Give your students the geographic advantage
The GIS for Schools program brings industry leading software to P-12 schools across Australia. Interactive maps created using Geographic Information Systems (GIS) make learning come alive in mainstream subjects—geography, history, science, environmental studies, agriculture—and beyond.
Using mapping technology in the classroom illustrates geographic context, helping students connect lessons with real places. Spatial analysis and critical-thinking skills prepare young minds to succeed in studies, further education, and most importantly, life.
Every public, private, home school, and youth-serving club is eligible for the program.
The GIS for Schools program includes:
ArcGIS Online organisational and user accounts (50, 500 or 2000 users)
ArcGIS Online is cloud-based GIS software, with no prior installation necessary, where students can use, create and share maps and apps. Your organisation account also provides access to the ArcGIS Living Atlas of the World—a great resource for the classroom.
