THE DELAWARE CENTER FOR GEOGRAPHIC EDUCATION

During the suspension of face to face school activities due to the Covid-19 Pandemic, DCGE is working closely with its UD Social Studies affiliates and the Social Studies Coalition of Delaware to identify standards focused instructional materials and activities that parents and teachers can share with their students. We'll be adding a new folder under our Resources tab labeled COVID 19 where you will be able to find resources. Our DCGE FaceBook page is also posting links to resources. For particular needs, send us an email with your request.

2021 ArcGIS Online Competition

https://education.delaware.gov/arcgis/

Announcing the opening of the 2021 ArcGIS Online Completion for US High School and Middle School Students. Delaware's Geospatial Education community is partnering with Esri to challenge ALL high school and middle school students (whether onsite, online, or hybrid) to create and share WebApp* projects that capture some aspect of life in Delaware. Esri's 2021 ArcGIS US School Competition is open to high school (HS, grade 9-12) and middle school (MS, grade 6-8) students in the US who have learned how to analyze, interpret, and present data via an ArcGIS storymap or web app. Delaware's top 5 MS and top 5 HS submissions will be awarded a cash prize and receive state and national level recognition for the work! Delaware will select one MS and HS entrant to compete nationally. Winners at the national level will each earn a trip to the 2021 Esri Education Summit in San Diego, CA.

Teaching with GIS, Even During a Pandemic

The NCGE Webinar Program is a live professional development series that features a robust program of geography educators from around the world. The program offers an opportunity to learn new skills, interact with your colleagues and experience new tools and resources. A two-part series will introduce participants to ArcGIS Online, a web-based geographic information system that is free for use by K-12 teachers and their students. For the past five years, their team of teachers and university faculty has been using ArcGIS and its related tools to teach high school social studies and science.
