Abstract

Educators are experts in content area knowledge and learning pedagogy whereas students are experts in using computer technologies. How do we take advantage of these combined strengths when designing GIS (Geographic Information Systems) curricula and projects? This paper will investigate the issues surrounding students as learners as well as leaders and teachers of GIS technology. Findings from a qualitative study of middle school students who are GIS learners and leaders will be presented.
