Overview


GISetc started providing two-day GIS workshops for teachers in January 1999. In August 2000, we held our first week-long GIS Institute with teachers representing nine different states. Since then, the company has offered one or two GIS Institutes annually with participants coming from the United States, Canada, England, and New Zealand. GISetc has developed a training model that is effective for beginners to advanced users of computer technology in geospatial and general technologies. In addition to summer institutes, GISetc offers customized professional development opportunities throughout the year through school districts and colleges of education. The mission of GISetc is to provide cutting-edge GIS professional development, curriculum and software support to K-12 and post-secondary educators and students.
