note - the Summit will address GIS use in all school situations, not just rural schools. All are welcome!
