Online Learning Consortium Spatial Thinking and Web Mastery Course Week 5


Greeetings Everyone! Welcome to week five of
the Online Learning Consortium’s Spatial
Thinking and Web Mapping Mastery Series course. Joseph Kerski here
with you to talk about what we’re going to do in week 5. Week 5 of the course reflects back to
what we did in week 1 Remember that in week one we had readings and
reflections in a forum and we also had hands-on activities and
then we had a quiz: A self-assessment that you can use to
assess your own progress. Same thing here with week 5: We are now
regrouping after we’ve had some independent time in weeks two, three, and
four and in week 5 we will gather back together. What we’re going to do is in the readings and reflections we’re
going to reflect how stories can be told through maps! Now maps have been used to tell stories for
thousands of years! And now we’ve got a series of tools at
our fingertips that allows to build what’s called story
maps that are very compelling that incorporate audio, video, sketches, and text and lots more — photographs — et cetera into a storytelling multimedia form of
communication! They can also be used for instructive
purposes as an assessment tool for you as an
instructor to use to assess your students’ progress. Secondly, we are going to browse Esri story maps and reflect on one of particular interest
to you. Now, you’re not limited to one but I’m just going to have
you do one for the purposes of week 5. I encourage you to keep going in this same online gallery as there is a lot there! In our hands on to put we’re going to do
several things! Specifically number one: We are going to
add multimedia to maps using ArcGIS Online: Multimedia can take many forms as I have mentioned. Number two: We are going to examine two stories using lessons and live web maps: The Serengeti road proposals in Africa,
and number two, the story of explorer Ada Blackjack who went
to the Arctic Ocean inside ArcGIS Online back in the 1920s. Number three; we are going to map and analyze the spatial and temporal pattern of real time data. For example, global earthquakes using ArcGIS Online. So those are the hands-on pieces that were going to delve into. The short quiz is going to be about the
content and skills that helps you reflect on your learning, as I mentioned, and it helps your instructor — me — assess
your progress. So, we’ll have a lot interaction; we are
going to do a lot of hands-on work (surprise!) and we’re going to delve into some
of the core things that make up out this whole online web mapping world that is all around us! Thanks! The Online Learning Consortium’s Spatial Thinking and Web Mapping Mastery Series course.
