From Workshop to Classroom: Bridging GIS Success
Stonier, Francis; Hong, Jung Eun
Geography Teacher, v13 n2 p52-60 2016
This article shares the first-time geographic information system (GIS) experiences of two advanced placement human geography classes. The teacher had participated in a summer GIS workshop and then brought those skills into her classroom for the students' benefit. Eighteen students shared their experiences researching their family history, working to map the migration of their genealogy to the United States, and presenting their findings to their classmates. Researchers were on hand to observe presentations and collected survey data from the students. Overall it was a very successful educational experience in which students utilized a "new" technology in the context of their own lives.
