  • 5. Why  OSM?  •  OSM  price  is  right:  free!  •  OSM  is  universally  available  through  a  browser  •  Maps  engage  the  mind  •  OSM  complemenets  mulHdisciplinary  project-­‐ based  acHviHes  •  OSM  supports  map  creaHon  &  collaboraHon  •  Students’  contribuHons  make  a  difference  •  It’s  easy  to  use  ;  )

  • 11. Simple  OSM-­‐based  EducaHonal  Tasks  #1:  Basic  GIS/OSM  Training  Sequence  •  Step  1:  Draw  a  map  of  your  school  on  paper  •  Step  2:  Map  your  school  on  OSM  •  Step  3:  Ask:  what  was  there  before  your  school?  •  Step  4:  Look  at  historic  maps  to  answer  #2:  Adopt  a  locaHon  &  fill  it  out  •  Maybe  a  nearby  pond  or  waterway,  then  idenHfy  locaHons  of   animal  habitats  •  A  locaHon  far  away,  near  a  school  in  another  country  –  invite  a   cultural  exchange  or  support  humanitarian  relief   –  See:  hbp://hot.openstreetmap.org/    •  Map  locaHons  of  –  and  build  maps  for  –    ancient  villages   –  See:  hbp://pleiades.stoa.org/  -­‐  ancient  places  gazeteer

  • 13. Missing  Gaps  /  Next  Steps   For  Improving  OSM  Support  of  K-­‐12  •  IdenHfy  opportuniHes  to  integrate  OSM  support  into  lesson  plans   –  Standards  -­‐>  objecHves  -­‐>  tasks   –  Find  related  lessons  plans,  improve  them,  share  them  •  Build  class  &  grade-­‐specific  stylesheets   –  TileMill  can  help  here   –  Publishing  examples  on  Mapbox,  gerng  feedback  •  Provide  classroom-­‐specific  planets   –  Hosted  environments  with  blank  slates  surfaces  where  students  can  draw   their  own  maps   –  Set  up  opportuniHes  for  students  to  collaborate  for  creaHng  villages,  larger   areas  with  other  students  •  Get  more  help!  jeff@gwhat.org  
  • 14. Other  Background  
  • 15. •  Aaron  R’s  GIS  ApprenHceship   –  hbps://github.com/reprojected/reprojected.github.com/blob/master/ presentaHons/gis_apprenHce_2012/GISApprenHceship_final.pdf?raw=true  
  • 16. Wall  maps  are  good  •  Projectors  just  cannot  provide  the  sheer   volume  of  pixels  as  a  wall  map  •  OSM  &  digital  map  creators  need  to  keep  in   mind  that  digital  maps  really  encourage   “looking  through  a  straw”  •  Building  good  digital  maps  to  support  Map   Stories  requires  careful  design.  
  • 17. 1   9600  x   7200   Wall  map     takes  35   projectors   35  
  • 18. Even  an  unlikely  4  projector  setup  radically  reduces  the  amount  of  informaBon  that   can  be  displayed.  
  • 19. Showing  only  ¼  of  the  map  (on  1  of  those  4  projectors)  can  change  the  context  and   perspecBve  of  the  map   significantly.
