Dive Into Data Science – A GIS Champions Pilot Project

About this Event

We are pleased to announce that LGfL and Esri UK are offering all LGfL schools the opportunity to take part in a Champions Pilot Project that focuses on the use of maps, apps and data visualisation. Through the free ArcGIS Online platform, you can easily make sense of complex data for meaningful teaching and learning.

The ArcGIS platform allows teachers and learners to:

• Collect primary data quickly and accurately

• Access high quality secondary data at local and global scales

• Make data meaningful through easy to create maps and infographics

• Create interactive, narrative driven resources for your classroom using Storymaps

• Work with us to develop appropriate pedagogy around teaching with ArcGIS Online

This world leading GIS technology powerfully supports the effective delivery of the geography and wider curriculum in Primary, Secondary and SEND Schools.

Find out more about ArcGIS Online inside and outside of the classroom here.

LGfL and esri UK are hosting a pilot project in LGfL offices on the 25th February for interested LGfL school teachers and curriculum leaders.
