This is a pivotal year for GIS educators. The functionality of ArcGIS Online continues to expand at a rapid pace offering ever-increasing opportunities for  educational use.

GIS Educators Day will offer these hands-on workshops on ArcGIS Online:

* Introduction to Web Mapping

* Adding GPS Data to ArcGIS Online
* Publishing Content to ArcGIS Online

Oral presentations and panels will offer a range of additional topics of  interest to educators from all disciplines, at levels from public elementary school through state departments of education to elite colleges, plus after-school programs, parks, museums, and libraries.
