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…

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…

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.
