To edcate students in using GIS : A study of how geography teachers in the elementary schools later years and in high school use GIS in teaching (English)
Abstract [en]

Seven years ago came a new curriculum in Sweden. It emphasized that the students should be taught GIS (geographical information systems). 

This survey was done with the aim of getting to know more about how the geography teachers today work with GIS. What problems and challenges do they have in their daily work in the teaching and why they experience their situation as they do? How the curricula are interpreted and how the teachers believe that the teaching in GIS gives the students skills that they will use in life. Both here and now, but also in the future.

The survey was conducted through interviews with teachers within the compulsory school’s later years and within upper secondary school and showed that there is much to be done to make the education in GIS better and correspond to the curricula for the subject of geography. Teachers who, in their profession, are comfortable using digital aids were also more positive to using GIS in geography education.

The study showed that the teachers think they need more time, more money and, above all, more education in GIS in order to manage using GIS more effectively in teaching.
