Your World, Shared: Telling Local Stories with Digital Mapping Tools - MLTI Session

Sign up or log in to save this to your schedule, view media, leave feedback and see who's attending!

Students have an incredible capacity to discover and build a knowledge of the local area, and using digital mapping tools such as ArcGIS Online and Google Earth, share these stories with the rest of the world. This session will look at how we can build a local geography by researching an area’s history, economy and culture, and creating stories that tell the story of the local area. The session will also explore how best to share these stories. It will be an active, constructive session, and participants will take away many ideas for developing a local studies curriculum with their students.
