Geoliteracy is important for K-12 students to learn in today’s increasingly connected world. There are many online tools that can help teach students geographic perspective and spatial reasoning. This webinar will look at some of the most useful sites for K-12 education focusing on geoliteracy skills, human-environment interactions, and other basic geographic principles. The intended audience is educators of all types: teachers, school media specialists, and other geographic information librarians who are interested in collaborating with the K-12 educational community. Sponsored by ALA MAGIRT - the Map and Geospatial Information Round Table.
