Abstract

There are two issues that most educators and researchers would agree upon. One is that geography had been badly neglected and largely disappeared from the American school curriculum by the 1970s (Egan, 1983; Gregg and Leinhardt, 1993). The other is that as computer technology becomes increasingly sophisticated, more and more computers are being used in the field of elementary education to improve students’ learning achievement (Kinnaman, 1990; ASCD, 1990; Ouyang, 1993). Teachers in elementary schools are faced with the challenge to revive geographic education. The use of increasingly sophisticated computer technology can be an effective way for teachers to face this challenge.
