ESRI GIS Education Community

While we weren’t there for the announcement today, we have had a few minutes to leaf through the announced ESRI GIS Education Community site that:

is a living environment for the exchange of ideas and experiences, curriculum, software, and data among GIS educators around the globe

Most of the content has existed in different places on the ESRI site, but from what I have seen so far, it is much easier to access everything from lesson plans to the MacOS X widgets that I have not even seen before (just feed widgets so far, but I am sure they will role out an ArcWebExplorer widget eventually). If you are an educator or on the prowl for continuing ed content head over to the ESRI GIS Education Community site and give it a look.
