Bridging High School and Introductory Undergraduate Courses in Geographic Information Science and Technology
Journal of Geography, v117 n4 p165-173 2018
This article presents the findings of a study to determine the degree of consistency in what is taught and learned in high school and college-level introductory courses in geographic information science and technology (GIS&T). A content analysis identified sixteen topics that are generally representative of the knowledge, skills, and abilities developed in introductory undergraduate courses. The findings were used to propose a standard college-level survey course in GIS&T that could inform future efforts to introduce more academically rigorous GIS&T coursework in high schools, such as through the Advanced Placement Program. [This article was authored by members of the AP® GIS&T Study Group, whose members include Ola Ahlqvist, Dorothy Cassetta, Jacqueline Housel, Niem Tu Huynh, Jolene Keen, Candice Luebbering, Adriana Martinez, and Richard Schultz. The study group was chaired by Michael Solem.]
