k12gis -- GIS Discussion related to K-12


About k12gis
English (USA)

The main objective of this list is to provide Geography educators in the K-12 and higher levels, State and local Government agencies, School Districts, teacher candidates, and other supporters of Geographic education a forum to discuss issues of interest specific to implementation and maintenance of Geographic Information Systems [GIS] in K-12 and higher Geographic education.

The list will offer a medium of rapid, meaningful, and inexpensive communication among us so that we may bridge distances -- both geographic and intellectual -- among us for the betterment of Geography Education.

In keeping with the nature of Geography as a discipline, this list will be an interdisciplinary forum for fostering the integration of the Geographic approach to a variety of subjects taught in our schools.

These require that we all observe some simple ground rules [listed below].
