Join Jim Mathews from Field Day to learn how to use Siftr to extend learning beyond the classroom.

This course provides an introduction to Siftr, a platform designed to support and facilitate fieldwork within groups or communities, such as classrooms or organizations.

In this course you will:

  • Be introduced to Siftr

  • See how other teachers are using Siftr to help their students explore the world and make connections between what they are studying in the classroom and their community

  • Learn how to create your own Siftrs to do similar work with your own students

Siftr (siftr.org) is a freely available data collection and visualization platform that allows users to upload, caption and geotag images and field observations. Uploads can be viewed as icons on a map based on their geo-location or via a photo gallery which displays thumbnail views of the images. Users can sort or "sift" through uploads by zooming into specific locations on the map, sorting by tags or categories, or searching by keyword. They can also comment on each other’s images and captions.
