The Geographic Society of Chicago is pleased to offer a free, three-day workshop to educators that will engage them in learning the basic skills for incorporating geographic information systems (GIS) into their curriculum.

The workshop is virtual, using Zoom for our sessions. All you need is a computer and Internet browser.

The workshop is for in-service, pre-service and informal educators teaching Grades 4-12 in any discipline. Sessions will focus on strategies for using and teaching GIS in your curriculum. No prior experience in GIS is needed.

We will be using both the classic and new versions of ArcGIS Online.

Join us to learn how to integrate interactive online mapping experiences into your existing curriculum

Discover how a GIS differs from other online mapping experiences, such as Google Earth, preparing students for a digital world and potential career opportunities.

Participants must attend all three days of the workshop to receive $300, a Certificate of Completion, and PD hours.
