Field Studies Council: Bringing Environmental Understanding to All

1st National GIS in Schools Conference: Mapping the Future

Field Studies Council (FSC) is delighted to be part of the 1st National GIS in Schools Conference, hosted by Wellington College and also held in conjunction with The Environmental Systems Research Institute (esri UK), and The Royal Geographical Society (RGS).

Geographic Information Systems (GIS) is an innovative spatial mapping technology with the potential to facilitate inquiry and critical thinking in the Geography classroom. There is no better technology available to teachers and students for the solving of geographic problems using spatial analysis.

Key speakers from FSC, esri UK, The Royal Geographical Society and GISETC will examine the reasons why it should be used and highlight the untapped potential of this powerful spatial mapping technology. Through workshops and live demonstrations, attendees will learn how GIS can be used on mobile devices to collect fieldwork data, and how its innovative use can help them to meet their curriculum needs.

The event will take place on Friday 18th October 2013.  For details and to book please visit: www.wellingtoncollege.org.uk/conferences
