Charlie Fitzpatrick on Geospatial Skills – a TEDxYouth Talk

Tuesday, January 31st, 2012

Article source: 

This is a TEDxYouth talk by Charlie Fitzpatrick for K-12 students.

Charlie Fitzpatrick is Manager of K12 Education for Esri, a company based in Redlands, CA, that makes geographic information system (“GIS”) software. Charlie was trained in Minnesota as a geographer and teacher. He taught social studies in grades 7-12 for 15 years, with most time in 8th grade (by choice). He spent free time helping teachers learn how to teach with computers (especially geography), and directed multi-week teacher institutes on that for IBM and the National Geographic Society. In 1992, he shifted to Esri to help administrators, teachers, and students learn about the many layers of the world, global to local, and solve problems through geographic analysis. Geospatial technology is a fast-growing arena, and Esri’s sole business is GIS, because people with geospatial skills are needed in every single industry, in governments, businesses, and agencies all over the world.
