Royal Geographic Society looks to spice up flight experience with Hidden Journeys project

Royal Geographic Society looks to spice up flight experience with Hidden Journeys project | Geography Education | Scoop.it
The Royal Geographic Society is the latest to attempt to improve the flight experience with its Hidden Journeys project.

 

This is an article that describes the new, incredibly well-crafted module of instruction designed by the Royal Geographic Society.  Designed as an alternative to standard in-flight entertainment, the user could learn about the many places they are flying over on (at the moment) 19 set flight paths.  Most importantly, this modules uses the concept of scale nicely providing 12 imageswith linked information about each place at three scales: "flying at 12,000m," "flying at 1,000m" and "flying at ground level."  This would be a fantastic resource for a student-guided lesson of discovery and exploration.  To see the RGS modules, visit: http://www.hiddenjourneys.co.uk/
