Summary:
According to literature, satellite imagery and its use in teaching have positive effects on education. Amongst those stand out the development of geographic thinking, the more holistic understanding of the world and the realization of the problems the conscious citizen of the future will encounter. The present postgraduate work took place at the Pedagogical Department of Primary Education of the National and Kapodistrian University of Athens. The field it falls in is Satellite Imagery in Education and its aim was the evaluation of material created by the European Space Agency (ESA) which used satellite images in the case study “Climate change and glaciers”. The educational material of said case study was studied and analysed to identify both positive aspects and points for improvement. Subsequently, qualitative proposals for upgrading the material were applied in the classroom. This led to identification of necessary elements in making the material effective and useful for the Greek students.
