President Obama’s recently announced ConnectED Initiative aims to transition schools to digital learning through upgraded connectivity, access to learning devices, teacher support, and digital learning resources. Esri is proud to contribute to ConnectED by providing our ArcGIS Online web mapping tools and learning resources to all schools in the United States for free.
With ArcGIS Online, students can use maps to explore places in their community or around the world. ArcGIS Online includes content from leading providers like National Geographic, the National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NOAA), and the US Geological Survey (USGS). Students can also create maps from their own data.
Using ArcGIS Online helps students develop problem-solving, data analysis, communication, and technology skills that lead to college and career readiness.
