Osborne, Zachary M.; van de Gevel, Saskia L.; Eck, Montana A.; Sugg, Margaret – Journal of Geography, 2020
K-12 geography education is often grouped with other subjects, limiting student exposure to geospatial technology and geographic inquiry. We explored the implementation of geospatial technology in North Carolina K-12 schools through a forty-four-question survey. Educators shared their teaching methods, geospatial technology integration, and…

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…
