Description: Mapping activities are a great way to support student learning in a wide array of fields from science to math to social studies and even literature. In this hands-on session, teachers will learn to use simple online mapping tools that work on any device and field data collection activities that can be done on school grounds or at home for remote instruction. We will brainstorm ideas for using mapping activities to support learning outcomes and how to incorporate the activities into remote instruction. Students will depart with a wealth of links to ideas and resources, as well as information on getting ongoing support and grant funding.
