Jung Eun (Jessie) Hong is working on doctoral dissertation research at the University of Colorado, Boulder focusing on training middle school social studies teachers in how to create and customize web-based maps. A total of 30 teachers in Colorado participated in the designing and developing process of the study. Thanks to their support, she has been able to finish developing web-based GIS training tutorials to help teachers develop curricula with web-based maps: GIS for Social Studies (http://www.colorado.edu/geography/cartpro/gisedu/).

She is now undertaking the main testing phase. Teacher participation is vital to assessing the final version of training tutorials. These are online tutorials, so you can test the tutorials anywhere you are available. They are training materials for teachers, so you do not need to use these lessons in your classroom in order to give feedback. Pick one or more topics you want to test. Each topic should take between 45min to 90min to complete. Once you are done, please take the survey (http://www.colorado.edu/geography/cartpro/gisedu/survey.html – the survey password: gisedu). The survey should take between 10min to 15min to complete and the responses will remain anonymous. The results of this study will depend on the feedback from the survey.

If you have any questions, please contact jung.hong@colorado.edu.
