Help Prepare Students For Emergencies
Learning & Leading with Technology, v32 n3 p22-25 Nov 2004
Students in Louisiana are solving real-world problems, and they?re excited about doing it thanks to an innovative educational program called "Quest with GIS: A Louisiana K-12 Classroom Experience." The problems students are solving relate to disaster preparedness, an unfortunate reality in many parts of the hurricane-prone state. While their peers nationwide may be learning about emergency planning for the first time because of Homeland Security measures, many Louisiana school children face an ever-present prospect--a storm or flood could force them to evacuate their homes and find suitable shelter with little advance warning.
