OpenStreetMap is a superb tool for teaching geography interactively as well as global digital citizenship. It is easy to use, and free of charge, and most of all, it is rewarding for students making it an unparalleled educational tool which can help people locally as well as globally. It is important to reach out to students, educators, community organizers, and contributors to understand the value of teaching OpenStreetMapping within the classroom. Teachers reaching out to other teachers, contributors reaching out to teachers and students, are all ways OpenStreetMapping will diffuse into classrooms across the world.
