Integrating Spatial Educational Experiencs (Isee) in Soils Teaching
Track: Teaching and Research
Authors: Yue Li, Darrell Schulze
Students must understand soils spatially to address complex problems. The Isee Project enables students to understand how and why soils and landscapes vary at various spatial scales and why it matters. Detailed maps of soil properties are made using the USDA gSSURGO data and combined with a hillshade basemap for display by the Isee iPad app. I will provide an overview of the Isee project, a demonstration of the Isee app, and data on the impact on student learning.
