The Use of Computers in the Teaching of Geography.
Kent, W. Ashley, Ed.
Eleven essays describe state of the art developments in the use of computers and computer-assisted learning to teach geography. Descriptions of the use of computers in the teaching of geography in their respective countries are contributed by educators from the United Kingdom, Italy, Belgium, The Netherlands, Australia, New Zealand, Scotland, United States, USSR, Hong Kong, and Canada. The contributors were asked to summarize recent developments; outline hardware and software trends; note the response of teachers in using computers; outline the research needs; and give insight into the future. It is hoped this publication will point to future collaborative research and development possibilities for the international community of geographical educators. (APG)
