2018 MN GIS/LIS Conference K-12 Teacher Workshops
Educator Day III

The Minnesota Department of Education and Minnesota GIS/LIS Consortium are excited to announce Educator Day IV. This year it will be held at the Duluth Entertainment and Convention Center on Wednesday, October 3 from 9 a.m. to 4:30 p.m. Educator Day III, held in Bemidji last October 2017, had seventy-two K-12 teachers and District staff attend. We are excited to see you again this year! The day will include many hands-on GIS activities, sessions and a lunch that will highlight Matthew Winbigler from Cloquet School District. Matthew attended the first Educator Day in 2015, signed up for an ArcGIS organizational account, and hasn’t looked back. He will discuss how GIS is being utilized in Cloquet’s middle and high school classes. He will bring along one of his students that was a winner in the 2018 Minnesota Map Competition.
