Syfr Corporation is a K-12 education senior executive professional development company. It strives to present to and link school superintendents and similar administrators with innovative thinkers, companies, ideas, and best practices to stimulate the future of K-12 education and student success.
On December 9, 2009, Syfr in collaboration with the Texas Association of School Administrators and the Los Angeles County Office of Education brought over 30 school administrators to the Esri campus as part of a three-day field trip. The intent of the seminar:
- Learn who Esri is and what we do
- Discover what GIS is and how it is used in and is changing the everyday world
- Find out what we do in K-12 education in the classroom and across the administration
- Learn how we became the world leader in our industry, how we deal with change, and how we continue to innovate and create.
The links below provide pathways to content that was discussed during the seminar for those in attendance and others. Additional resources are listed that expand and further explore the importance of GIS and geographical thinking in classroom, career, and community as well as in school administration and education policy.
