Feedback form is now closed.

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are all around us, from Google Maps to the navigation systems in your car or mobile device. In the social studies classroom, GIS tools open the door for deeper understanding and analysis. This session will offer a brief introduction to GIS tools, focusing in particular on ArcGIS. Participants will learn about how 9th graders programmed their own Story Maps to visually represent their research on Transatlantic Trade, see how ArcGIS offers tools to make data-enriched maps, and how to use short, interactive GeoInquiries with your students. Come explore the landscape of GIS technology and begin to imagine how you can use it with your students to help them make sense of the world.
