The People’s Guide to Spatial Thinking, by Diana Stuart Sinton
From the NCGE website: “Throughout their lives, people think spatially in many diverse situations as they comprehend problems and seek solutions. The People’s Guide to Spatial Thinking, the latest publication from the National Council for Geographic Education, defines spatial thinking for a broad audience, describes how it works, and shows why it should be an important component of every child’s education.”
Learning to Think Spatially
The pdf is available for free from the National Academies Press.
From the website: “Learning to Think Spatially examines how spatial thinking might be incorporated into existing standards-based instruction across the school curriculum. Spatial thinking must be recognized as a fundamental part of K 12 education and as an integrator and a facilitator for problem solving across the curriculum.”
Space in Mind, Concepts for Spatial Learning and Education
Edited by Daniel R. Montello, Karl E. Grossner and Donald G. Janelle
From the website: "...leading researchers from a range of disciplines examine the implications of research on spatial thinking and reasoning for education and learning. Their contributions suggest ways in which recent work in such fields as spatial cognition, geographic information systems, linguistics, artificial intelligence, architecture, and data visualization can inform spatial approaches to learning and education."
Spatial Intelligence and Learning Center (SILC)
From the website: “The Spatial Intelligence and Learning Center (SILC) brings together scientists and educators from many different institutions to pursue the overarching goals of
♦ Understanding spatial learning
♦ Using this knowledge to develop programs and technologies that will transform educational practice, helping learners to develop the skills required to compete in a global economy.”
