Do you want your students to:
  • engage in activities that improve critical thinking and problem solving skills?
  • integrate knowledge from multiple subjects?
  • build a rich grasp of global topics?
  • work on community-based investigations?
  • use the same advanced technology employed by business and government?

Your task: Find a lesson plan related to your subject and explain it to the class.

with gis students should
With GIS, students should:
  • take an active role
  • work with an authentic problem
  • analyze how one factor relates to other conditions of a given place
  • apply similar features in other places
  • synthesize their findings
  • evaluate or predict a problem
with gis teachers should
With GIS, teachers should:
  • ask to add new data
  • give an authentic problem
  • ask “what if”
  • give a scenario
  • have students interpret the mapping information they displayed
  • provide an assessment tool for their project
critical questions to carry a gis project
Critical questions to carry a GIS project
  • What should be answered (determined)?
  • What types of data must be collected?
  • How are the data collected?
  • How are the data visualized?
  • How are the data used to make decisions?
your task a gis lesson plan
Your task: a GIS lesson plan
  • As a group, develop a GIS lesson plan related with your subject matters
  • Plan to develop a series of maps
  • Scratch a series of maps on the file I gave to you
  • Let’s talk about your lesson plan and its instructional values
limitations
