GIS in the Classroom - Meet the Arizona Educators GIS User Group (AZ EdG)
Come and learn about the new Arizona Educators' GIS User Group (AZ EdG). Our mission is to facilitate the use of geospatial technologies in the classroom through the establishment of a network of stakeholders and a structure that promotes collaboration and exchange of pedagogical and technical knowledge and skills among its members. If you are someone who works in geospatial technology and you'd like to inspire the next generation of practitioners, come meet educators who use GIS to expose students to the power of geospatial technology. We'll share how the AZEdG User Group came to be and what we've been up to and then lead a facilitated discussion about GIS in education. We want to hear from you. Would you like to reach out to high school or early college students, in what capacity? Would you like to mentor teachers as they learn about and teach GIS? Would you like student help in collecting crowdsourced data? If you teach GIS or use GIS as a teaching tool, come find out about and join the AZEdG User Group.
