Day 1 of the 2012 Esri GIS Educational Conference begins shortly. Yours truly will have the honor of speaking on the stage with my colleague, Joseph Kerski. Since I was privy to the other plenaries at our rehearsal yesterday, I know you’ll hear the phrase “spatial thinking” in almost everyone’s presentation, and ArcGIS Online will figure prominently this year as well.
JJK and I will be talking about “open educational resources.” Open is a word that can be construed in many ways, and that’s okay. Such definitions are not always mutually exclusive. I’ll be using “open” as both an adjective and a verb, like my friend Jeremy Crampton does too. I look forward to the lively discussion.
