ABSTRACT

This paper is a study on the mapping application and practice class of OpenStreetMap (OSM), a representative voluntary geographic information system in the free semester system of middle school. From the results of a performance assessment of activities undertaken by students such as editing and modifying OSM with point, line, and area cartographic elements for delineating topographic features, this research analyzes two factors: the level of OSM editing ability and map learning comprehension of each student, and the characteristic contents of each level. Being accustomed to using the Internet maps and their contents on mobile devices in their daily lives provides a robust background for supporting OSM practices in student-led instructional practices. From this study, it is expected that the educational application and its potential for increasing educational outcomes of OSM will contribute to teaching and learning with maps, emphasizing student-led instructional practice being to be increased.
