As you are all probably aware, during COVID19 alert level 4 school teachers have had to very rapidly move to teaching classes in an online environment. Many teachers have used this new environment as a reason to brush up on their GIS skills and / or use GIS in the classroom. For many teachers this mode of teaching will continue as we go down the COVID19 alert levels. Some teachers will also have to teach in a hybrid environment with some students in the classroom and students online, beaming in from their homes.
Below are some useful resources that you could recommend to the teacher(s) you mentor to enable spatial learning from home using ArcGIS Online
- The Esri Mapping Hour
- Loading students into ArcGIS Online - via a CSV file
- Loading students into ArcGIS Online using Single Sign On (SSO)
- Skills building for teachers
- Skills building for students
- Lessons, using Story Maps, to get you started with ArcGIS Online
