Share |
Educator Day III

Spatial tools and mapping are perhaps more relevant than ever before. Teachers and students can use digital spatial tools to engage with content in almost any discipline, including current topics such as public health care and COVID-19 or racial disparities and inequities.


The GIS/LIS Consortium has canceled its fall conference this coming October. However, to continue supporting teachers using GIS in the classroom, Educator Day VI will still take place October 9, 2020 from 8:30-4:00pm . All sessions will be online via Zoom and interactive. The schedule is available to view here.


As in past years, this event will include training sessions, one-on-one support, and fabulous and inspiring examples from other Minnesota teachers. If YOU have a case study, lesson, or success story you would like to share please email EducatorDay@mngislis.org. We would love to hear from you!


Teachers will receive a certificate for up to seven hours of CEU credit for attending. If you require assistance for substitute reimbursement please let us know below. We don’t want funding to be a barrier for YOU to attend. We can pay up to $125 as a substitute reimbursement (funds are limited to the first 40 requests).


Please refer questions to EducatorDay@mngislis.org . Please pass along this information to any and all teachers that may be interested.
