    Topic: Mapping Brooklyn: Digital Tools to Support Place-Based Learning

    Abstract: Participants from a range of disciplines will discuss their experiences using geospatial mapping tools for research on, and instruction in, Brooklyn’s social history and urban development. We will confront a central challenge in using technology in undergraduate education: developing digital tools that are at once approachable and compelling, while providing sophisticated computer-based applications that have the capacity to yield new insights into topics from the humanities.
