Future Teachers' Dispositions toward Teaching with Geospatial Technologies
Jo, Injeong
Contemporary Issues in Technology and Teacher Education (CITE Journal), v16 n3 2016
This study examined the effect of a minimal Web-based GIS experience within a semester-long methods course on enhancing preservice teachers' dispositions regarding the use of geospatial technologies for teaching. Fourteen preservice teachers enrolled in a senior-level methods course offered in geography and focused exclusively on how to teach geography in K-12 classrooms participated in the study. The findings of the study indicate that Web-based GIS activities had a positive impact on participants' beliefs, attitudes, and confidence in GST implementation and teaching spatial thinking in their future classrooms.
