Kathryn Keranen and Lyn Malone, two retired teachers who now train other teachers to use GIS, and who also write award winning curricula for ESRI [http://www.esri.com/ourworldgiseducation], led educators from across USA on a tour of Yosemite and Shenandoah National Parks for PBS, as part of PBS's educational follow-up to "The National Parks: America's Bes Idea" [http://www.pbs.org/nationalparks], the recently broadcast documentary series by Ken Burns. Kathryn showed what a finished presentation in ArcGIS Explorer [LINK www.esri.com/arcgisexplorer] might look like, and turned it over to Lyn, who walked through the process of creating a presentation. Since the webinar technology had difficulty managing such a dynamic application as ArcGIS Explorer and presenting it smoothly to viewers at widely varied connection speed, the decision was made to do the presentation thru a few dozen screenshots. The screenshots, and silent movies of a practice presentation, are nice intros to AGX, and are available for educators.
