Author

Abstract
An important question for geography teachers all over the world is how to define, stimulate and test geographic literacy. Although modern technology is no guarantee of quality, it offers new possibilities for teaching and testing, as can be seen in contemporary geography learning/teaching units using digital maps and interactive tests. Tests such as the International Geography Olympiad and the Dutch GEA test for geographic literacy are starting points for an international discussion about the quality of geography teaching and for the development of a new international geography test.
