Dr. Deborah R. Grayson: National Geographic Society
The National Geographic Society seeks to develop the Mindset of a National Geographic Explorer in all learners. Together, National Geographic Society and Esri have developed the next iteration of National Geographic MapMaker to promote geographic inquiry and exploration of the world for all learners.
National Geographic Society’s education program is focused on advancing real change in the world by bringing together the power of science education and storytelling.
Using the Geographic Approach is central to driving a change in the world.
Teaching about real-world explorers inspires learners to think like an explorer, expanding curiosity, knowledge and critical thinking.
By leveraging and promoting National Geographic Society education in classrooms, GIS professionals can help to inspire new explorers.
National Geographic Society collaborates with Esri on several educational initiatives, such as the MapMaker application.
