EE Week Educator Webinar - Taking Technology Outdoors: Geography Connections
Original broadcast: March 13, 2013
Educators got ready for EE Week 2013: Taking Technology Outdoors by tuning in with National Geographic Education and Esri to explore tech tools that engage students in citizen science projects and connect them with their local communities.
Sean O’Connor from National Geographic Education introduced FieldScope, mobile tech and online communities and how they can be used for citizen science projects. He also discussed how schools can use technology to conduct bioblitzes in schoolyards or local parks to document biodiversity.
Charlie Fitzpatrick, Esri Schools Program Manager, introduced story maps — an online platform for showcasing the data collected by teachers and students in the field and in their local communities via map-based storytelling.
The entire webinar (53 minutes) is available for streaming, and includes both visual and audio components.
