The digital-earth.eu project examines the use of geographic media in schools and teacher education.
Geo-media is the visualisation of information from different media sources and is concerned with digital content and its processing based on place, position and location.
A digital-earth.eu infrastructure has been developed. The European Centre and an accredited network of national and regional Centres of Excellence produced an online catalogue of materials, courses, publications, links and good practice scenarios, and are publishing a series of core publications.
The digital-earth.eu network links innovative centres around Europe where geo-media use is well developed. Products, resources, experiences and ideas have been shared between the Centres and opened to the public wherever possible.
The digital-earth.eu initiative connects institutions, outstanding in the field of geo-media, as accredited “digital-earth Centres of Excellence”. Geo-media is the visualisation of information from different media sources and is concerned with digital content and its processing based on place, position and location.
digital-earth.eu Centres of Excellence (CoE’s) actively promote the use of geographic (geo-)media in education for schools, teacher education, universities, industries and organisations in their own context and locations. They are connected by the European Centre of Excellence, sharing approaches, products, resources, experiences and ideas, making them open to the public wherever possible.More Information
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 geo-media into daily work. Innovative approaches to teaching and learning are needed to study environments from local to global scale.
