Getting students excited about geography
European Schoolnet's Future Classroom Lab will be equipped with ArcGIS Online, a cloud-based platform for delivering geographic education to the classroom. European Schoolnet and Esri, the company that designed the online mapping software, will team up to develop a series of related lesson plans.
"The cloud-based capabilities of ArcGIS Online align very well with the other technologies we are using in the Future Classroom Lab," says Benjamin Hertz, project coordinator of European Schoolnet. "It is a great tool for teachers to help students become enthusiastic about geography and how it is relevant to many other subjects. Lessons with ArcGIS Online bring STEM [science, technology, engineering, and mathematics] education to a higher level."
“We are excited about the educational opportunities that can be explored by collaborating with European Schoolnet,” says David DiBiase, Esri's director of education for industry solutions. “We hope that by teaming up with European Schoolnet, we can make more students geospatially aware and help them understand the power of spatial analytics."
