Thinking Spatially About Learning: Using Geographic Tools to Enhance Learning
Presenter: Jim Wells, MLTI
Spatial thinking a mode of thinking that uses space and place as a way of developing understanding. Spatial thinkers use image and place to make meaning, and use a holistic view of a problem as the start point to investigation and solving challenges.
In recent years, the digital tools available to spatial thinkers for use in learning have developed in previously unimaginable ways. And yet these tools seem woefully underused in education as a whole. Many students could define themselves as spatial thinkers, and yet their styles of learning are not fully met in many classrooms. This session will attempt to highlight some of the ways in which spatial thinker's needs can be met with the use of geospatial tools.
