This hands-on workshop will introduce easy-to-use web-based mapping tools that can be used for collaborative assignments and projects in the classroom. Online mapping tools offer creative environments in which students can pull together multimedia elements from their learning into a shared, visual space. Maps can visually represent relationships between data and other information that may be difficult to comprehend otherwise. From representing locations found in literature to annotating historical sites and visualizing geospatial data, these tools can tie learning to real-world knowledge. Mapping tools also enable the creation of scholarly resources that extend beyond the confines of a single course, to other courses or to independent work. No prior experience with geographic information systems (GIS) is expected. Audience: Princeton faculty members and instructional staff and undergraduates.
February 10, 4:30 – 6:00 p.m. in East Pyne 012. RSVP to reserve a place.
