A wealth of free workshops is available to guide teachers in their use of geographic information systems in the classroom. Which ones will you be attending this year?
Each year, we are privileged to support educators from across Canada in their adventure with geographic information systems (GIS) in teaching. From an introduction to GIS to lessons expanding their knowledge of the tools, we offer a wide range of free professional development workshops. These workshops vary in length from 45 minutes to a full day of training, tailored to the needs of the participants. All workshop materials are available on the Internet for use by teachers and their students.
Take a peek at some of our workshops:
- Les SIG pour dynamiser l’enseignement (GIS to boost my lessons) (in French) — Journée FantasTIC day from Centre de services scolaire de Montréal (in French)
- Montre-moi tes données, Comment transformer ses questions en données cartographiées? (Show me your data, How to transform your questions into mapped data) and Aller encore plus loin avec ses cartes narratives (Going even deeper with narrative maps) (in French) — GIS in Education and Research Conference
- Lessons From Our Planet With GIS — Canadian Geographic Education Summer Conference
- Au-delà de la carte, les SIG pour l’univers social (Beyond the map, GIS for the universe) (in French) — Association québécoise pour l’enseignement de l’univers social (AQEUS) annual conference.
