Educators, Students and Parents: Share your ArcGIS activities and projects

April 2, 2020 Angela Alexander

Are you a parent who's now working from home and supporting your child’s learning during this challenging time? Are you an educator who continues to send work to your students online? We are looking for ArcGIS activities and projects that we can highlight.  Share your story with us and you could be in an upcoming blog post.

As we are all staying home to do our part in “flattening the curve,” many of us find that we are now balancing working remotely while facilitating wonder and encouraging learning in our children. We are asking parents, educators and students to share the work they have been doing at home using ArcGIS.

How are you remote teaching or remote learning these days? Send us the activities and projects that you have been doing with your children or assigning to your students. We want to inspire others to do the same!

Students are continuing their learning by using free ArcGIS resources from Esri Canada’s Resource Finder.

Inspiration: Check out high school teacher Brian Beard’s recent tweet on an erosion unit that he put together using ArcGIS StoryMaps and Survey123 for ArcGIS.

Share your ArcGIS activities and projects that focus on spatial thinking, inquiry, collaboration and project-based learning! Email us at k12@esri.ca and we may highlight them in an upcoming blog post.

I will leave you with this fun activity that Esri’s GIS Education Rock Star Joseph Kerski has shared on “Hand Wash Geography.”

Continue your mappy work!
