  • Editorial: Geographic Information and Education

    • Authors: Niels Nielsen
      Pages: 2 - 2
      Abstract: How did we learn to work with geographic data, and how did we get started with and through an education that enabled us to create, structure, analyze and communicate geographic information' Was it the school atlas, or the scouts' use of maps and compasses, that got us going, or was it an inspiring geography teacher in high school, the field trip to Florence, or a surveying course' This themed publication takes stock of teaching with and about geographic information and GIS at the entrance to the twenties. We have managed to collect some exciting contributions that give an insight into GIS teaching in today's primary and secondary education.

  • GIS in high school with a focus on Geosciences A

    • Authors: Ebbe Skovgård Brønnum
      Pages: 3 - 3
      Abstract: Initially, this paper outlines the framework and expectations for the inclusion of digital maps at different levels of natural geography and geosciences in high school. In addition, some perspectives are presented on how GIS can be used in a Geoscience A level high school class.

  • GIS for use in primary and secondary school

    • Authors: Jesper Nielsen
      Pages: 6 - 6
      Abstract: "SchoolGIS" is a combination of exercises in science issues and free access to browser-based GIS software, where data can be collected, stored, processed, analyzed, and, not least, visualized via digital web maps. The purpose of the application is to help school students to recognize connections between the complex phenomena of science. Digital maps are a powerful tool for differentiating teaching, and they offer something special in the form of beautiful visualizations on web maps. When you look at a map and see, e.g. how volcanoes are placed like pearls on a string along the tectonic plate boundaries, it tells its own story as an excellent supplement in the recognition phase of a complex context. Here follows the story of the "SchoolGIS" project's relevance, background and genesis, and the opportunities and perspectives that come with it when schools get free access to powerful GIS software.

  • GIS in the Danish high school

    • Authors: Niels Vinther, Lars Andersen
      Pages: 9 - 9
      Abstract: Fifteen years ago, there were high expectations, that GIS would have a dominating role in the teaching of geography in the Danish high school. Many went on courses in order to learn using GIS for educational purposes. The expectation was that GIS would be an integrated part of the daily lessons. However, how has the integration of GIS actually been' We present a status of how much GIS is used in high schools with focus on progress and setbacks. In addition, we look at what is going to happen in the future. One thing is for sure: GIS has come to stay – also in the geography lessons in high schools.
