Two Minnesota colleges have developed online resources for K-12 educators. This information has been added quietly to the Consortium’s K-12 Education website. This article highlights them for our readership.
Carleton College’s Science Education Resource Center (SERC) works to improve education through projects that support educators at all levels. They have a special portal for K-12 Educators. A full section is devoted to GIS resources, including teaching activities and examples.
The University of Minnesota’s Learning Technologies Media Lab (LT Media.Lab) has developed GeoThenic to help K-12 teachers use geospatial technologies most effectively in their curriculum. Five modules are currently available that push students to use that technology to solve real-world problems.
