Combining both theoretical coverage and hands-on lab work, and accessible to majors and non-majors alike, Bradley Shellito's Introduction to Geospatial Technologies has become a new favorite for the digital Earth course. The new edition reflects the latest developments in the field, including how scientists are using GIS data with cloud technology. With lab activities that utilize both widely available freeware and ArcGIS, instructors can tailor the course to their students. Introduction to Geospatial Technologies, Second Edition is available in three formats: a paperback edition, a loose-leaf edition, and a fully interactive e-Book.

Note: This is the loose-leaf version of Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching and does not include access to the Enhanced Pearson eText. To order the Enhanced Pearson eText packaged with the loose-leaf version, use ISBN 0134046919. This widely popular resource balances the theory-based “why” and the practical “how” of using technology to support and shape the future of technology in education. In it, readers see how technology integration strategies link to specific learning theories and how teachers can plan for technology integration, complete with opportunities to practice integrating technology by designing curriculum to meet teaching and learning needs. Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching’s comprehensive technology integration framework—The Technology Integration Planning Model (TIP Model)—is built on a balance of research and proven classroom practices and shows teachers how to create an environment in which technology can effectively enhance learning. Carefully-selected examples and exercises in each chapter encourage teachers to reflect on their practice as they develop the insights, knowledge, and skills they need to integrate technology into content area curricula. Featured are hundreds of lesson examples and recommended resources. The Enhanced Pearson eText features embedded video, Interactive Technology Learning Checklists and exercises, author-recorded Big Ideas overviews, and additional classroom-ready example assessments.

Introduction to Geographic Information Systems, 8th edition is designed to provide students in a first or second GIS course with a solid foundation in both GIS concepts and the use of GIS. Introduction to GIS strikes a careful balance between GIS concepts and hands-on applications. The main portion of the chapter presents GIS terms and concepts and helps students learn how each one fits into a complete GIS system. At the end of each chapter, an application section with 2-7 tasks presents students with actual GIS exercises and the necessary data to solve the problem.

Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching, 5e, the leading Educational Technology text on the market, serves as THE Technology Integration text by "introducing" the concept of Technology Integration, teaching them how "to plan" for Technology Integration, and offers them the opportunity "to practice" Technology Integration into the curriculum to support and shape learning.Integrating Educational Technology into Teaching, 5e incorporates two complementary instructional models to create a comprehensive technology integration framework built on strong research and proven techniques. The Technology Integration Planning Model (TIP Model) shows teachers how to create an environment in which technology can effectively enhance learning. While the Technological Pedagogical Content Knowledge (TPCK) framework, new for the 5th edition, provides teachers with the knowledge and skills to overcome obstacles when integrating technology into their curriculum instruction. The text balances the "why" and "how" of using technology to support and shape the future of technology in education."

This is the eBook of the printed book and may not include any media, website access codes, or print supplements that may come packaged with the bound book. Geospatial technologies in general – and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) in particular – are becoming increasingly important in our society. GIS technology is used to identify the optimal routes for emergency vehicles, to determine the best locations for various businesses, schools, and facilities, to monitor the growth and expansion of urban areas as a way to manage natural resources, and much more. Principles of Geographic Information Systems by John Jensen and Ryan Jensen is an ideal introduction for those who know very little about geographic information systems and spatial analysis. Relatively complex GIS principles are introduced in basic terms, often using graphics to communicate principles rather than complex mathematical equations. Content is not geared toward any single commercial GIS software program, and the book’s timely, practical examples and extensive visual format appeal to today’s students. This text can be used at the undergraduate or graduate level in one or two semester courses in Introductory and Intermediate GIS, yet can also be useful for professionals looking to increase their knowledge in this subject area.
