I think that article needs to be written. It parallels one titled Your Kids Aren't Robots, And That's Exactly Why They Must Know How To Code in Forbes this past week. The argument is that younger students need to learn computational thinking when young in the context of other learning. Some geography educators have similar ideas about integrating spatial thinking into other subjects like history, social studies, science and math. Only later, in high school, suggests author Muhammed Chaudhry, should the formally learn to code.
GIS Careers Infographic
|A bit of the infographic|
The University of Southern California’s GIS Program and Pearson Education have put together an infographic titled “Common Career Paths for the Student of Geographic Information Science & Technology”.The resource is not dated, but the source page is (c) 2013. I was surprised the infographic does not include data from Oxera or Boston Consulting Group reports from 2013. I was curious how Pearson was involved, so I contacted USC.
This infographic was prepared by Pearson for our online USC Graduate Programs in Geographic Information Science and Technology (GIST) in 2013, with the sources that were identified at that time. Pearson provides certain recruitment and student support services to our online programs.Subscribe!
