Esri: GIS Mapping Software offers unique PBL experience

Esri is a geography and data tool that can combine information, find patterns, and make connections. This software is used to solve real issues facing society in real time, but can also be very useful in social studies courses, particularly for project based learning at the secondary level. GIS can help students understand the geographic context for history and world events, allow students to see and solve problems in a new way, and offer a hands-on skill for students after the course.
