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…

Dickinson, Simon; Telford, Andrew – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2020
Increasing attention is being given to how educators might incorporate digital story-mapping into undergraduate geography teaching and assessment, with a particular focus evident on the quantitative and GIS-based values of these technologies. However, we argue that the visual elements of digital story-mapping technologies also raise questions…

Hong, Jung Eun; Stonier, Francis – Journal of Geography, 2015
This article introduces the geographic information systems (GIS) in-service teacher training, focusing on the intersection of technological, pedagogical, and content knowledge (TPACK) for successful implementation of GIS in the classroom. Eleven social studies teachers in Georgia learned GIS technologies, inquiry-based learning, and social studies…

Jo, Injeong; Hong, Jung Eun; Verma, Kanika – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2016
Advocates for geographic information system (GIS) education contend that learning about GIS promotes students' spatial thinking. Empirical studies are still needed to elucidate the potential of GIS as an instructional tool to support spatial thinking in other geography courses. Using a non-equivalent control group research design, this study…

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…

Paterson, Mark; Glass, Michael R. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2015
Google Glass was deployed in an Urban Studies field course to gather videographic data for team-based student research projects. We evaluate the potential for wearable computing technology such as Glass, in combination with other mobile computing devices, to enhance reflexive research skills, and videography in particular, during field research.…

Castleden, Heather; Daley, Kiley; Sloan Morgan, Vanessa; Sylvestre, Paul – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2013
Geography is a product of colonial processes, and in Canada, the exclusion from educational curricula of Indigenous worldviews and their lived realities has produced "geographies of ignorance". Transformative learning is an approach geographers can use to initiate changes in non-Indigenous student attitudes about Indigenous…

Howard, Jonathon Leigh – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2011
Teaching conservation management means more than just learning about solving complex and difficult environmental issues. Such learning must also consider the likely administrative context that students will end up working in. This article outlines the development of a role-play that uses online technology to teach several administrative processes…

Schultz, Richard B.; Kerski, Joseph J.; Patterson, Todd C. – Journal of Geography, 2008
Virtual Globe software has become extremely popular both inside and outside of educational settings. This software allows users to explore the Earth in three dimensions while streaming satellite imagery, elevation, and other data from the Internet. Virtual Globes, such as Google Earth, NASA World Wind, and ESRI's ArcGIS Explorer can be effectively…

Golightly, Aubrey – Journal of Geography, 2008
This article describes the results of a study where the digital versatile disc (DVD) was used as a variant of Information and Communication Technology (ICT) in order to aid in the teaching and learning of map work in geography at secondary school level. A group of grade 10 learners of a previously disadvantaged school in South Africa comprised the…

Songer, Lynn C. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2010
Advocates for using a geographic information system (GIS) in education assert that GIS improves student learning. However, studies to clarify the relationship between learning and using GIS are still needed. This study examines the effects of using Web-based GIS maps in place of paper maps on students' geography content knowledge and motivation…

Gemmell, Alastair M. D.; Finlayson, Ian G.; Marston, Philip G. – Journal of Geography in Higher Education, 2010
This paper reports on the construction and initial testing of a computer-based interactive flood hazard management simulation, designed for undergraduates taking an applied geomorphology course. Details of the authoring interface utilized to create the simulation are presented. Students act as the managers of civil defence utilities in a fictional…
