When my 4-year-old told me the other day that she was “ready for princesses,” part of me died. Not just because the day had finally arrived when that virulent meme had infected her, but also because of how utterly powerless I was to contain it. Let me be clear: These...

Bonnie Bracey Sutton's insight:

So what most people will miss is the vandalization of the future by the imposing mass of fear based on the confederacy and the looming presence of its legacy. I grew up in the shadow of lots of these people but there were consequences. We could not vote , own property in certain places and the South lost the war but won the peace. I am sad for those who don't understand. You can't give those years back to me, but you can legitimize my concerns

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 24, 12:00 PM

This is a very insightful podcast that explores some of the many ways that the South is remembered.  History happened, but heritage is carefully crafted, remolded and contested--geographers are especially interested in seeing how these competing visions of heritage are inscribed in the landscape.

Announcing Our 2015-16 Student Contest Calendar ^ NY Times ^ by Michael Gonchar and Katherine Schulten | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
This year we’re bringing back our popular annual editorial, vocabulary, poetry, rap and summer reading contests, but we’re also adding two new contests to the roster.

In the first, which we’ll announce in mid-September, students will be invited to create editorial cartoons. In the second, which we’ll run beginning in mid-October, students will be challenged to write reviews — whether of books, video games, concerts, restaurants or anything else The Times covers.

Seth Dixon's curator insight, August 12, 8:41 PM

I was talking to a good friend about the geographic distribution of poutine after watching the silliest YouTube video. (Montreal is famous for it's poutine, but is in equally widespread throughout Quebec?  Canada?  Is there a core/domain/sphere areas to be mapped? These are the questions that plague geographers.).  True, this map has it's limitations; Instagram hashtag data isn't normalized so the biggest cities tend to pop out more easily, access/use of Instagram isn't uniform, etc.  Still, what a great map to show some geographic applications of social media data.  This sort of map also nicely shows the spatial concepts of region, diffusion, concentration and distribution.

Geography just keeps getting more popular – so what's the subject's secret?

Geography just keeps getting more popular – so what's the subject's secret? | Educational technology , Erate, Broadband and Connectivity | Scoop.it
As geography teachers return to school they will see their subject continuing to expand at all stages of education. For the fifth year running, GCSE entries have risen. At A-level, geography had the largest percentage increase of all the major subjects in 2015, with candidate numbers rising sharply by 13 per cent, following on from the 19 per cent increase in GCSE in 2013. Enrolment on undergraduate courses is running higher than national averages, and graduating geographers experience some of the lowest unemployment levels of any degree subject. Such positive news is welcome and provides a firm foundation for the introduction of the new GCSE and A-levels from September 2016.

So, what has happened to boost geography over the past 10 years? In short, it's a powerful mix of sustained advocacy, support from successive governments, independent evaluation and the slow trickle of messages getting through.

Could one of these projects be used with a group of kids?  Could older ones build for younger ones?
