La investigación es la piedra preciosa en la corona de la educación geográfica. Una investigación bien desarrollada y fidedigna provee información, hallazgos y entendimiento accesible para los profesionales mientras realizan sus tareas cotidianas. La educación geográfica recurre a la investigación sobre educación en términos de metodología y contribuye a la investigación sobre educación tanto en términos de contenido como de metodología. Investigar es una actividad intencionada y sistemática basada en comportamiento ético. No obstante la investigación en educación geográfica requiere de una cultura conducente a la investigación y a investigadores formados, sostenidos en un financiamiento adecuado para el desarrollo de proyectos, variados en escala y complejidad. Este artículo se basa en un marco de investigación en educación geográfica suficientemente general para posicionar los estudios recientes y actuales y permitir dibujar conexiones entre estudios específicos localizados en lugares particulares y los componentes de un marco que se encuentra representado en la figura Nº1.
