Paper Title

GIS in Environmental and Wind Energy - Danish High Schools

Paper Abstract

GIS has gained ground in Danish high schools over the past few years at the same time as more flexibility in teaching methods has been introduced. GIS has proved very useful in connection with project work as well as individual differentiation in the classroom.

This session presents the use of GIS--engaging ArcIMS and ArcPad--in high school teaching in Denmark.

The examples show GIS used in environmental and wind energy studies. Student assessment of the projects will be included as well. Furthermore the Danish INSET program for training teachers in GIS will be introduced.
