Article source: GISetc
Digital maps and online mapping tools are critical to understand authors mindsets, elements of plot and character development. GISetc has created a series of lectures showing how to incorporate GeoSpatial Tools in teaching language arts. These lectures are given by Barbaree Duke. She is a teacher who is developing curriculum & professional development courses to help teachers & students improve test scores & critical thinking with geospatial technologies.
The goal of GISetc TV is to share and create content that:
1. Excites students about GIS.
This lesson is focused on teaching “context and setting” using geospatial websites and online tools.
