  2. 2. Overview of Session Introductions/Activity – What is GIS? What is citizen science? What is FieldScope? What is geo-reasoning? How can I get my students involved? Page 2
  3. 3. What is GIS? Activity – Page 3
  4. 4. What is GIS? Activity – Key Features: • “layers” of information - all geo-referenced • Shape, line, point files • Ability to make queries Page 4
  5. 5. What is citizen science? Voluntary collection of data to contribute to a larger cause, question, or database. Examples: Page 5
  6. 6. What is FieldScope? A GIS- and web-based platform for exploring citizen science data Highlights – Learner Friendly – New data is being added all the time (it’s alive!) Page 6
  7. 7. What is geo-reasoning? Decision Making – Geographic (location, transportation) – Far-reaching (remote consequences) Systems Thinking – Human systems – Environmental systems – Human-environment interactions Source: Daniel Edelson, VP Education, NGEP Page 7

  13. 13. How can I get my students involved? Get involved with a citizen science organization that is using FieldScope – FrogWatch USA – Project BudBurst – Trash Free Potomac Watershed – Nature Bridge – Olympic National Park – BioBlitz 2013 in New Orleans Stay tuned for “project builder” tools… – For updates check www.natgeoed.org/fieldscope Use FieldScope to explore issues as we just did Page 13
  14. 14. Going Deeper Which FieldScope project do you want to dive into more deeply? How can you see using it with your students? Page 14
