Resources that Support Geoliteracy and Geospatial Understanding
February 20th @ 9 - 11:30 am
This second of two workshops in our GIS series will deepen participants' understanding of cartographic and geographic representation alongside University of Michigan - Flint's GIS Center Manager, Troy Rosencrants. We will further explore various web-based GIS applications that can be implemented with students such as Wikiwatershed and Esri Geoinquiries using examples across content areas. This second workshop assumes the participant has basic knowledge of GIS such as that provided during the first session in this series.
1. A fifteen minute video serves as a prerequisite for this session and will be emailed at least one week prior to the live session.
2. Where possible, we encourage participants to print accompanying worksheet(s) ahead of the live session to aid in navigation.
3. Where possible, we encourage participants to join the workshop using duel screens. This is not a necessity, but may reduce technological burden during the live event.
Options to do so may include: joining the meeting to view the presentation on one device and using the GIS application(s) on another device OR using a dual monitor office setup. We will also show participants how to view both on one screen if two are not possible.
4. Please plan to use a laptop or computer to interact with the GIS application(s) ad not a mobile device.
Participants may attend one or both sessions in this series. The first workshop, "Introduction to GIS (Geographical Information Systems), MapFlint, and Geospatial Technology," is scheduled for February 17th @ 4 - 6:30p.m. and requires separate registration.
