A project of spatial discovery, October-November 2007
The focus of the Churchill Fellowship was to investigate the use of spatial technology in education and associated spatial literacy at the system and school level. The project involved the exploration of materials used and methodologies employed to ensure successful classroom implementation of spatial technology by teachers. It was hoped by visiting spatial education experts and stakeholders in Hong Kong, the United States, Canada and the United Kingdom that an awareness of how spatial education implementation has been successfully undertaken in schools. The project aimed to develop templates of good classroom and system practice to use in in-service activities and teaching materials in Australia.
