Technology in Geography

The Technology in Geography research project analyzes how teachers within Chinese high schools use technology and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) within geography classes to aid in delivering course material. Coming from an educational background that was highly centred on using GIS, I find it critical to include GIS technologies within Geography as a way to engage students and introduce them to the technologies that are available to them. Within Canada, more specifically in Ontario schools there are very few teachers who integrate technology within geography classes. However, within the modern context, in order to educate students in the subject of Geography for tomorrow's world, technology must be utilized. The purpose of conducting this project is to obtain a better understanding of how to integrate technology within a classroom, incorporate the use of GIS within my teaching practice and improve myself as a teacher within the diverse modern educational system.
