  19. San Diego State University Major Findings: • Let the students have Fun! (Google Earth tutorial / learning modules) (Helix High Visit) • Web-GIS can be adopted easily for High School Computer Lab – No GIS software installation needed! (Hoover high example). • Work with high school teachers together and fulfill their needs. Working with three high schools in San Diego now –High Tech High, Helix High, and Hoover High

  20. San Diego State University Work with High School Teachers Together Helix High (Charter School in California) will start the first high school-level GIS course in Fall 2006 Semester -- GIS 1C/2C • Term 1 (Fall) • Unit 1 – Introduction to GIS • Unit 2 – Web Based GIS • Unit 3 – Basics GIS using ArcExplorer Java Edition • Mapping Our World lessons • Term 2 (Spring) • Unit 4 – Teacher Directed GIS unit • Unit 5 – Data collection and analysis • Unit 6 – Student Created/Driven GIS Capstone Course Project

  21. San Diego State University Conclusion • Phase I – teach with GIS: Using GIS to help existing courses (biology, human geography, information technology, etc.) and teachers’ needs. • Phase II -- teach about GIS: Officially introduce the theories and technologies of GIScience. By combining [teach about GIS] and [teach with GIS], high school teachers will help their students to develop GIS Career awareness. Integrate new technologies (Web GIS, multimedia, 3D visualization) for the new generation of students.

  22. San Diego State University NEXT STEP? • Evaluation of the effectiveness of Web-based GIS learning modules. • Create on-line community for K-12 GIS education -- Weblog for every high school teachers who are interested in GIS education. • Articulation -- develop an AP class for high school GIS course? (equal to the University-level Intro GIS course – General Education?)
