Feraco, Tommaso; Bonvento, Marco; Meneghetti, Chiara – Applied Cognitive Psychology, 2021
Orienteering is a sport that involves navigating. As navigation skills relate to individual visuospatial factors, it is worth examining whether practicing orienteering is associated with people's visuospatial abilities and wayfinding attitudes. A sample of 51 participants comprising three groups of 17 individuals with different orienteering…

Hodgson, Michael E.; Piovan, Silvia E. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2022
An introduction in the use of small unmanned aerial systems for mapping is becoming a desirable course for undergraduate students. The controllability of drone aircraft and quality cameras, even in less expensive aerial models, offers opportunities for students to learn and collect their own imagery for a variety of applications. This opportunity…

Johnson, Elijah T.; McNeal, Karen S. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2022
Spatial thinking skills are crucial for success in any of the STEM (science, technology, engineering, and mathematics) domains, and they are malleable. One approach to support the development of student spatial skills is through the use of innovative technologies, like the augmented reality (AR) sandbox, that can also effectively teach geoscience…

Cockrell, Jay; Petcovic, Heather L. – Journal of Geoscience Education, 2022
Topographic maps are a common form of 3D surface elevation data represented as a 2D display. Despite their use in geoscience courses, many students find learning to effectively read and interpret these maps challenging. Here, we present a tool for teaching topographic map interpretation using 3D printed terrain. The terrain was 3D printed from a…

Briwa, Robert; Wetherholt, William – Geography Teacher, 2020
Map literacy is a key goal of geographic education learning outcomes. Geography classrooms develop map literacy through practicing map skills (Sandford 1986; Hanus and Havelková 2019). One area where map skills pedagogy is deficient is in teaching the analysis and interpretation of maps as inherently political objects, with bias and latent meaning…

Havelková, Lenka; Hanus, Martin – Review of International Geographical Education Online, 2019
For a few decades, map skills stay at the forefront of not only geographers' and geographic educators' research interest. To identify what has already been accomplished, where the research currently stands and where the potential for future studies lies, a review of the literature was carried out. Specifically, this comprehensive synthesis of map…

Havelková, Lenka; Hanus, Martin – Journal of Geography, 2021
Spatial thinking is a crucial aspect of geography education with which all citizens should be equipped. This study employs eye-tracking technology to research strategies (their repertoire, distribution, effectiveness, and adaptiveness) used by upper-secondary students when analyzing spatial patterns with thematic maps. The results show that…

Donnelly, Michael; Gamsu, Sol; Whewall, Sam – International Journal of Social Research Methodology, 2020
A new method is proposed here aimed at eliciting the mechanisms which maintain the relational positioning of people and places within social space. This 'mapping tool' is inherently relational by design and involves participants creating visual representations of their geographic imaginaries, encompassing their perceptions and preferences of…
