Small School Gives Students Big Advantage with Commitment to GIS

February 4, 2016

Organization: Chesley District Community School
Industry: Education
Products: ArcGIS for Desktop, ArcMap

Chesley District Community School has sought to engage students in its geography program through a combination of technology and experiential learning. The school adopted ArcGIS and drew upon teaching resources from Esri Canada to encourage engagement in geography classes. In 2008, the school began integrating the geographic inquiry process into lessons that applied fundamental GIS skills to studying real-life scenarios. As a result, student engagement in geography has increased and students are developing valuable skills, such as spatial analysis and collaborative mapping, which they are using in post-secondary studies and beyond.
