Visualizing Global Studies: A Mapping Workshop for Educators


August 4-7, 2014

Our 2014 four-day intensive summer workshop focusd on the use of digital media and mapping resources in the classroom. Geared toward secondary educators in the humanities and social sciences but open to those in all subjects, the workshop featured training in tools for data visualization, map creation, map annotation, and map-based storytelling, a guided look into available online collections of maps and geographic data, as well as presentations by scholars and experts who are using these resources in their own work. Workshop participants developed their own projects throughout the course of the week using these digital tools.

Tools discussed included WorldMapHealthMapTweetMapNeatline and Google Earth, all freely available online.
