ABSTRACT

Teacher’s positive disposition is an important factor for successful implementation of educational technologies into classrooms. This study examines Korean preservice geography teachers’ beliefs and attitudes regarding the uses of geospatial technologies, such as GIS and GPS, in their future classrooms. The results show that preservice teachers acknowledge the possible benefits that GSTs have for geography education but lacking confidence in using GSTs for own teaching practice. In order to develop positive attitudes towards implementing GSTs into classrooms, it is desirable that teacher preparation programs provide preservice teachers with more opportunities to learn how to teach with GSTs.
