ABSTRACT

This paper reports on a case study that aims at examining the effects on student learning of Geographic Information Systems (GIS) by introducing storytelling in teaching/learning activities, such as stories being told to the students, and stories that the students told. After the introduction of storytelling, positive effects on student motivation were observed, as well as demonstration of higher-order learning. Narratives helped students to internalize the learning, especially when the narratives were personal.

Keywords: Storytelling, GIS education, higher order learning, motivation
