Geospatial Technologies in K-20 Education

In eSchool News I noticed that one of the literacies being promoted or supported, along with Reading and Math and others, is GIS and Geographic Inquiry. It seems like ESRI has a bit of an influence on the page, but there may be some useful resources here for promoting and supported geospatial technologies at all schools. From the GIS and Geographic Inquiry page:

"The growing use of these tools in an array of social studies and STEM subjects supports authentic, problem-based instruction, helping students tackle real social and environmental research projects in their communities."
