Mapping the American Experience is a collaboration between the National Humanities Center and central North Carolina school districts to create professional development training for K–12 educators on the use of geographic information system (GIS) technology in teaching and scholarship. With a focus on geoliteracy skills as they apply to the humanities, each training session will support the integration and application of Esri GIS services to curriculum and classroom.
This institute will focus on the integration and application of GIS tools for teachers new to the field as well as those experienced with GIS technology.
