A huge thank you to OAGEE’s Dave and Darryl Scott for all of their time and effort in organizing a fantastic Spring Conference in Huntsville. Geography teachers and Environmental educators enjoyed a conference agenda that was invigorating and energizing.

OAGEE invites you to join us at our spring conference in Huntsville this May! This 1-day PD event has been designed to provide attendees with practical experience in collecting geographic data in the field, as well as creating simple GIS maps from our data. This engaging PD will develop new GIS skills that will inspire you to use simple data to teach geography in and outside of your classroom. Whether you are a veteran GIS user, or brand new with no experience, you will find value in applying STEM and 21st century skills and competencies to any geography course you may teach! Many boards have encouraged teachers to embed STEM and 21st Century Skills in our lessons, now here is your opportunity to learn how! Along with new practical skills, you will leave Huntsville with a bounty of digital resources that will allow you to begin or improve upon incorporating data and GIS into your everyday lessons. Whether you are looking for ‘grab and go’ interactive maps with accompanying student handouts, inquiry-based GIS labs, or step-by-step tutorials of how to easily build your very own GIS layers and web maps for any topic of your choice, you will leave with something great to use with your students!
