Using ArcGIS to Bring the Real World to the Classroom:


Geospatial technology is a powerful tool for exploring and analyzing spatial data. Spatial data is any piece of information that has a geographic position. ArcGIS (ESRI) is the premier geospatial software and is available to classroom teachers and administrators, with the goal of incorporating spatial data across content areas to teach core content along with 21st century skills. The ArcGIS software and ArcGIS.com, along with their classroom application will be presented in this session.

To register for the three-hour workshop, “Hand-on” Lab for Using ArcGIS in the Classroom, Monday afternoon at 1:15 p.m. in C112-113, contact Tracy Taylor at tracy.taylor@etech.ohio.gov .
