Connecting with GIS

Incorporating Geographic Information Systems (GIS) mapping into your curriculum is easier than you think.  Interactive maps make your subject come alive and engage students in seeing the topics you teach in new ways.  They connect lessons with real places.

This hands-on session will use ArcGIS Online and explore ways to use it in your classroom.
