Elaboration of the specifications of the preparation of the geographic information content for the cartographic resources website of the National Geographical Institute
THE PROJECT "Elaboration of the specifications of the preparation of the geographic information content for the cartographic resources website of the National Geographical Institute" (Ref. CNG1-16T) was developed during the years 2016 and 2017 by the Group of Didactics of the Geography, the Interuniversity Institute of Geography (IIG) and the National Geographical Institute (IGN) and has enabled the development and publication of a section on the IGN Website dedicated to Educational Resources (https://www.ign.es/web/ign/portal/recursos-educativos). The project, developed by a team of university specialists in the teaching of Geography, has made it possible to have different educational levels of widely accepted teaching material for teachers, as well as to infer, among other issues, the number of accesses made to these resources from the Internet.
This production has been presented jointly in different research forums such as the Congreso Nacional de Didáctica de la Geografía of Seville 2016, the XI Curso sobre la enseñanza de la Geografía en la Educación Secundaria. Actualización curricular y aplicación didáctica de las TIC celebrated in Getafe in July of 2018, the Congreso Nacional de la AGE of October of 2018 and in the Congreso del Grupo de Didáctica of the same year. The opinion of the assistants surveyed in these forums about the educational resources available has been widely favorable, showing their interest in introducing them in their teaching practice and commenting on the need to continue working in this line.
As a final assessment of this project, its contribution to the teaching of Geography and its reference as a model of teamwork from the different institutions involved should be highlighted.
