GIS (Geographic Information Systems) is computer software system that blends mapping, data manipulation and spatial analysis. This technology has great potential for interdisciplinary projects in K-12 classrooms. Students using this software technology manipulate databases and analyze the spatial representations of that data. This paper will investigate issues surrounding student learning using GIS and students as the leaders in teaching GIS.
