Learning with Geoinformation in German Schools: Systematic Integration with a GIS Competency Model
Schubert, Jan Christoph; Uphues, Rainer
International Research in Geographical and Environmental Education, v18 n4 p275-286 Nov 2009
While the application of geoinformation (GI) in German schools is becoming increasingly important, a systematic integration in school curricula, arranged in a cumulative and competence-oriented manner, is still lacking. Here the authors discuss existing approaches to the problem and propose a learning strategy based on the stepwise gain of GI skills. The suggested competence model is substantiated by an integrated set of teaching units, structured both hierarchically and by the type of conveyed skill. An additionally provided flowchart serves as a general guideline for the development and implementation of local GI curricula. (Contains 5 figures.)
