2 2 What are our geographical tools? create and useinformation create and use appropriate information presentpatterns and processes present patterns and processes explore geographical relationships explore geographical relationships predict and solve geographical problems predict and solve geographical problems act as citizens in a new Europe act as responsible citizens in a new Europe all of which can be enabled by ICT all of which can be enabled by ICT

3 3 Why use ICT in the new Europe? enhance skills of enquiry gain access to a wide range of knowledge and information sources deepen understanding of environmental and spatial relationships consider the wider impact of IT on people, place and environment GA/NCET (1998), A pupils entitlement to IT, Geographical Association Sheffield, UK

4 4 Roles of ICT 1. Information Retrieval core of most Internet classroom activities (access - process - present - represent) combine use of different media - multimedia preparing and sharing authentic information source of relevant, useful, authentic resources

Experimentation and reflection study complexity and dynamics of given situations values, attitudes and decision-making responsibility for own actions tools to help in understanding and interpreting situations and to reflect on outcomes EURO.GEO Project (2003), Needs Analysis Report,

6 6 Experimentation and reflection: some needs Use examples that will encourage: modeling, simulation and scenario building interpretation and understanding of links and factors cyber-places (individual-collective reflection) systems that will encourage action planning critical skills of analysis with a view to decision making

7 7 Roles of ICT 3. Collaboration and communications opportunities for more learning beyond our classrooms, to work with others networks allow communicative interaction, multi- user dialogue (Collis, 1997) teachers unaware of C opportunities of ICT synchronous and asynchronous learning modes structure of teaching and learning needs to change Collis, B.

10 10 Learning environment components A network which allows you to participate together Your profile Activities Information Collaboration Latest news Advice and guidance Involving others

11 11 Workshop Activity 1 Web site Go to the Web site, register as a new user You must have a valid address, you regularly use Enrolment key = geography workshop Complete your profile Explore different parts of the community

12 12 Geography and Citizenship Euro.Geo materials (section 2) I ACT project (section 3) European links (section 4) Other networks (section 5) My Europe Friendship Schools Environment OnLine (ENO)

13 13 Workshop Activity 2 Explore in pairs the Geography and Citizenship materials Look at the I ACT Project – could your school be involved in this? Examine the different European links and networks Discussion

14 14 Citizenship Approach - through deeper learning, different teaching discover research experience thinking about places, people, environments, cultures conceptualise and reflect analyse and evaluate EURO.GEO Project,

15 15 Integrating citizenship in the learning process gather, sort and sift information share and collaborate reflection in appropriate learning situations search for knowledge and understanding critical opinions and ideas develop communicate to express views with others promote actions of responsible citizens creativity, imagination and critical thinking Matache M and Donert K (2002), Environmental Education in Europe, Proc. 3 rd European Conference E- COMM-LINE 2002, Bucharest, September 26-27, 2002 DEGREE OF Active Citizenship
