This week I had the honor of presenting in the 1 Tool at a Time Series sponsored by the ISTE SIGms and SIGilt. In the short 30 minute session I shared what GIS looks like for the classroom and demonstrated how you can access maps and curriculum quickly. You no longer need lots of time and expertise to infuse your classroom with geospatial technologies.
If you'd like to check out the recording, go the GIS in Education page at the 1 Tool at a Time Series wiki. http://1toolatatime.wikispaces.com/GIS+in+Education While you're there, you'll find a handout of the links shared.
Also, Katie Christo, the SIGilt chair, put together the links along with some of her own on Pinterest: http://pinterest.com/katiechristo/gis-mapping-in-education/.
And that's not all! If you're still interested in learning more about how to get started with GIS in Education, join the folks at NCGE for a free webinar this coming Wednesday! Charlie Fitzpatrick, Esri Education Manager, will be sharing his perspective on where to begin with GIS in Education.
