Transform your students into Geospatial Scientists

Map My School is an online course to help you lead students through a mapping project from start to finish.

How do you provide real-world context to your STEM program?

Run a STEM project with real world applications.

You need to show real STEM outcomes; to demonstrate that you're preparing students for the careers of today (and tomorrow). But, how do you go beyond learning technology and transition to applying technology in real-world applications? Map My School is the online course that will show you how to teach the spatial mapping concepts that your students use every single day.

Available in Lite and GIS editions

Map My School includes two versions for different experience levels and student year groups. Whether you teach primary or secondary school, there's a Map My School project for you.

Learn to teach spatial technology

Give students a taste of a career in STEM.

You use spatial technology every day. Google Maps, GPS, and location services are all examples of spatial mapping at work. Map My School will empower you to lead students through a project to map the amount of shade on the school grounds.


Resources and Introduction

Get to know the learning objectives, real life applications, and software required (provided free) for the project.

Module 1

Mapping Software Introduction

A walk-through of the Geographic Information Systems (GIS) interface. Learn to setup mapping projects correctly.

Module 2

Creating Data

Use existing satellite data of your school (we'll show you how to get it) and begin to digitise this data to identify land features.

Module 3

Analysing Data

Learn to interpret spatial data to answer geographic inquiry. You'll learn to extract statistics and calculate shaded areas.


Maps for Communication

Good scientists can communicate their findings clearly. Learn to guide your students through creating maps for presentation.
