Even though T3G is not advertised on the Esri Training site, we manually post your course attendance and Certificate of Completion there along with any other Esri training courses that you have started or completed. Follow these steps to access your Certificate of Completion for T3G 2019 (or 2015-2018).

  1. Go to www.esri.com/training.
  2. In the upper right, Sign In.
    • Sign in using an account that has in the profile, the same email address you gave us in your T3G registration form, because that is the email address that I provided to the certificate-makers.
    • For example, it might be a free public ArcGIS Online account, or your school ArcGIS Online organizational account, if it is Esri enabled. (Recall that your T3G organizational account is NOT Esri enabled, so you can't use those credentials to sign in to esri.com/training or community.esri.com, a.k.a. GeoNet.)
  3. In the upper right, black bar, choose My Academy, then go to My Learning Activity.My Academy menu
  4. T3G 2019 should be near the top of the list of courses, if the list is sorted by Recently Added. You should see a View Certificate button. View Certificate button
  5. Click View Certificate to open a PDF of your certificate. You can download or print the PDF if you would like.

What to do if T3G 2019 is not listed in My Learning Activity

  1. If you have more than one Esri enabled account that has your same email in the profile, then check the other account(s) for the certificate. Hopefully it would be in one that you have used for other Esri training.
  2. If you do not find the certificate in any of your accounts, proceed to Step 4 below.
  3. If you found your certificate in an account other than the one you use as your primary training history location, and you want us to move the T3G 2019 record to anther account, proceed to Step 4 below.
  4. To get help if you can't find your certificate or if you need to move your T3G record to a different account, Click Help tab in the upper right corner of the black bar. Scroll all the way to the bottom of the page to the Have a Question? form. Complete the form and explain the situation in the message section. One of my colleagues will assist you.
    NOTE. In the Subject list, choose Training History and Certificates (not Technical Certification). In the message, include the official course title, Teachers Teaching Teachers GIS. For T3G 2019, include the event ID, 50151048. For previous years, include the year.

Many educators regularly want to examine changes-over-space-and-time with imagery and maps for research or instruction purposes.   As of last week, 81 different dates of historical imagery for the past 5 years now reside in ArcGIS via the World Imagery Wayback service.   For more information, see: https://www.esri.com/arcgis-blog/products/arcgis-living-atlas/imagery/wayback-81-flavors-of-world-im...

You can access this imagery in ArcGIS Online, ArcMap, and ArcGIS Pro.  A great place to start is the World Imagery Wayback app – just by using a web browser  – https://livingatlas.arcgis.com/wayback/    A fascinating and an incredible resource for examining land use and land cover change, changes in water levels of reservoirs, coastal erosion, deforestation, regrowth, urbanization, and much more.  This resource covers the entire globe.

However, in keeping with the theme of T3G and the bookThe GIS Guide to Public Domain Data of being critical of the data, caution is needed.  The dates represent the update of the Esri World Imagery service.  This service is fed by multiple sources, private and public, from local and global sources.  Thus, the date does not mean that every location that you examine on the image is current as of that date.  I verified this in several locations where my ground observations in my local area show construction as of June 2018, for example, but that construction does not appear on the image.  In addition, several other places I examined from wintertime in the Northern Hemisphere were clearly “leaf-on” and taken during the summer before, or even from the summer before that.  Therefore, as always, know what you are working with.  Despite these cautions, the imagery still represents a truly amazing and useful resource.

I will be writing a followup to this post about how to get the imagery out of the Wayback app and into ArcGIS Online. It's not difficult though and is the logical next step for you to explore.

If you are the administrator of one or more ArcGIS Online Organizations in a K-12 setting, or if you support other administrators in your region, you already know that effective Organization management takes some know-how. In this  month's webinar, Charlie Fitzpatrick explores some common questions related to managing member accounts, managing app licenses (such as ArcGIS Pro), managing member's items, and more.

Special thanks to T3G Alums Robert Woolner and Allison Hoff for sharing their questions and expertise in this arena. Some excellent dialog was shared in the chat as well, so be sure to check out the Chat document in the recordings and resources folder. This is a complex topic, so I'd love to see others of you share your questions, approaches, or experiences with ArcGIS Online organization management with our T3G Alums group.

Third Thursday T3G webinars will continue in the new year. Join us Thursday, January 18, 2018 at 8:00 pm Eastern (5:00 pm Pacific) for the next webinar. The topic will be announced after the holidays.

Have you been looking for some ways to get more impact from your GIS professional development efforts? In this webinar, three of our T3G colleagues shared what they have been doing to generate interest and adoption of GIS in the schools in their region. Margaret Chernosky (Maine), Stanley Mubako (El Paso region), and Georgeanne Hribar (Virginia Beach region) shared the details of how they approach and organize their outreach work, and displayed their passion for GIS in schools! During the webinar, the three of them agreed to share their workshop agendas, so watch for those posts, too! 

CORRECTION: During the wrap-up, I gave the wrong date for the next webinar. (Thanks, Margaret for pointing it out!) The next webinar will be Thursday, December 21

Many thanks to Joseph Kerski for giving an outstanding presentation about Community Analyst. The webinar took place on Thursday, October 19th.

Community Analyst is a valuable tool for teaching and learning about local communities, not only in the United States, but in other locations around the world. The application gives you, teachers, and students access to an enormous amount of data on demographics, consumer behavior, and business locations. As Joseph demonstrated, these data and maps can be applied to research, critical thinking, and building a sense of place. Best of all: Community Analyst is included in the free Esri ArcGIS for Schools Bundle!

It's been awhile, but I am making a committed effort to get back and involved in the larger GeoEd & T3G community. Seems I work a lot with faculty and students at my school (Albuquerque Academy) posting projects to our organizational account, facilitating innovative ideas incorporating geospatial concepts into curriculum, working with faculty developing curriculum that is student-driven, handling any number of issues and questions with our LMS, and, well, working in a school.

>> Update<< The project described was a perfect storm (no pun intended) of some students in an 8th grade Earth Systems course (Block F) who were interested in doing something for independent schools who were impacted by the latest (and future) hurricanes. They wanted to have something posted where schools could fill out a survey, then see on a map who might offer help and who needs help. The perfect storm was my seeing a post by Sara Hanwold from ATLIS doing an open blog to achieve a similar result. We (the students, teacher, me, Sarah) felt it a great way to showcase student ideas and need.

Since this crossed the boundaries of our ESRI agreement, the webapp and map are no longer shared outside AA. I apologize for lack of clarity of the complete process and student involvement. I apologize and hope the above clarifies the situation.

We are also happy to have an intern in our science department who is well-versed in GIS. He and I will be developing more curriculum for science classes (grades 6-12) were students do field work and pursue project research needed here in Albuquerque. This is an exciting opportunity for everyone involved and, we hope, will put our drone to use mapping our campus.

Last week, Charlie Fitzpatrick and I facilitated the first of our new, regular “T3G Third Thursday” webinars. Many thanks to all who attended and participated!

In this webinar, Charlie and I presented several news items related to Esri’s education offerings and activities, the current state of our vision for the future of the T3G program, and some pointers and reminders about ArcGIS Online Organizations for the start of the school year.

We asked participants what they’d like to see in future webinars. Suggestions include an introduction to ArcGIS Pro, and detail about ArcGIS Online organization workflows for managing student accounts at the start of the school year.

I encourage you to watch the recording and check out the resources that we discussed.

In addition, these training guides for educators are available in the Education place, here on GeoNet. They will be updated periodically.

What topics or discussions would you like like to see (or present) in future webinars? Please enter your ideas in the comments below.
