Students in Costa Rica help protect the mangroves during Earth Day Mapathon. As part of its first annual “Mapathon”, MapWorks Learning asked schools, universities, and environmental groups around the world to map mangrove populations this Earth Day 2014, using the “Mapping the Mangroves” app.
We aim to provide educational organizations--schools, school systems, and informal learning groups with mentorship, connections to peers, a new way of generating ideas and personalized interventions.

Throughout time, maps have been used to create a record of where we have been and as an aid to helping us find where we want to go.
Maps can also show the pathways we take through the process of learning towards understanding.
Much in the same way that maps have been used to chart navigational pathways, MapWorks Learning aims to explore the connection between the physical nature of maps and how learners best make sense of their own learning pathways.
