Children as Creators of Mutisensory Geographic Information



Elementary schools constitute an impressive potential volunteer source of geographic information. Schoolsenses@Internet is a research project that aims at creating in the primary schools community, the motivation to create multisensory online maps of local and global contexts. The development of an identitary website to share experiences and projects, to establish relations and to mobilize the actors in this community is also a goal of this project. Workshops with teachers and children in diverse real contexts have been already designed and implemented to support the development of project strategies and ICT tools.
