Do you want your students to

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?

  • be ready to step into the information rich society?

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

Limitations

  • Not easy to learn the GIS software

  • Budget for the hardware and software

  • Curriculum integration: teachers’ collaboration
