National Geographic has adopted the term geo-education to describe the in-school and out-of-school learning experiences where students learn about how the world works.
A well-rounded geo-education provides young people with the knowledge of how the human and natural worlds work at local, regional and global scales. A geo-education also teaches young people to use different perspectives to understand the world.
Geo-education provides learners with a combination of the following understanding, attitudes, and abilities that they will need throughout their lives.
Geo-education is not something that is new. Anyone who helps their students reach these objectives is a geo-educator.
