Past ACSS Websites of the Month)
Check it out! All Arizona schools and youth organizations are now able to obtain access to almost everything related to Esri ArcGIS. This software access allows us to analyze and create geospatial maps, which is cutting edge technology and supports Common Core and STEM studies.
The technology gives students “power to solve problems while developing their spatial and creative thinking skills,” says Lori Rubino-Hare, professional development coordinator at NAU’s Center for Science Teaching and Learning.
Read more about this and to request access to the software, districts must apply through this website: http://news.nau.edu/nau-partnership-opens-high-powered-geospatial-technology-to-schools/
