National Geographic Education Resource

Since its founding in 1888 “for the increase and diffusion of geographic knowledge,” the National Geographic Society has worked to educate audiences about our planet. National Geographic Education is responsible for creating educational programs and resources for schools, out-of-school settings, and the home. National Geographic Education’s work targets two goals:

  • Geo-Literacy: Geo-literacy is an essential skill for decision-making in 21st century personal, professional, and civic life. It is the ability to make decisions based on an understanding of how the world works and how people and places are connected. It requires an understanding of how Earth’s interconnected human and environmental systems function, how to reason geographically, and how to make systematic decisions.

 

  • Educational Outreach: The National Geographic Society is home to rich and diverse resources that have enormous potential to support learning. As the educational outreach arm of National Geographic, National Geographic Education is committed to maximizing the impact of the Society’s rich media, scientific, and exploration programs on the education audience.
