The simplest parts of the geography material are facts and data. Facts are statements speaking for themselves, which have to be studied and reproduced. Such facts can be the names of countries, capitals or geographical superlatives (the longest river, the highest peak, the smallest island, etc.).
The order of magnitude of the most important data and data sets has to be rendered perceptible, too. The connections among these should be recognised and hereby students can gain indirect information in the given theme.
During geography lessons our students read facts mainly from their books or atlases. This work requires little thinking and students do not pay any special attention to it. Therefore we should urge them to find the necessary sources on the Internet.
Handling and analysing data as well as working up the information is a rather complex task for students. The regular use of nEtQUIPMENT during lessons aids geography teachers in this matter.
