Abstract

The rapidly-developing field of geospatial information technologies (GIT) includes such tools as GPS, Google Maps/Earth, and GIS. While GIT holds great potential for learning in preK-16 education, it is unknown to what extent those who train teachers are preparing future educators to use these tools. An online survey was designed to capture data about how faculty and instructors in teacher education programs are using geospatial technologies in their teacher education courses. Initial analyses indicate that a wide range of tools are used, mainly in science and social studies education. Almost a third of the participants also named math education or English/language arts education as another context in which they integrated geospatial tools.
