Geographic Information Systems (GIS) are part of a rapidly growing field that reaches many of us through vehicle GPS navigation systems and applications like Google Earth and Mapquest. Virtually all the data that runs our daily lives has some geographic element. Geographic literacy has therefore never been more important. Mr. Stewart Bruce is Assistant Director for the Center for Environment and Society and GIS Program Coordinator at Washington College in Chestertown, Maryland. He is a vigorous advocate for the advancement of GIS in K-12 education. This session will explore and discuss ways that libraries can help to reach the school age population with this vital resource.
