"Google Drive is a powerful productivity suite with an increasing potential in education. From storing documents to creating stunning presentations and drawings, Google Drive empowers you with the necessary tools to enhance your productivity and augment your workflow.  I have been sharing several guides and materials on how teachers can tap into the power of this platform and this section aggregates all I have shared in this regard so far."

Just what is Geography?

Just what is Geography? | Geography interactives | Scoop.it

 

"I'm a geographer. Yes, I study rocks, but I'm not a geologist. I consider weather and climate when I study people--but I know the environment doesn't determine a culture's development. Hydrology and oceanography are cool. Please don't feel threatened just because I know about economic, political, and cultural globalization. I read Darwin, Lovelock, Marx, and Tuan--all in geography classes. The newspaper calls me a local historian. My neighbors think I'm an expert on roads. I hang out in cemeteries. I've served in government--far more successfully than the self-proclaimed 'business experts.' Capitals? I really haven't memorized them, thank you. But I can think spatially and holistically. I love my planet. I'm interdisciplinary. I'm a geographer."

This is one of those frequently asked questions in Geography class that sometimes results in increased confusion. The maker of this video has summed it up nicely.

Tony Aguilar's curator insight, November 8, 2013 2:44 AM

What makes a country a country is if they play by the rules, of other soverin nations on a global scale and follow the rules. Most countries recieve taxes from their citizens, have a military and a recognized as a soverin. Not every body of land is a country but are also properties controlled by other countries. There are countries in the South Pacific. In North, South America, Europe, and Asia, and bevcause of politcal geopgrahpy nations sizes are changing often and new countries are usually created from theis process

Jemma Tanner's curator insight, October 28, 2013 5:42 AM

The only grades I would use this video in would be 5 and 6. This is because it uses some higher level language that younger students may not understand (I'd most likely play it more than once so we can pick apart the information together as a class). I like this resource because it gives a quick overview of what we as a country consider to be an important use of water. This video could be used as inspiration for an inquiry task, or it could be used to begin lessons about our own smart water usage - i.e. discussions about how much 13 gigalitres is and how it was used by industry and households alone in 2010/11.
