Beschreibung

This book is an initiative presented by the Commission on Geographical Education of the International Geographical Union. It focuses particularly on what has been learned from geospatial projects and research from the past decades of implementing geospatial technologies (GST) in formal and informal education. The objective of this publication is to inform an international audience of teachers, professionals, scholars, and policymakers about the state of the art and prospects of geospatial practices (GPs) as organized activities that use GST and lessons learned in relation to geographical education. GST make up an advanced body of knowledge developed by practitioners of geographic information systems (GIS), remote sensing (RS), global positioning systems, (GPS), and digital cartography (DC). GST have long been applied in many different sectors; however, their first use in higher education began in the early 1980s and then diffused to secondary schools during the 1990s. Starting with GIS and RS, it evolved into a much broader context, as GST expanded to include GPS and DC with new communication technologies and Internet applications. GST have been used around the world as a combination of tools and special techniques to make research, teaching, and learning more effective.



Osvaldo Muniz Solari is professor of Geography in the Department of Geography and Associate Director of the Gilbert Grosvenor Center for Geographic Education at Texas State University, Texas, United States of America. He is a core faculty for the Ph.D. Program in Geographic Education. He received his Master of Arts degree in Geography from Michigan State University and a Ph.D. in Geography from The University of Tennessee. His main fields of research are online learning methods in geography, new technologies for global collaboration, and international flows. He is a member of the Steering Committee of the Commission on Geographical Education of the International Geographical Union. He is also a member of the US Commission in Geography of the Pan American Institute of Geography and History (PAIGH), Organization of American States.

Ali Demirci is an associate professor at the Department of Geography, Fatih University in Istanbul, Turkey. He received his Ph.D. degree in 2004 from Marmara University in Turkey and studied secondary school geography education in the US as his dissertation subject. His major research interests are geography education in general and geospatial technologies and their applications in geography education in particular. Many of his studies were published in national and international journals in a wide range of topics including curricular developments, the use of GIS and other geospatial technologies in geography education, and the application of GIS and Remote Sensing in different areas. He is the author and co-author of many books published in Turkish and English some of which are 'GIS for Teachers' published in Turkish by Fatih University with the support of Esri-Turkey; 'GIS-based Projects at Schools: Examples of Using GIS for Education' published by Esri-Turkey, and 'International Perspectives on Teaching and Learning with GIS in Secondary Schools' published by Springer. Over the past ten years, he has been

involved in many national and international activities such as organizing and managing projects, conferences, workshops, and courses to introduce GIS to secondary and higher education institutions. He is the Vice President of the Turkish Association of Geographers and a steering committee member of the Commission on Geographical Education of the International Geographical Union.

Joop van der Schee is professor of Geography for Education and Communication at the Faculty of Geosciences, Utrecht University, The Netherlands and also professor for Geography Education at VU University, Amsterdam, The Netherlands, appointed by the Royal Dutch Geography Society. He is co-chair of the Commission on Geographical Education of the International Geographical Union. His main fields of research are learning with digital maps and thinking through geography strategies. In both areas he has published in English, German and Dutch since 1987.
