  • Descrição: Geography is rapidly becoming more interactive, especially with the advent of the Global Positioning System (GPS) and Geographic Information Systems (GIS) and their adoption in the public and private sectors. The days of two-dimensional maps are quickly being replaced by geographic images that are stored electronically in computers and handheld devices, which also house layers of information that are available with the click of a button. This change in the way information is stored, retrieved, and used is transforming business, industry, and government, allowing for a more efficient use of time and money, and in some cases, saving lives. In order to prepare gifted learners to lead in the future, which will likely require competence in technological skills, social studies educators and teachers of the gifted should utilize GPS and GIS in their teaching, allowing students to use real-world information to address authentic problems. Appended are: (1) Geocaching Terminology and Guidelines for Teachers and Students; (2) Web Sites for Navigating the Geocaching World: Sites and Resources; and (3) Geocaching Resources. (Contains 4 tables and 2 figures.)
