TeachSpatial is a collaborative web site devoted to promoting applications of spatial concepts and spatial tools in teaching and learning. The site includes core concepts of spatial thinking, presented in the original words of authors from 20 source documents, as well as schemas that interpret, synthesize, and model aspects of spatial thinking.

This work was undertaken by the Center for Spatial Studies at the University of California, Santa Barbara, and received support in 2011 from the U.S. National Science Foundation as a “small-grant pathways project” for the National Science Digital Library (NSDL; NSF-DUE #1043777).
