Special Session:
Spatial Approaches in Innovation Education

Innovation Education has recently attracted increased attention within the secondary education community, mainly in the field of science education, but also in the humanities. This is due to both, the need to support the economy with innovators on local, regional and global scales, and the need for alternative pedagogies to make students more innovative. The spatial dimension of innovativeness, however, has not been dealt with consistently – although it may prove imminently usable in a variety of school subjects from mathematics to biology to economics.

This session asks for contributions that analyze the potential of the spatial approach to foster innovativeness across school subjects. Both theoretical as well as empirical research is welcome, as are evaluated practice examples.
