Doering and LT Media Lab colleague Jeni Henrickson presented the new EarthXplorers project during a power session of the National Trust for Historic Preservation annual PastFoward conference in Washington, DC. Harnessing the power of maps, storytelling, and modern tech, EarthXplorers is a free, inquiry- and project-based online learning environment designed to educate learners worldwide about the importance of historical preservation and the role of GIS in problem-solving contemporary issues. Slated to launch in spring 2016, EarthXplorers is a collaboration between the LT Media Lab, the National Trust for Historic Preservation, and geospatial pioneer ESRI.
