EarthXplorers is a new online learning environment that offers an inquiry- and project-based approach to learning GIS. The LT Media Lab, in collaboration with the National Trust for Historic Preservation, has designed EarthXplorers to scaffold learners & teachers alike through geographic inquiry. Learners engage in field-based activities, data collection, analysis, spatial visualization, and storytelling as they tackle modern-day challenges centered on national sites of historical significance.
