Karl’s excellent poster got me thinking again about how we can effectively communicate our message.  As we know from the NRC report, spatially literate people need to have the "habit of mind" of knowing where, when, how, and why to think spatially. In this attached 2 page piece, designed to be a 1 page handout that I have recently distributed at some of my GIS-education workshops for educators, I explore how these habits of mind might manifest themselves in 15 different ways in a typical day in the life of a spatial thinker who flies on an airplane one day.   I would be interested in your comments.  Are these types of documents helpful to communicate what we are all so passionate about?  If so, to whom?  What additional documents are needed?
