OSM TagMemory – games for education

A session at State of the Map 2013

Sunday 8th September, 2013

11:40am to 11:50am (GMT)

Taichi Furuhashi
Spatial thinking is thinking that finds meaning in the shape, size, orientation, location, direction or trajectory, of objects, processes or phenomena, or the relative positions in space of multiple objects, processes or phenomena. Spatial thinking uses the properties of space as a vehicle for structuring problems, for finding answers, and for expressing solutions (National Research Council, 2006). On learning these concepts, OSM data is very useful, but it doesn't mean anyone can do this. The student has to understand many definitions and customs of other countries. We have optimised these learning materials as a card game system for Japanese students. One might make the case that they are a prototype of learning materials for geospatial modelling.
