52 Places to Go in 2014 | Geography in the classroom | Scoop.it
From No. 1 Cape Town all the way to No. 52 Niagara Falls, N.Y., explore the vibrant cities and spectacular coastlines, unexpected spots and new attractions that made our list this year.
dilaycock's insight:

Introductory activity to Geography - have students plot these on a world map, look at climate graphs & time zones, plan a trip etc.

Beautiful comment Amanda :)
Meredith Garrison's comment, August 14, 2013 8:39 PM
To see some of these third world countries, and how they live on a day to day basis is a complete eye opener! I think because we live in a first world country, we take some of the things we have for granted. The littlest things like a bar of soap, shoes or even food every night, are things people in these other countries like Ethiopia or Kenya would be dying to have. We don't realize how lucky we are. Especially now in the 20th century, people are becoming greedy and selfish just because they dont have the newest phone or laptop. I think its awful that we are here safe, healthy and well fed, when some people, like in this video are struggling with those few things every day.

This was the most engaging and amazing pod cast that I have seen so far. The pictures were breathtaking and there was always a story behind each one which interested me. One of the pictures that stood out to me most was the man from Mongolia who was holding a huge eagle. The man used the eagle to hunt and he was teaching his sixteen year old son the same technique. This pod cast shows diversity in cultures all around the world and it also makes me want to travel to these amazing places. -Miranda Delaney

Seth Dixon's curator insight, February 17, 2013 4:34 PM

"Earth From Space is a groundbreaking two-hour special that reveals a spectacular new space-based vision of our planet. Produced in extensive consultation with NASA scientists, NOVA takes data from earth-observing satellites and transforms it into dazzling visual sequences, each one exposing the intricate and surprising web of forces that sustains life on earth."


This documentary shows something interesting for the physical geographer, human geographers, and geospatial technology specialists.  In other words, this touches on just about all things geographic (with cool images!).  The overarching theme is that so many things in this world that we wouldn't imagine are actually interconnected with excellent examples.

Thanks so much for this link! I'd completely missed this on PBS, and it is EXACTLY the kind of video I'm trying to get my AP Human Geography students to watch right now. This is getting shared with ALL my kids ASAP. :-)

I just love that Scoop.it allows resources to be shared so easily, and in a manner that is so accessible to students everywhere. Thanks Kenneth.

Geography may have slipped out of the top 10 A-level subjects, but that doesn't change the fact that work done by geographers has global importance, says Michael Palin...

Thinking like a Geographer

Love it. Thanks for this Seth. Just in time to promote Geography at parent/teacher night!
Samuel Yeats's curator insight, May 8, 2013 12:34 AM

A facetious look into the world of studying Geography. These students have obviously gone to a masive effort to explore their passion for Geography. While it may not be a stereotypically academic or intellectual piece, this video is a great representation of how a Geographer thinks broadly, critically and evaluatively.

Carmen Martinez's curator insight, August 26, 2014 12:17 PM

Interesting video!

Make your own slide show at Animoto.

The movie to accompany 'a different view' the Geographical Association's 2009 'Manifesto' for school geography.

Great resource to start the year off.
