New Certificate Program
Spatial Literacy Certificate Program
Spatial literacy is the confident and competent use of maps, mapping, and spatial thinking to address ideas, situations, and problems within daily life, society, and the world around us.
In spatial literacy, we find important links with numeracy, information literacy, and graphicacy, skills that enhance the basic preparation for life after K-12–especially in the workplace. In a world where data visualization and geospatial tools are the norm, spatial literacy is a significant asset for students and teachers of all ages.
This program, available online beginning in Fall 2011, will prepare teachers to purposefully address spatial thinking in multiple subject areas.
