Revitalizing students' geographical imagination in a digital world

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review

Abstract

Many geographers have argued that geographical imagination plays a crucial role in geography education. Unfortunately, geography teachers often find it difficult to stimulate their students’ geographical imaginations. One emerging concern is to determine how geography teachers can foster their students’ geographical imaginations so that they can develop real understandings of the nature and value of geography. In this paper, two possible areas in which IT can serve a role in revitalizing students’ geographical imagination are presented. These areas include volunteered geographic information and digital cartography
