ITEM:  Geospatial Workshop for GeoPriSM project

A "Community Atlas" is the recommended culminating geospatial project for the GeoPriSM program, and a great way to include PBL in your program.  For the past two years we have been developing and refining a rubric for use in guiding project planning and evaluating the final projects.  This workshop will introduce the final version of the rubric, allow you to practice using it to evaluate a project, and discuss ideas for its use in planning your own project.

When:  Saturday, December 3, 2016 1:00-3:00 pm

Format:  Small group, distributed webinar at various places around the state.  We know that most of you prefer to meet "in-person" instead of via a webinar, so we've arranged for meeting locations in a variety of areas to cut travel time.  In addition, if you can't make one of these locations, you can attend directly from your computer.

Locations:  Choose one of the following sites to attend:

*         Hopkinton Middle High School, Contoocook, NH

*         Keene State College, Keene, NH Science Center Room 264

*         Plymouth Regional High School, Plymouth, NH

*         Lancaster Area in the North Country--Exact location to be determined

*         Online only

Schedule (estimated):

1:00 pm:  Introduction to the Workshop and Rubric (grid layout & Google Form)

1:15 pm:  Evaluation of a project using the rubric

1:40 pm:  Discussion of the evaluation process--sharing within the small groups
