2:00 PM -- 2:45 PM
Put Critical Thinking On the Map:Learning, Teaching, Decision-making through GIS (session #242)
Former Wyoming Governor Jim Geringer will describe his experiences with geographic information systems, or GIS, from a policy perspective, then introduce a group of students who will demonstrate how they connect school and community service, followed by a demonstration of how location-based information systems are enabling better instruction and community health care. Geographic inquiry and information system technology are being used by more and more schools to help educators prepare and teach, to stimulate students’ curiosity and learning, and to help administrators manage their education and community assets.
