Zombie Based Learning OSM Style

A session at State of the Map US 2013

Saturday 8th June, 2013

9:30am to 10:00am (PST)

Geography is becoming less and less emphasized in the Florida public school curriculum partly due to the standardized assessment system. In an attempt to inspire our youth and promote geography as a life skill, Patrick has spent some of his free time volunteering at local schools. In this talk he’ll talk about Zombie-based geography lessons that utilize OpenStreetMap data and other open tools he’s used in an effort to grow students’ interest in contributing to OpenStreetMap and learning how geography will benefit them in the event of a zombie apocalypse.
