We’ve received a tremendous response to our request for “early adopters” of the statewide educational site license for Esri’s ArcGIS software. Because you have expressed interest in or your organization has received the license, we’d like to invite you (and any other interested NH educators) to a training event before school starts at Hopkinton Middle High School. (There will be other events offered later.)
Tentative Schedule is as follows:
8:00 am: Optional Pre-meeting: Installation troubleshooting—answer questions on installation issues, if desired, conduct an actual installation
9:00 am: Official Start Introductions Introduction to GIS in Education 9:15 am: ArcGIS Online: Create a personal account and try out an activity. (Options will include activities appropriate for various grade levels and subjects.)

1:45 pm: Wrap up/conclusion. Where do we go from here? 2:00 pm: Optional “after school “ session: we will hang around for people who would like to stay and continue to play with the software and/or ask questions.
