Publicado el

Gi Learner presentation at the Scientix 2018 conference held in Brussels on May 4-6 2018. The presentation introduces the project and presents learning lines, Gi Learner resources, activities and the work of pupils. The project examines the integration of spatial thinking into the curriculum through the establishment of learning lines based on spatial thinking competences and GI Science.
The workshop provides links to resources and materials developed by the project

  16. 16. http://www.gilearner.eu Action steps 1. Summarize research literature  report 2. define geospatial thinking competencies 3. develop an evaluative tool to analyze the impact 4. create learning lines translating them into learning objectives, teaching and learning materials for the whole curriculum (K7 to K12)

  23. 23. http://www.gilearner.eu Bednarz and van der Schee (2006) • address key issues related to GIS implementation: • teacher training, • availability of user friendly software, • ICT equipment in schools. • use a community of learners approach • institutionalize GI Science into curricula Literature Review Recommendations
  24. 24. http://www.gilearner.eu Learning progression line • construction of knowledge and skills throughout the whole curriculum • reflect a growing level of complexity, ranging from easy to difficult
  25. 25. http://www.gilearner.eu Learning progression line: example Learning lines Field- work Working with images Working with maps Working with statistics Creation of knowledge Level 1 Perception – knowledge of facts Level 2 Analysis – selection of relevant geographic information Level 3 Structure – look for complex connections and relationships Level 4 Application – thinking, problem solving
  26. 26. http://www.gilearner.eu certain spatial thinking skills are higher order than others and build upon previous, less complex skills Concept = the region Learning progression
  27. 27. http://www.gilearner.eu Based on the review: 10 GI-Learner geospatial thinking competences, each with a progression inside from easy (A) to more elaborated (C) Key Literature Literature Review
  28. 28. http://www.gilearner.eu Geospatial thinking Ten proposed geospatial thinking competences: 1. Critically read, interpret cartographic and other visualisations in different media 2. Be aware of geographic information and its representation through GI and GIS. 3. Visually communicate geographic information 4. Describe and use examples of GI applications in daily life and in society 5. Use (freely available) GI interfaces
  29. 29. http://www.gilearner.eu Ten proposed geospatial thinking competences: 6. Carry out own (primary) data capture 7. Be able to identify and evaluate (secondary) data 8. Examine interrelationships 9. Synthesise meaning from analysis 10. Reflect and act with knowledge Geospatial thinking
