Causton, Julie; Theoharis, George – School Administrator, 2013
Today, when trying to find a way to an unfamiliar destination, many rely on global positioning systems, or GPS technology. "Recalibrating" and "Whenever possible make a legal U-turn" are now ubiquitous phrases in the audio backdrop to many car trips. One can think about modern-day inclusive education in similar terms. The…

Milson, Andrew J.; Kerski, Joseph J. – Social Education, 2012
The recent National Assessment of Educational Progress in Geography revealed that few American students can identify locations of current events, the scale of those events, or why those events are important. Social studies educators have found that by incorporating emerging technologies into their classroom--such as Geographic Information Systems…

Lovatt, Ian – Physics Teacher, 2009
Newton's law of gravitation is a central topic in the first-year physics curriculum. A lecturer can go beyond the physical details and use the history of gravitation to discuss the development of scientific ideas; unfortunately, the most recent chapter in this history, general relativity, is not covered in first-year courses. This paper discusses…

Mathews, Adam J.; Flynn, K. Colton – Geography Teacher, 2018
Incorporation of Global Navigation Satellite System (GNSS) technology in the classroom has quickly been adopted by instructors in geography and related disciplines because it provides an effective, low-cost, easy-to-use, and hands-on technique to reinforce geographic concepts (Brown 1999). The most frequently utilized GNSS is the Global…
