Join Geographer and Educator Dr Joseph Kerski as we explore why and how to teach Environmental Education with today’s web mapping technologies! These technologies, such as ArcGIS Online (www.arcgis.com/home) allow your students to:

  • collect data in citizen science mode via probes, smartphones, and GPS receivers in the field,
  • allow you and your students to map and analyze the patterns from your field-collected data,
  • and analyze land use change, coastal erosion, and other environmental issues from local community greenways to world ecoregions, and everything in between.

The skills gained from these map-driven investigations include critical thinking, working with real data, inquiry, and career and technology education, and are aligned with environmental education content standards.

Posting of resources or events does not constitute endorsement of those materials or activities by the Colorado Alliance for Environmental Education or sponsors of CAEE.
