The Environmental Literacy and Inquiry Group researchers investigate how to improve environmental learning and instruction in science classes for students in school settings, with a focus on the role that geospatial technologies (GT) such as Google Earth and Geographical Information Systems (GIS) can play. We conduct research in these main areas:
 

    - Designing and testing environmental literacy curricula that integrates GT to promote learning.

    - Developing and analyzing the role that educative curriculum materials can be used to help teachers enhance their science pedagogical content knowledge to use the new curricula most effectively.

    - Assessing the impact of the new GT-embedded curricula on student learning.
 

We are especially interested in investigating:

    - How GT use in schools can actively engage learners in developing essential spatial thinking and data analysis skills as they develop enduring understandings of real-world environmental problems and issues while utilizing the power of technology in learning.

    - How learning science with GT-embedded curriculum influences environmental attitudes and behaviors with learners.
