  1. 1. The GoogleSpatial World:Making Classrooms a Spatial Place Bob Kolvoord James Madison University kolvoora@jmu.edu
  2. 2. Why?  What are the key questions we expect adults to be able to answer/ address in the 21st Century?  What skills will be needed?  Where do we teach them?
  3. 3. Spatial Thinking  [The] ability to visualize and interpret location, distance, direction, relationships, movement and change over space (Sinton, 2009)  Looking for geographic patterns, interpreting phenomena at different scales, answering the “why things are where they are” question
  4. 4. Support  National Academies Reports ◦  Learning to Think Spatially: GIS as a Support System in the K-12 Curriculum   Geographic Information Science has significant but as yet unrealized potential for supporting spatial thinking across a range of subjects in the K-12 curriculum (pg. 8) ◦  Successful K-12 STEM Education: Identifying Effective Approaches in Science, Technology, Engineering, and Mathematics   “Increase STEM literacy for all students, including those who do not pursue STEM-related careers or additional study in the STEM disciplines” (pg. 5)
  5. 5. What are the GoogleSpatialTechnologies?  Geobrowsers (i.e. Google Earth)  GPS  Remote Sensing  GIS
  6. 6. Geobrowers  Easy to use  Ubiquitous?  Provide a new vantage point on the world (the way in?)
  7. 7. GPS  Huge growth in the automobile industry  Lots of schools have handheld GPS units – good opportunity to collect data (VGI or “citizen science”)  Do GPS units make us locationally stupid?
  8. 8. Remote Sensing  “Eyes in the Sky”  Can be “pictures” or can be at wavelengths we can’t perceive with our eyes  GeoEye - http://www.geoeye.com/CorpSite/  Landsat - http://www.esri.com/landsat
  9. 9. Basic applications  Google Maps – http://maps.google.com  Bing Maps – http://www.bing.com/maps  Google Earth – http://earth.google.com/  Google Earth lessons - http://gelessons.com/lessons/  Structured or unstructured, but mostly show and tell (relatively little analysis)
  10. 10. Web-based GIS applications  National Atlas – http://www.nationalatlas.gov  ArcGIS Online – http://arcgis.esri.com  Google Mapmaker – http://www.google.com/mapmaker  ESRI Business Analyst Online - http://www.esri.com/software/bao/  Broadvariety of geographic data. The price is right, but flexibility and control are limited
  11. 11. More Web-based mappingapplications  ESRI EdCommunity Collections –http://esriurl.com/edteamportal1http://esriurl.com/edteamportal2  ArcGIS Explorer Onlinehttp://explorer.arcgis.com/
  12. 12. Going Further?  Desktop GIS software ◦  ArcGIS (http://www.esri.com) - PC only ◦  MyWorld (http://www.myworldgis.org/) - Mac or PC ◦  Freeware packages  What’s possible? ◦  Geospatial Semester   http://www.isat.jmu.edu/geospatialsemester
