Data Citizens Western New York – 10/01/2019-09/30/2022

The Data Citizens WNY Grant designed, implemented, and evaluated an innovative professional development model for Civics and Geography educators that improved teacher competence, providing teachers with technological skills needed to prepare tomorrow’s spatial citizens.

The teacher professional development model was designed to support geography, civics, and government teachers and students as they explored global historical questions using geo-spatial data to analyze and address civic issues.

As of October 14th, 2022, the grant ended and any queries about the grant should be forwarded to the grant Co-Directors Jason MacLeod and Henry Boateng.
