Teaching the History of Education Panel

A hands-on workshop on the uses of digital mapping in historians’ research and teaching.

Jack Dougherty (Trinity) will offer an introductory tutorial on Google Maps, a helpful tool for basic visual displays. Andy Anderson (Amherst) will demonstrate the more varied capabilities of ARC/GIS software. Participants are encouraged to bring laptops to the session, although some desktop computers will also be available. Participants will create sample maps using shared data and learn how to incorporate mapping into their own work.
