Empowerment is a natural consequence of taking control of your own circumstance. In this poster I share some techniques for empowering students to take charge of their own learning through the use of innovative teaching tools in an active learning classroom, and the use of a web-enabled platform for providing continuous remote access to lab software and spatial data. The discipline of remote sensing can be daunting as it is based in physics, mathematics, and digital image processing using highly specialized software. With the use of active learning approaches in class, we establish baseline concepts supported by smart projectors, digital pens, and various approaches to problem-solving. With the use of these, and other tools, the learning approach is placed more directly in the hands of the student, allowing them to pave their own path to understanding through guided self-exploration and discovery.
