Contour Education aims to provide introductory and advanced training for educators in the field of spatial technologies (Google Earth, GIS, remote sensing, GPS and more) that cater to the specific needs of teachers today. Mick Law, a Geography teacher, has a wealth of experience implementing spatial programs in Australian schools and has worked in the spatial industry as ESRI Australia’s GIS in Schools program coordinator.
Many teachers have no experience with spatial technologies so our training is designed to introduce the concepts before moving on to freely available resources. Industry standard software is then introduced once teachers have grasped the main concepts of spatial technology.
This website has a number of online resources that can be accessed for classroom use as well as other resources for teachers to use. Feel free to explore the site or contact us if you are looking for something that is not here.
