Mapping for spatial and environmental literacy, Mar 30

The Hall's Members Only Event Calendar - March 8, 2021 - 2:05pm
This series will provide an introduction to GIS (geographic information systems), as well as how to collect and analyze your own spatial data. You will learn how to use and create maps connecting existing and self-generated data gathered from your neighborhood. This is a great tool for remote-learning, and can be used to improve spatial literacy and investigate environmental issues. Information on how to access free data map resources will be provided. No prior experience required to participate.


Activities will use free online links but it is recommended to get an ArcGIS on-line public account if you do not already have an organizational account from your school/district. Individual accounts can be created here.

COVID-19: An environmental and social justice context for learning, Apr 13

The Hall's Members Only Event Calendar - March 8, 2021 - 2:05pm
How do we help students understand their world?

Understanding the world around us calls on skills to think critically and problem solve, skill sets not siloed into discipline areas. Social and environmental justice is a multi-disciplinary and highly relevant learning context. Together, let’s take a close look at the current topic of vaccination against the coronavirus and examine cross-curricula standards-based connections and how each supports the other in a synergistic way.
