GIS in the Classroom Courses

GIS: Bridging the gap between STEM and STEAM.

The GIS in the Classroom workshops are designed for any K-12 educator looking to incorporate quality hands-on problem-solving digital tools into their classroom whether they are teaching 4th grade history or 12th grade environmental science. 

No prior experience with geographic information systems is required. 

Each 2 week online course is designed to give educators a functional GIS skillset and confidence with the Esri ArcGIS products to get them on the fast-track to teaching with the technologies in their classroom.  Emphasis is not on teaching the button clicks of GIS, but on using the GIS toolset as a way to analyze, capture, visualize, and communicate lessons and projects for student learning and engagement.
