EarthView : Bridgewater State

EarthView : Bridgewater State | Geography Education | Scoop.it

"EarthView is an educational outreach project of the Department of Geography at Bridgewater State University."

 


Seth Dixon's insight:

Bridgewater State is the home of SEMAGNET, the Southeast division of the Massachusetts Geographic Alliance (housed at Clark University).  Bridgewater State is also home to Project Earthview (I've never been so jealous of a globe before).  This inflatable, hand-painted globe in a fantastic teaching resource.  You can even enter the globe with a group under 20 and explore the Earth from the inside out.  The link is to the Earthview blog, with provides information of the project to take this globe to local schools, and other geographic resources.  UPDATE: This event was televised by WGGB with the clip now online.

I love that Bridgewater opted to teach Geography from such a simple, yet unique perspective. It's an interesting concept to view the Earth outward from its core, and see if that inspires any unique views and observations from students.
