MapArt Launches “Map the Future” Program for schools

mapart-map-the-future
Even in this digital age, reading a map isn’t obsolete, it is an essential developmental skill that develops a child’s mind and Canada’s largest map publisher is offering to help classrooms out.

A 2013 report on maps and education concluded that teaching a child to read a map builds their spatial reasoning skills. Most consider a child with enhanced spatial thinking skills has a distinct advantage in our global and highly technical society.

Despite the importance, a growing number of children are missing out on mapping skills at an early age and that’s where MapArt, Canada’s leading map publisher is stepping in.

“We’re constantly being asked for out of date maps by local teachers, so they can use them as teaching aids” explains Brian Heiler, national sales manager for MapArt publishing. “We’ve always obliged and thought that the need might be national.”

MapArt has launched the “Map the Future” program, offering classrooms donations of unused but out of date map publications to help Canadian children get better acquainted with map reading.

Teachers across Canada can apply and get all the program details at the MapArt website:

3 Reasons to keep this Road Atlas in your car

IMG_20171211_1028079

The best selling Road Atlas in Canada is back and here are three reasons you should have it in your car.

1.  Maps help you plan. 

 GPS is great for great for “point A to point B” but what about what’s in between? Stop looking at a small segment of the road and see the big picture. It’s not about one or the other, GPS and maps are great together, because you get the now and become aware of all the awesome around you.

2.  Maps never lose service.

It happens, the signal is lost or it just keeps insisting you to drive into that lake. A road atlas is a wonderful second opinion that will also keep you safe and hopefully dry.

3.  Maps can’t run out of battery power.

It always happens when you need it the most doesn’t it? Losing battery power has an amazing sense of occasion. A Road Atlas can keep you from the eternity it takes for your phone to charge.

A road trip is a special time of happiness and excitement, please take us along with you to improve your experience, it’s what we do.

Get the 2018 Road Atlas from our webstore right now or check a retailer near you. Want to talk to us call us 1 877 231 6277
