Integration of Geospatial Science in Teacher Education
Hauselt, Peggy; Helzer, Jennifer
Journal of Geography, v111 n5 p163-172 2012
One of the primary missions of our university is to train future primary and secondary teachers. Geospatial sciences, including GIS, have long been excluded from teacher education curriculum. This article explains the curriculum revisions undertaken to increase the geospatial technology education of future teachers. A general education class introducing geospatial technology to the general student body has been developed, a cartography class has been modified to provide applied geospatial experience explicitly for future teachers, and a service learning partnership with local K-12 schools has been established where students are working with teachers to integrate geospatial sciences in their academic programs. (Contains 3 tables and 4 figures.)
