Event Details

The potential role of GIS as a portal to teaching and learning of Science, Technology, Engineering and Mathematics has been touted for the last several years, with advocacy reaching fever-pitch in recent months. The sanctioning of new core content standards for mathematics, sciences and social studies for the K-12 education segment is creating a renewed interest in continuing to finding new roles for GIS and allied geospatial technologies in the post-secondary classroom. The advanced secondary and post-secondary classroom environments provide a fertile terrain to “map” the STEM principles that are the underpinning of GIS to their roots in the teaching curriculum. This workshop will highlight the rich STEM platform which GIS provides, and will provide resources for those interested in thinking of using GIS in their programs. Case studies from different STEM disciplines, with problems and activities will be exemplified by using Esri’s ArcGIS Desktop 10.1 software.

Instructor: Demetrio P. Zourarakis, Ph.D., GISP, CMS-GIS/LIS, CMS-RS, KY Commonwealth Office of Technology

National Geospatial Technology Center (GeoTech Center)

The GeoTech Center hopes to increase the number, diversity, and quality of geospatial professionals through geospatial technology education at the community and technical college level.  Transforming the preparation and continuing education of geospatial technicians to meet the national workforce demand will be done by:  

 

  • Creating a national clearinghouse of exemplary geospatial curriculum materials and database Web services; 
  • Increasing the quantity, quality and diversity of geospatial technicians to meet U.S. workforce needs;
  • Increasing the number of educators participating in geospatial professional development;
  • Sustaining the Center long-term by seeking collaborations and sources of funding to maintain and improve services and products.
