Peterson, Emily Grossnickle; Kolvoord, Bob; Uttal, David H.; Green, Adam E. – Journal of Geography, 2020
The goal of the present study was to characterize high school students' (n = 338) exposure to geospatial technologies and investigate factors predicting enrollment in a GIS course. Students who reported using GIS were almost 10 times more likely to enroll than students without experience using GIS. Males were more than 3 times more likely to…

Sun, Yuyu; Lu, Xiaoxu; Wang, Yan – Journal of Geography, 2020
In this article, we use eye-tracking technology to analyze the eye movement differences in cognitive maps between high and low level map-based spatial ability participants, revealing key factors of superior spatial ability. It is found that focusing on the perception of spatial structure information, constructing and manipulating complex images…

Collins, Larianne – Journal of Geography, 2018
This study investigates whether spatial learning outcomes differ with respect to different instructional media. Spatial thinking skills were tested pre- and postlesson implementation via the spatial thinking ability test as eighth grade students participated in either paper-based or digital map-based instruction. Students' attitudes toward…
