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  Feel free to edit them.  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 don't forget about resources on  We are continually working on improving the site. Please suggest additions!
