Check out EarthXplorers, a great proof-of-concept to help transform K-12 env education http://httpbit.ly/2mVXBuB 

A new video (above) describes EarthXplorers, a project of the University of Minnesota's LT Media Lab in partnership with Esri, the National Trust for Historic Preservation and others. EarthXplorers is a successful proof-of-concept that pairs mapping with an online learning environment to support guided project-based learning at the K-12 level. Thanks to David DiBiase and Charlie Fitzpatrick for this info!
