Support National Academies Reports Learning to Think Spatially: GIS as a Support System inthe K-12 Curriculum Geographic Information Science has significant but as yetunrealized potential for supporting spatial thinking across arange of subjects in the K-12 curriculum (pg. 8) Successful K-12 STEM Education: Identifying EffectiveApproaches in Science, Technology, Engineering, andMathematics Increase STEM literacy for all students, including those whodo not pursue STEM-related careers or additional study in theSTEM disciplines (pg. 5) 5. What are the GoogleSpatialTechnologies? Geobrowsers (i.e. Google Earth) GPS Remote Sensing GIS 6. Geobrowers Easy to use Ubiquitous? Provide a new vantage point on the world (the way in?) 7. GPS Hugegrowth in the automobile industry Lots of schools have handheld GPS units good opportunity to collect data (VGI or citizen science) Do GPS units make us locationally stupid? 8.
