The training aims at improving the capability of the training
participants – teachers – for teaching Geography Information System by
(1) giving information and introduction about the process in implementing
SIG for the teachers of senior high schools (SMA/MA). (2) Demonstrating
how to operate the technology of geography information system and (3)
socializing the existence and technological implementation system of
SIG. the methods used are speech, discussion, peer teaching and practice.
The place to practice it is in the laboratory of Geography faculty of UMS.
The participants are allowed to operate hardware and software of SIG.
The result of pretest by using questioner and brainstorming shows that
most of the participants master SIG in cognitive domain in comprehension
level for the theory of SIG, while for its operation; they are in perception
level of psychomotor domain. At the end of the training, the participants
show that there is the change of comprehension about the theory of SIG
from cognitive level to implementation level, whereas in the operation of
SIG, the change is from perception level to implementation with guidance.
The result of training is supplemented by the response of the participants
which is appropriate to the target score. The response of the task of
identification is the use of map and SIG in teaching Geography which
finds that teaching Geography in senior high schools (SMA/MA) is
directed to 3 targets: 1. analyzing the impulse of physical nature and the
development of the shape of the earth and its reservation. 2. Evaluating
social impulse in the earth and its interaction as well as its effect to our
life and 3. Using the concept of region and graphic in understanding
location, design, distribution and the relationship among the objects
involved the specification for industry.
