In a world and economy where progress is driven by technology, acquiring knowledge of computers and technological applications is vital for people of all ages. Geographic Information System, or GIS, is a quickly expanding technological field with endless applications in almost any industry. “GGI’s mission is to provide parents, students, and teachers with the support they need to succeed in the geospatial technology field of study,” says Fran Harvey, GISP, the Managing Director of GGI, f/k/a Louisiana Remote Sensing and GIS Institute. “We provide an engaging, rigorous, hands-on environment where students K-12, as well as life-long learners, can gain the technical, creative and critical thinking skills needed to compete as global citizens in an ever-changing world.”
A Vision to Succeed
With the vision to offer students the newest science and technology through geospatial education, Harvey led GGI to provide the first and only Industry-Based Certification (IBC) for GIS in the State of Louisiana. Harvey’s educational outreach efforts have resulted in 43 school districts and several hundred teachers being introduced and trained in GIS applications. She continues to provide opportunities for educators through the Maps and Apps for Teachers. Teachers can register online for the workshops or for Teacher GIS Certification at www.lagisk12.org.
