Beidou Navigation System is a satellite navigation and positioning system developed by China. However, the current education of middle school geography has not involved the Beidou Navigation System in China. This paper analyzes the feasibility of introducing the Beidou Navigation System into middle school geography education from the perspectives of teachers, students, technology and policy. By analyzing the advantages of Beidou in middle school geography education, this paper puts forward four practical teaching methods, including classroom teaching, field visit, experiment teaching, and scenario simulation. It provides new learning ideas to middle school students in learning geographic information technology courses and new teaching reference for geography teachers.
