The Rhode Island Geography Education Alliance will have two separate meetings at the end of this month to help chart the future of the Geography Education in the Ocean State.  I hope you consider attending the one that fits you best.

We’ll follow the presentation with a charette-style discussion of opportunities and challenges for expanded use of geospatial technologies and geographic content and skills in the K-12 classroom.
