ABSTRACT

The purpose of this study is to examine the pedagogical effects of investigating everyday lives from the perspective of time geography using an online visualization tool. The participants observed and reflected on their daily lives and recorded their movements and experiences on a Google-based online platform. This project represents an embodied visualization activity in which individuals described what they perceived, experienced, and thought in their everyday lives with diverse data. The thematic analysis of the participants’ opinions resulted in the following themes: the rediscovery of everyday life space, an evaluation of range of movement, a basis for understanding people’s behavioral patterns, and applications to class. The instructor emphasized students’ interest and active participation, the meaning of the activity and the continuous implementation of the project. This study contributes to the literature because it combines the notion of time geography, 3D visualization, and online geospatial technologies in a productive manner and futhermore connects them to a concrete pedagogical activity.
