Some nice thoughts on GIS in the Curriculum

Two good posts on the Leicester DIGILIT blog from Rob Manger of English Martyr's School.

The first followed Rob attending a course that I led in the city for the GA a few years ago, and covered Google Earth and some other technologies. At the time, ArcGIS Online was just coming out and offered some real promise.

Worth downloading the documents which accompany this post.

The second brings Rob's thinking up to date, with some thoughts on Digimap for Schools. ArcGIS Online and others, including the new CSV upload feature, Raphael Heath's work and the new GeoForm.

Rob has taken a lot of time to develop his skills in GIS, including attending the recent UK ESRI User Conference in London. I look forward to seeing what he and his students produce next.

If you've used Digimap for Schools in your own school, let me know what you've been up to and I'll share it here.
