CD - The classification of environmental resources and the forms that water takes as a resource.

 

This interactive map documents where 443 million people around the world get their water (although the United States data is by far the most extensive).  Most people can't answer this question. A recent poll by The Nature Conservancy discoverd that 77% of Americans (not on private well water) don't know where their water comes from, they just drink it. This link has videos, infographics and suggestions to promote cleaner water.  This is also a fabulous example of an embedded map using ArcGIS Online to share geospatial data with a wider audience.

CD -  The classification of environmental resources and the forms that water takes as a resource.

Zoe Pyke's curator insight, August 27, 2013 5:16 AM

TED talks are a great way to obtain information in generally short bursts. This clip is only 3 1/2 minutes long so easily watchable by younger studnets without them losing interest.

 

It could be used as an engaging way to start a unit on water and water usage.

 

The clip uses language that is understanable and graphics that make the information clearer and easier to digest as well as being something interesting to watch.

The world, here, is literally at your fingertips. It is a simple way for anyone to locate a multitude of data about any given place around the world. It is another way that brings the whole world that much closer in this technological era.
