Call for papers
Our World is changing together with our perception of space and time. We can’t understand the local without referring to the global nor we can’t plan the future avoiding the discussion concerning yesterday’s policies and their effects on the present days. Our World is evolving and growing in complexity because of the infinite new interactions between scales, place and people. To identify the ongoing processes of change is demanding and crucial today more than ever. There is a need for people and students to understand their local environments within the bigger picture of a global changing system.
The first aim of geographical education is to promote this understanding by empowering geographical thinking and doing. Two of the main challenges in this direction are set to provide students a solid and wide spatial perspective that can be flexibly implemented or to improve geography’s potentials through the use of innovative teaching strategies and technologies in both formal and non-formal education either in or out from the class.
Innovative papers on substantial, original, and unpublished research on the main challenges of the geography educations are welcome.
The session is organized and will be moderated by the Italian Association of Geography’s Teachers (AIIG) together with the Commission of Geographical Education of the International Geographical Union (IGU-CGE) and with the European Association of Geographers (EUROGEO).
Participants will be invite to submit their contributes to the new international magazine J-Reading, journal of Research and Didactics in Geography or to the European Journal of Geography.
