ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to discuss the meaning of spatial citizenship and to introduce relevant geographic activities. This study defines spatial citizenship as the comprehensive competence that includes knowledge and skills for using geospatial information effectively to participate in democratic decision-making processes and attitudes toward creating a wide range of spatial scenarios and taking part in social issues actively. In addition, this research conducted a project to promote spatial citizenship in which students created an alternative tour plan in the Daegu Modern Street from the perspective of the handicapped. The students visualized their routes on Google Earth, an interactive online platform, and furthermore shared their activities with peers. This study adds to the literature because it discussed the definition of spatial citizenship and conducted an empirical research in the context of spatial citizenship.
