Beyond Geospatial Inquiry—How Can We Integrate the Latest Technological Advances into Geography Education?

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

In geography education, geospatial technologies have been actively researched and widely used in combination with classroom inquiry and fieldwork. Recently, emerging data sources and technologies, such as open data, big data, and Artificial Intelligence (AI), are now gaining attention for their educational potential. In this study, both existing and emerging data and technologies are combined and grouped into four categories: (1) Geospatial Web service, (2) open data and big data, (3) fieldwork using Geographic Information Systems (GIS), (4) AI and coding. And based on these, geospatial inquiry activities for learning high school Korean Geography were developed. Learning to use these data sources and technologies is expected to equip students with essential 21st century skills.
