Using ArcGIS Story Maps in Project Based Learning in Online Courses

Effective Practices
All Audiences

Project based learning and multimedia presentations are a major tool to infuse equity based assessments into classes. ArcGIS Story Maps allow students to demonstrate learning through multiple modes, collaborate on projects and integrate spatial data into digital presentations. This panel discussion will introduce the ArcGIS Storymap tool, and highlight different ways it is used in summative assessments and as a teaching tool in online courses in Photography, Geography and Geospatial Technology at Foothill College. (ArcGIS is a premium tool that requires a site license and is currently used at select California Community colleges. Colleges within the California Community College system can purchase their own site license through a purchase agreement with the CCC Chancellor’s office. Attendees are encouraged to check to see if their institution has one.)

Session Outcomes:

  • Explain how ArcGIS Story Maps can be used in online classes to engage students in project based assessments.
  • Describe how Story Maps and ArcGIS Online maps can be used as a collaborative teaching and learning tool in online classes.
  • Discuss the applications of Story Maps as a tool to integrate spatial data and multimedia into student presentations and as a dynamic online teaching resource in multiple disciplines.
