Geo-capabilities: Teachers as curriculum leaders

Cite Embed

The GeoCapabilities 2 project emphasises the value and role of geography as a school subject in cultivating the development of human capabilities.

A capabilities approach to education considers how the individual in his or her context can lead a life that she or he has reason to value. GeoCapabilities argues that acquiring ‘powerful’ geographical knowledge through a geography education is of fundamental value to developing ‘capability’. This requires thinking about what should be taught. GeoCapabilities asks teachers to consider the role of geography and their teaching in helping young people reach their full human potential.
