Abstract

With the continuous development of computer and network technology, computer-assisted technology has penetrated into all aspects of teaching, which has brought about fundamental changes in teaching ideas, teaching concepts and teaching methods. This paper studies the computer-assisted innovative teaching methods of geographic information technology. The questionnaire survey method is used to investigate the current status of computer-assisted geographic information technology from the aspects of usage and influence. The comparative analysis of the teaching practice between Powerpoint and GIS-assisted geographic information technology shows that college teachers are holding an affirmative and supportive attitude towards computerassisted geographic information teaching and the computer-assisted geographic information teaching is superior to traditional teaching methods. Teachers should use computer-assisted technology reasonably in the teaching process and adopt the classroom teaching, autonomous learning and group collaborative teaching integrated with geographic information technology teaching. This research enriches the theoretical achievements of computer-assisted geographic information technology teaching and is of certain guiding significance for the teaching practice of geographic information technology in colleges and universities.
