Announcement for the Meeting: With support from ESRI, the RI Geography Education Alliance will have another series of workshops to help educators learn how to bring online mapping skills into the classroom. In 2015, Lyn Malone and Seth Dixon ran this as a week-long summer institute. Not everyone has a week in summer, so some have asked to have this presented on the weekends. These sessions will be condensed into two full-day workshops this fall; they will be on October 22 and 29. Participants that complete either of the 2-day workshop will receive a $100 stipend as well educational materials that will help bring GIS into the classroom. Lunch and some light breakfast refreshments will be provided.
