Spatial Literacy

Vote 0 Votes
Is "spatiality" a neologism in the making?

I have been hearing about things "spatial" lately and wondering. At ALA in Boston, a friend described how he has just become a liaison to a program called "Spatial Studies" and at a recent Libraries Brown Bag presentation, Kate Peterson showed a slide that included "Spatial Literacy" as a core competency for undergraduates.

Is this about reading maps? It seems to be more:

"Lost in Space: On Becoming Spatially Literate." Knowledge Quest v. 36 no. 4 (March/April 2008) p. 32-9.

This is written from the K-12 teacher perspective but applies to us as well. 
It's a nice introduction to the concepts.
