Consejos para instructores

In this video, learn how high school biology and statistics students are asking better questions, discovering patterns, and confronting biases with a mapping project that visualizes trees in their neighborhood and beyond.

There are a number of free apps that can help students document the biodiversity they discover near school or home:

  • iNaturalist can engage students in citizen data collection.
  • Seek has automated (non-expert) species ID, and protects student identity.
  • PictureThis is a plant identification app.
  • Survey123 is an ESRI app directly linked to mapping tool ArcGIS. The app supports data collection in the field, storage, and sharing. Collated classroom data can then be shown on a digital map.
