Why Some Students Have Trouble with Maps and Other Spatial Representations part of SERC Print Resource Collection
Toru Ishikawa, Kim A. Kastens
This survey published by the Journal of Geoscience Education has discovered several insights that cognitive and learning sciences can use in geoscience education. First, different students respond to ...
Selective encoding in the interpretation of topographic maps part of SERC Print Resource Collection
This paper describes two experiments in which experienced adult map readers compared three-dimensional land surface drawings against previously and separately studied contour maps. Results indicate ...
The differential susceptibility of topographic map interpretation to influence from training part of SERC Print Resource Collection
This study appraises the extent to which subjects' implementation of map to landsurface matching is task-determined or influenced by training. Study subjects comprised three groups of 19 early ...
Skill in map reading and memory for maps part of SERC Print Resource Collection
K. Gilhooly, M. Wood, P. Kinnear, and C. Green
This paper investigates the applicability of the maxim on expert memory to the case of topographic contour map reading. This study aims to clarify the role of map reading skill in map memory through ...
Students' Misconceptions About the Correspondences Between a Map and the Terrain Represented by the Map part of SERC Print Resource Collection
K. A. Kastens, J. Griffith, L. Liben, and L. Pistolesi
This paper presents the development of a field-based test of map skills requiring students to apply information from a map to the real world and vice versa. Test results show that approximately one ...
Spatial Thinking in the Geosciences part of SERC Print Resource Collection
K.A. Kastens, and T. Ishikawa
This paper discusses the range of spatial thinking skills that geoscientists encounter. The problem of how such thinking occurs and how it might be fostered is addressed in cognitive and learning ...
Students, fieldwork, space and time part of SERC Print Resource Collection
This paper suggests how to get students to build up an overall perspective of the different rock sequences they see during a field excursion. It outlines a five-prong approach aimed at understanding ...
Research methodologies in science education; visualization and the geosciences part of SERC Print Resource Collection
J. Libarkin, and C. Brick
This article addresses the use of visualizations in geoscience education. It traces the technological advancement of visualizations from static materials to animations and interactive models. It ...
