Abstract [sv]

GIS är inte längre en ny teknologi utan har funnits i snart fem decennier. Trots det har GIS inte hittat sin plats i den svenska gymnasieskolan, jämfört med t.ex. webb-design och andra datorteknikkurser som har funnits under en kortare tid. På den tekniska gymnasieutbildningen på Polhemsskolan i Gävle har GIS-utbildning bedrivits sedan 1999.

De slutsatser som framkommer i rapporten är att en teknisk GIS-utbildning inte enbart är för elever på tekniska gymnasieutbildningar utan även för elever på andra gymnasieprogram eftersom de har samma förutsättningar att lära sig verktyget. Det konstateras även att det genom åren har funnits både nationella och internationella problem med att införa GIS-undervisning i gymnasieskolan. I rapporten finns förslag på hur problemen kan lösas. På Polhemsskolan i Gävle har det dock inte inneburit några större problem, mycket p.g.a. det stora stöd som har funnits tillgängligt.

I rapportens slutdel finns även en uppföljning av vad som har hänt under de tolv år som har gått sedan GIS-utbildningen på Polhemsskolan i Gävle började.

This study shows that a technical GIS education is not only for pupils at the technical education but also other pupils have the same possibilities to learn this tool. Furthermore there is a national and international problem to introduce GIS in the secondary school. There are propositions in this study on how to solve this problem. The introduction was not a major problem at Polhemsskolan in Gävle, because of the large support that has been available.

The end of this study includes a twelve year follow-up since the GIS education at Polhemsskolan in Gävle started.

Abstract [en]

GIS is no longer a new technology since it has existed for almost five decades. Despite this, GIS has not found its place in the Swedish secondary school education, compared with i.e. Web design and other computer skill courses that have existed for a shorter time. At the technical secondary school education at Polhemsskolan, Gävle, GIS education has been taking place since 1999.

This study shows that a technical GIS education is not only for pupils at the technical education but also other pupils have the same possibilities to learn this tool. Furthermore there is a national and international problem to introduce GIS in the secondary school. There are propositions in this study on how to solve this problem. The introduction was not a major problem at Polhemsskolan in Gävle, because of the large support that has been available.

The end of this study includes a twelve year follow-up since the GIS education at Polhemsskolan in Gävle started.
