#WyomingPOD #WyPOD

The plan for the Wyoming POD Workshops are to have a couple of face-to-face workshops (April 1 & June 3, 2017) and provide a couple of teacher virtual workshops before the Fall 2017-Spring 2018 academic year. We will be meeting with a number of teachers on June 9, 2017 as well to promote the Geographical Information Systems (GIS) workshops.

Hi Everyone, 

'Tis the season for conference presentations - what a great opportunity to promote your POD Teacher Workshop offerings!

We created some resources for you in GeoNet content. Right now they are in PPT form but it’s on my list to add a geospatial component and turn all that make sense into story maps and eventually share them on www.pod-stem.org.  Feel free to edit them. https://community.esri.com/groups/power-of-data-facilitators/content  Notice there is also a flyer “one pager” that could be disseminated. If you know the anticipated cost for your workshop and think teachers will need help with funding, we have some resources for helping teachers with fundraising in there as well. We also have a presentation directed more toward administrators.


Speaking of www.pod-stem.org don't forget about resources on  http://www.pod-stem.org/more/  We are continually working on improving the site. Please suggest additions!
