Kalra, Rajrani; Gupta, Vipin
International Research and Review, v4 n1 p29-34 Fall 2014
In recent years, one form of technology that has become quite popular in schools and higher education is the Geographical Information Systems (GIS). GIS is one kind of management information system. It includes both the hardware and software components and includes programming of real world problems. It provides support to managers in day-to-day business decision-making. GIS is the depiction of spatially referenced data on a computer-generated map. GIS can be used to enhance transcultural education in a university campus since it is a tool, concept, and methodology that allows a student or a group of students to understand the problems facing a community, domestic or international, and think of potential solutions. This article discusses how GIS can contribute to the emerging new literacy studies. The GIS technology can be used across different disciplines for supporting transcultural education by building intercultural competence (ICC).
