SPACIT Intro


Geo-media (i.e. spatially enabled mobile devices, online mapping tools, volunteered geographic information) have become easily accessible in everyday life. We therefore need to be aware of both the opportunities as well as impacts and challenges of using geo-media in society. This emerging geoinformation society warrants the development of new capabilities if people are to successfully participate as responsible “spatial citizens”.

A spatial citizen should be able to interpret and critically reflect on spatial information, communicate with the assistance of maps and other spatial representations, and express location-specific opinions using geo-media. These capabilities need to be addressed at secondary school level. SPACIT provides the relevant teacher training activities.

    The SPACIT project
  • analyses dimensions of the geo-information society,
  • develops both a competence model and curriculum for in service teacher training to enable students to successfully participate in the geo-information society
  • conducts and disseminates teacher training courses based on this work.
