Company: ESRI Booth Number: 3526/3528 Web URL: http://edcommunity.esri.com Media Relations Contact: Jim Baumann Phone: 909-793-2853 Email: firstname.lastname@example.org
Ideal: Imagine a world where young people are strong problem solving, geographical thinkers with solid 21st century career skills who actively contribute to the good of their local and global communities.
ESRI is actively addressing this ideal. ESRI, founded in 1969, is the world leader in GIS (geographic information systems), and has advanced GIS, spatial literacy, and related skills in schools since 1992.
Classroom: Geography and GIS are obvious companions--GIS appears in the National Geography Standards. However, STEM subjects are where the largest number of educator users is located. Mounting use there and in career education echoes the " Framework for 21st Century Learning."
Careers: CareerVoyages.gov has placed a spotlight on GIS. Thousands of 21st Century jobs require key spatial and technology skills in vital areas such as climate change, public safety, health, and natural resources. Pick a walk of life and GIS and spatial thinking are active.
NECC 2009 will be held June 28 - July 1 in Washington, DC, at the Walter E. Washington Convention Center. This annual conference is presented by International Society for Technology in Education (ISTE).
