Abstract [en]

GIS is a relatively new phenomenon in the subject for geography. In order for the students to get a good GIS education, proper technical equipment is required. The Swedish National Agency for Education show, through statistics about the costs for elementary school, that private schools generally spend more money per student on equipment than what is the case in public schools.

The purpose of this study is to examine if the prerequisites for conducting GIS education differ between public schools and private schools. Are there noticeable differences in the education and the time spent on GIS education? To find the answers to this, six teachers from six different schools, who in some form teach GIS, where interviewed. The results show that the access to the technical devices is better at private schools. The way both school forms present the data that they have gathered is a bit different.
