GIS Education Research

GIS in education research has historically attempted to document effects in one or more trend areas: Educator professional development
  1. Student learning and outcomes
  2. Educator professional development (training)
  3. Educational software development or implementation
The majority of these studies were undertaken as a part of a graduate research project. A smaller portion of this documented effort has come from grant-funded initiatives. Consult the bibliography below for detailed information.
