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“We’re constantly being asked for out of date maps by local teachers, so they can use them as teaching aids” explains Brian Heiler, national sales manager for MapArt publishing.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MapArt has launched the “Map the Future” program, offering classrooms donations of unused but out of date map publications to help Canadian children get better acquainted with map reading.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:
