“Every teacher needs to improve, not because they are not good enough, but because they can be even better.” 

Dylan Wiliam, UCL IoE


GI Pedagogy is an ERASMUS+ funded project (2019-2022). 

It is a school education project that focuses directly on innovative pedagogy specifically applied to national curricula, and aimed at trainee and early career teachers. It was developed as a response to the need to train teachers how to integrate innovative GI (Geographical Information) Science pedagogy into their lessons

It seeks to do this by developing teacher training resources and a toolkit document which connects the use of GIS with the principles of Rosenshine and cognitive science. 

The project intends to draw together and transform existing available knowledge, materials, concepts, and ideas into the training of new and early career teachers, while also offering further possibilities for the professional development of more ‘experienced’ teachers, particularly those who may be starting out on their journey with the use of GIS.
