Webinar Series

The DCWNY Team hosts webinars throughout the school year to provide teachers with hands-on training and experience with GIS. We have currently shifted to an asynchronous model for the webinars to ease the time commitment.

Testimonials

“I think really how beneficial and interactive these maps will be for students. All students have devices so the interactive maps will be great for virtual learning and in school when students return. I think most of the sites are really easy to use and should fit seamlessly into the curriculum.”
