National Geographic MapMaker equips teachers and learners with carefully curated, standards-focused maps, data, and activities for many subjects and grade levels. In this webinar, we will showcase a number of examples and materials to help you incorporate MapMaker into your teaching.
This is a short walk-through of the 2023 Esri User Conference Exhibit Hall designed to help CTE and college majors understand the types of organizations that offer products or services related to ArcGIS. The video is shot in 360 degrees - allowing for mouse movement of the video during playback or for watching immersively in a VR headset.
In an exciting new education partnership, Esri and the National Geographic Society have collaborated to create the next generation of their MapMaker app for schools. Designed for novice or new to GIS users, MapMaker is a free app that works in 2D and 3D, has a wide range of curated map content, innovative tools, support materials and does not require a login to get started.
There are very few topics to which GIS cannot add understanding. One fun and engaging example is the examination of solar eclipses, illustrated in this short lesson with a data set that you can dig into with your students, to foster spatial thinking, critical thinking, content knowledge about Earth-Sun relationships, and engagement with mapping tools.
In this new lesson I invite you to explore the depths of the Great Lakes with ArcGIS Online using several straightforward yet powerful tools. One could also consider this lesson my tribute to musician Gordon Lightfoot for reasons I describe here.
