Don’t take our word for it! Ask our 2021 Fellows:
“The flexibility of the program to make what we are doing meaningful to our students first and foremost [was something I liked about being a fellow]. We clearly teach in very different contexts with specific needs, requirements, etc. and I appreciated how [the center] honored that diversity.”
“I was not even considering using ArcGIS with students before this fellowship. The whole idea was intimidating and I wasn’t aware it was free through ESRI. Learning about it in pieces (and especially in the training you expertly led us through) makes me feel like I have the tools to create experiences with students.”
“I am thinking a lot more deeply about maps and how the data used to generate them can serve so many purposes and agendas. However, teaching students to think critically while teaching them how to use and make maps is endlessly rich and something I want to bring into daily classroom instruction.”
