TeachSpatial: Resources for Spatial Teaching and Learning

TeachSpatial: Resources for Spatial Teaching and Learning | Geomatic | Scoop.it

This resource is a comprehensive approach to teaching spatial thinking skills. Terms with spatial reference (i.e.-place, diffusion, migration, situation, scale, region, centrality, proximity, etc.) are defined within their spatial context and related to their multiple curricular connections such as Life Science, Physical Science, Earth Science and (of course) Geography. These terms and concepts then link you to teaching resources, online modules, lesson plans and classroom activities. While useful for all units, this is especially useful for the beginning of a course to teach the importance of spatial thinking skills to then have them permeate the rest of the year.

Documenting the Japanese Earthquake With Maps

Documenting the Japanese Earthquake With Maps | Geomatic | Scoop.it

The latest map from the Nagasaki Archive for the East Japan Earthquake offers a "mash-up" of content that users can explore to "understand the real state of affairs…that cannot be understood by inspecting individual photographs." The map reveals over 100 photos taken from the New York Times overlapping with three-dimensional geographical features that offer comprehensive views of the Sendai airport and Fukushima nuclear plants, 360-degree panorama images, and geographically arranged videos of victims’ testimonies.

Brazil, Russia, India and China are profoundly shaking up the G8. All of these newcomers give aid to developing countries. And yet some still receive substantial aid themselves from the U.S. and other donors.

Shanghai: 1990 vs. 2010

Shanghai: 1990 vs. 2010 | Geomatic | Scoop.it

Globalization has hit...hard and fast.

Maegan Connor's curator insight, December 17, 2013 8:02 PM

Shanghai could arguably be the best example of globalization in the world today. In the span of 20 years, it has gone from a sparse city with some commerce on the river to a major urban center with the skyscrapers and neon lights. The transformation between the two images is staggering and it's easy to see the resemblance between current day Shanghai and it's partner globalized cities like New York and Seoul.

Cam E's curator insight, April 8, 8:23 AM

Apart from what can be said about the process of Globalization, this is just impressive under the lens of what can be done in 20 years to change the skylines and landscapes of an area. Notice the lack of vegetation in the second picture, and while it may just be an effect of the different time of day or season, they sky seems a lot more fogged in the second picture, possibly due to pollution.

Lauren Stahowiak's curator insight, April 14, 3:35 PM

Shanghai has transformed and globalized so quickly in the last twenty years that it doesn't even look like that same place. Skies that were once seen are now blocked by skyscrapers. Buildings that still remain are overpowered and do not stand out like they once did.

2011 UN Human Development Report | Geomatic | Scoop.it
The Human Development Report (HDR) was first launched in 1990 with the single goal of putting people back at the center of the development process in terms of economic debate, policy and advocacy.

 

With a host of links that connect you to videos, charts, statistics about both the present and projections into that future, this is a fantastic resource for any lesson on development.

What is the Built Environment?

What is the Built Environment? | Geomatic | Scoop.it

"So, what is the built environment? It refers to all the man-made places, built up around us by our own society- a term that broadly encompasses all the infrastructure and buildings we see, the mechanical processes and even art that we make. Everything that humans make and build, is the “built environment.”

For Mexico City, a Repurposed Landfill

For Mexico City, a Repurposed Landfill | Geomatic | Scoop.it
Methane from a landfill will flow to a power plant, helping to keep the lights on in the city.

 

When Mexico City’s government shut down the giant Bordo Poniente landfill last December, officials announced that they had a full-blown plan for the site...the city aims to capture the methane gas produced by the landfill to fuel a power plant that could supply electricity to as many as 35,000 homes.

Jessica Rieman's curator insight, February 4, 9:50 AM

This article describes the idea in the making in order to save energy and to put a power plant into a land fill in order to create endless light supply in the city. This new response to power outages is important to look at and ask questions on how the rest of the powere suge and plants will make do with this new repurposed landfill.

Lauren Stahowiak's curator insight, February 4, 9:50 AM

Mexico City is making huge advancements in thier plans of turning methane, created from landfils, to create energy that can be used elsewhere in our everyday needs. This new and recycled energy can be used to produce heat, create light sources and run automobiles. Trash is not going away, so it is a perfect idea to turn trash into treasures. Greater potentials can arise from these advancements and changes.

Amy Marques's curator insight, February 20, 12:47 PM

I think it's great that Mexico City is leading by example and reusing the landfill. The article discussing how the United States has had plans of figuring out what to do with the gases that come from landfills but nothing ever actually happens. The U.S just keeps rebuilding more landfill cells. The methane gas produced by the landfill is going to fuel a power plant that could supply elecricity to about 35,000 homes.

You may be focussing on chocolate over the weekend - but where does it come from? A global trade analysed. In chocolate (this is what maps are made for!

 

What is the geography of chocolate like?  There is a dark side (no pun intended) to the production of cocoa in many places such as West Africa.

Very cool map. I have never really paid attention to where my chocolate came from before.

Interesting for our KS1 chocolate topic.

Brett Sinica's curator insight, November 10, 2013 2:43 PM

We all love chocolate.  We all love diamonds and jewels.  In western worlds, these items are easily come by in grocery stores and elsewhere, but what got them there was a challenge.  People in poorer tropical regions around the world worked to get the raw goods of these delicate items we all enjoy.  The payout difference is immense from cocoa to chocolate.  It is sometimes a very crooked market where if it wasn't for the hard working people who get the raw ingredients, chocolate as we know it wouldn't be the same.
