The mission of the Geographic Educators of Nebraska is to improve the quality and quantity of geographic education in the schools of Nebraska. GEON uses hands-on workshops where teachers teach teachers use best practices in geographic education. We seek to accomplish this by expanding geographic content and classes in Nebraska schools, colleges, and universities, supporting educators (including pre-service) in their efforts to infuse geography and geographic content into their classrooms, and teaching: modeling, practicing, and exemplifying dynamic geographic education practices. By doing these things we hope to increase awareness and appreciation of the geographic perspective among both educators and the general public, facilitate the flow of information regarding geographic education and related issues amongst educators and the general public, and advocate for Nebraska educators with regard to geographic issues at the local, state, and national levels.
