Spatial awareness and line drawing are taken to a new level by way of GPS technology. After a brief introduction to the functioning of the GPS unit, students will complete a series of activities that will deepen their awareness of the space available to them on the landscape and the opportunities afforded by changes in the landscape. Students will then plan and complete the drawing of a line figure using the digital recording of their travels that appears on the GPS screen. These digital records (tracks) will be uploaded to a satellite image in order to produce a novel artefact.
