digitalearth.eu: geomedia in schools
The digital-earth.eu project examines the use of geographic media in schools and teacher education. Geomedia is the visualisation of information from different media sources and is concerned with digital content and its processing based on place, position and location. Many geographic media are widely used for navigation and routing purposes. Cartographic communication has never been so easy to implement, therefore 21st century school education needs to include geomedia into daily work. There is a need for innovative approaches to teaching and learning to study environments from local to global scale. The Digital-earth.eu network links innovative centres around Europe where geomedia use is well developed. The centres shares products, resources, experiences and ideas and open them to the public wherever possible.
The European Centre and an accredited network of national and regional Centres of Excellence develops an online catalogue of materials, courses, publications, links and good practice scenarios, and publishes a series of core publications.
PMF Research is member of the regional Centres of Excellence.
