Distance Education for Teaching Map Use Skills: An Introduction.
Anderson, Paul S.
A proposed distance education course on map use which is designed primarily for American inservice social studies teachers is described in this paper, which begins with a brief overview of the use of distance education for teaching map use skills. A low-budget distance education course that has been taught in Brazil--i.e., Fundamentals for Photointerpretation--is then described, and the objectives of the proposed course are reviewed. Various kinds of course materials that could be used are listed, and a typical exercise sequence is suggested. Geographic scope and operational issues are discussed, and a tentative arrangement for presenting this course in Illinois that was under consideration when this paper was presented is briefly described. Seven references are provided. (MES)
