Flynn, K. Colton; Popp, Jennie
Geography Teacher, v13 n2 p61-71 2016
Many educators have suggested that spatial awareness is vital in the foundation of geography curricula, as well as the ability to utilize geospatial technologies (National Research Council 2006; Kerski 2008; Lee and Bednarz 2009; Favier and Van der Schee 2014). The purpose of this research was to identify a low-cost and effective method to improve learning outcomes that incorporate experiential-based learning in an entry-level world regional geography course utilizing GPS, geocaching, and Geo-Selfies.
