What is Geography?

Seth Dixon's insight:

This Prezi was created by students from the Syracuse Geography Department as part of a Senior Seminar to explain the disciple, the major and its utility.   This is a great recap of the discipline, the major and it's utility.

Flo Cuadra Scrofft's curator insight, March 21, 2015 9:38 PM

This presentation talks about the misconceptions of geography and about what it really involves. Geographers describe and try to explain how locations interact and relate to one another; are arranged the way they are; and have become what they are now. They also use critical thinking to project what the world might look like in the future. As there's usually so many questions that have to be answered, geography is an interdisciplinary work, meaning that it is a blend of natural sciences, social sciences, and humanities. Geographers also develop other skills, such as mapping and graphing (spatial representation skills) and development of verbal concepts, frameworks and mathematical models (spatial theorizing skills). Geography, therefore, can be used to study many issues, such as climate change, sustainability, human rights, among others.

Reflection- as the presentation accurately shows, many people believe that geography is just about memorizing countries and our world's natural resources locations, but in reality, geography goes much deeper than that. Geography is about asking questions and trying to come out with the best answers in order to solve issues that can range from local usage of land to international security.

Prezi: an Alternative to Powerpoint

Shake things up by trying Prezi.  This one I use at the end of the semester for my Regional Geography course.  Geography and Prezi are both all about "making the connections..."

"Prezi:" Demographic Transition Model

Prezi in an online alternative to powerpoint for displaying notes and lecture materials (noted for it's ability to see the whole picture, zoom in and it's rotating animations).  Prezi is free for educators and the presentations you made can be kept private or made public.  This Prezi outlines the 4 stages of the Demographic Transition Model, with historical and spatial context.  Thanks for sharing Kari!

I could never "produce" all of this...thanks why I like to word "curate as used by the scoop.it site. In fact I've got my students collaborating with me on the "regional geography" page.

AP Human Geography Review Material

Seth Dixon's insight:

Over 166,000 students are preparing to take the AP Human Geography test on May 15th.  With that in mind, I went looking for resources so here's what I found.

  • I just discovered this Prezi (embedded above) which is a systemic, unit-by-unit review of major ideas. 
  • Since some reviews don't take into account the 2013 changes, I created this hyperlinked Slideshare presentation to explain the changes. 

Best of luck on the exam!  Have something to add to the list?  Let me know.
