Join geographer Joseph Kerski as we explore the world of multimedia, web-based story maps. Government agencies, nonprofit organizations, private companies, and students and educators of all ages are using story maps to explain their mission, to show the results of their research, to inspire, to call attention to issues such as water quality, land use change, energy, or natural hazards, and for many other purposes. Story maps foster spatial thinking, critical thinking, communication skills, and immersive work with many technologies, including multimedia and web based maps. Story maps can be embedded in your own web pages and presentations, and can also serve as tools to assess student learning. The webinar will include how story maps can be used in the classroom and in the field, the types that are available, and how they connect to the broader field of geotechnologies. Ways of creating and sharing story maps will be also be shown so that you will feel confident that you and your students can use, create, and share them.
