OSM & K-12 Education SotM US 2012 PDX

  1. 1. GIS  Appren*ce,  Aaron  Racicot   OSM   &  K-­‐12  Ed     SotM  US   Portland,  OR   13  Oct  12     Jeff  Meyer  jeff@gwhat.org  
  2. 2.  Thesis  The  OSM  infrastructure  has  much  to  offer  K-­‐12  educaHon.    Roadmap  •  K-­‐12  trends  •  Teacher  Needs  •  Student  Needs  •  OSM  role  •  Brainstorming  
  3. 3.  K-­‐12  Trends:  Standards    •  Sweeping  the   naHon  :  )  •  STEM  drives  the   train  •  NoHce  social   studies?  
  4. 4.  K-­‐12   Purchase   Size    Reality:    Spending     Decision   Speed  
  5. 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  ;  )  
  6. 6.   Map  of  the  United  States  by  Eliza  S.   5th  Grade  Map  found  on  the  web.  Learning   Ordway,  1829   David  Rumsey  Map  Collec*on  by  Doing    is  Good    •  Map  creaHon   supported  by   OSM  can   promote  long-­‐ term  retenHon  •  Map  making   collaboraHon   supported  by   OSM  encourages   development  of   social  interacHon   Map  the  World  by  Heart,  FableVision   Example  of  OSM  members   skills   Learning     collabora*ng  to  build  a  map  together.    
  7. 7. GeQysburg  map  made  using  TileMill   GeQysburg  map  from  A  House  Divided   and  OpenStreetMap  data.    History  EducaHon        Present-­‐day  maps  reflect  the  past  
  8. 8. History  EducaHon        Tuning  maps  to  support  visual  learning   Seige  of  Ft.  Sumter  drives  pushes  Virginia,   Tennessee,  Arkansas,  and  North  Carolina  to   secede.  (hbp://geocommons.com/maps/157204)  
  9. 9. “Watching”  the  secession  can  complement  reading.  
  10. 10.  OSM  &  Project  Based  Learning  •  Using  GIS  tools   doesn’t  imply   studying   geography  •  Beyond  place   name  pair  memory  •  Human  impact   Global  World  History  ATlas  •  MulHdisciplinary   High  school  junior  Sarah  using  OSM  and  QGIS  for  Tiananmen  Square   learning   Massacre  research.  She  assembled  a  Hmeline  and  used  OSM  to   idenHfy  locaHons  of  key  events  and  universiHes  where  the   protesters  studied.    
  11. 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    
  12. 12.  Other  uses  of  OSM:  Physics  /  Math  /  GPS  •  Grade  level:  5+  •  What  is  GPS?  •  What  are  tracks?  •  What  are  the  data   formats?  •  Uploading  tracks  to   make  a  map!  •  Why  aren’t  the   GIS  Appren*ce,  Aaron  Racicot   tracks  consistent?  
  13. 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. 14. Other  Background  
  15. 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. 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. 17. 1   9600  x   7200   Wall  map     takes  35   projectors   35  
  18. 18. Even  an  unlikely  4  projector  setup  radically  reduces  the  amount  of  informaBon  that   can  be  displayed.  
  19. 19. Showing  only  ¼  of  the  map  (on  1  of  those  4  projectors)  can  change  the  context  and   perspecBve  of  the  map   significantly.
