GI-Pedagogy

GI-Pedagogy is a project aimed specifically at supporting teachers and educators in teach with GIS in their classrooms. .

The project has two aims:

  • first, to review existing pedagogies relating to GIS and to develop effective and innovative new approaches; and
  • second, to embed those approaches through a combination of teacher training and resource provision.

The focus of the project is on giving teachers the training they need to fully incorporate web-based mapping software into the geography curriculum. The GI-Pedagogy project will produce a toolkit of resources for teachers, available for free on the project website. Once a toolkit for teaching with GIS is developed, this resource will be shared and disseminated via in-person training events and online.
