Krakowka, Amy Richmond – Journal of Geography, 2012
Field trips have been acknowledged as valuable learning experiences in geography. This article uses Kolb's (1984) experiential learning model to discuss how students learn and how field trips can help enhance learning. Using Kolb's experiential learning theory as a guide in the design of field trips helps ensure that field trips contribute to…

Slocum, Terry A.; Dunbar, Matthew D.; Egbert, Stephen L. – Journal of Geography, 2007
This article discusses modern stereoscopic displays for geographic education, focusing on a large-format display--the GeoWall. To evaluate the potential of the GeoWall, geography instructors were asked to express their reactions to images viewed on the GeoWall during a focus group experiment. Instructors overwhelmingly supported using the GeoWall,…

MacEachren, Alan M. – Journal of Geography, 1987
This paper considers the origins of computer mapping, where it is today, and where it is headed in the future. The emphasis is on fundamental changes in cartography, the way geographers approach map portrayal of spatial data, and the use of maps in spatial problem solving that have resulted from computerization.

Slocum, Terry A.; Yoder, Stephen C. – Journal of Geography, 1996
Outlines reasons why computer programming should be taught to geographers. These include experience using macro (scripting) languages and sophisticated visualization software, and developing a deeper understanding of general hardware and software capabilities. Discusses the distinct advantages and few disadvantages of the programming language…

Keiper, Timothy A. – Journal of Geography, 1999
Investigates the potential use of geographic-information systems (GIS), a computerized spatial-analysis tool, for teaching geography to elementary students. Finds that GIS offers students opportunities to practice geographic skills and is highly motivating, but it can create frustration. Suggests several promising approaches to using GIS at the…

Bednarz, Sarah Witham; Audet, Richard H. – Journal of Geography, 1999
Presents a survey on the degree of training in geographic-information systems (GIS) given to prospective geography teachers. Reveals that only a handful of programs intentionally expose student teachers to GIS in a meaningful manner. Discusses implications for plans to integrate GIS into the curriculum. (DSK)
