This book presents a range of educational approaches and ideas around learning with and about geomedia, taking into account the potential as well as the risks and challenges associated with the use geomedia in education. This includes understanding the inherently biased nature of maps and other spatial representations; the power of geomedia produced by institutions, as well as the power of geomedia produced by lay persons; the use of geoinformation in the control and surveillance of individuals and groups, and the opportunities of georeferenced data to foster innovative knowledge. Addressing these aspects in essence means preparing students for an emerging Geoinformation society.
