Going Places with GIS and Geography in Education

Going Places with GIS and Geography in Education | Democracy in Place and Space | Scoop.it
Long-time educator Barbaree Duke has been integrating GIS into her classroom since 2000. As a staffer for the National Council for Geographic Education, she actively advocates the use of GIS for geography education in the K-12 environment.

 

GIS is not just for the specialists producing the data.  Exploratory projects can get students to wanting to ask questions and focus their spatial thinking skills

#9-Power of Place: Geography for the 21st Century

#9-Power of Place: Geography for the 21st Century | Democracy in Place and Space | Scoop.it

"The Power of Place: Geography for the 21st Century teaches the geographic skills and concepts that are necessary to understand the world. Geography educators and content experts from around the globe shed light on the physical, human, political, historical, economic, and cultural factors that affect people and natural environments. Maps, animation, and academic commentary bring into focus case studies from 50 sites in 36 countries."

 

#9 on the Top 10 list of resources is this well-known resource for geography teachers, but the list would feel incomplete without this great archive of 26 videos from around the world.

Worth exploring...this isn't just a single random link.  Geocube is a portal to numerous topics, regions and themes.  

Having been voted by the American Association of School Librarians as one of the "Top 25 websites for Teaching and Learning," Geocube comes highly recommended, and rightfully so (see: http://www.ala.org/aasl/guidelinesandstandards/bestlist/bestwebsitestop25?mid=53 ).  This is a must-see.
